mains a mystery to the authorities investigatinp the case No decision had been reached this afternoon although the opinion of I the majority of officials indicates that j the bus drivers death was one of suicide due to despondency Two I outstanding facts substantiate this i belief One is that Cfissidy had been I extremely despondent since the death of his wife a year ago and had previ ously attempted suicide in his horr by inhaling illuminating gas and the other is that Cassidy was left handed and could have inflicted the wounds on himself Cassidy was seen lingering in the neighborhood of the quarry by sev eral people and one man stated that he hud seen Cassidy on the ledge of the quarry in the afternoon ap parently in deep meditation The postmortem examination made by Dr John M Hutchins of Clifton Heights disclosed that Cassidy had four bullet wounds one each in the liver spleen kidney and head Coroner J E Scheehlc said that no new developments had occurred in the case and still believes that the death was one by suicide Besides the coroner county detec tives and the Ridley township police are working on the ease All are of the same belief a5 Coroner Scheehlc although they are making every effort to discover added details and circumstances The murder theory has been losing ground rapidly and the investigators arc expected to return a verdict of suicide some time today The ledge on which the mans blood stained hat nnd revolver were found is approximately fifty feet from the waters level There was no evidence of any struggle either at that point or anywhere
