Wednesday, October 23, 1839Murder at Carbonear - Coroner's Inquest - On Saturday last, an inquisition was taken at Carbonear before John Stark, Esq., Coroner, on view of the body of DENIS CALLAGHAN, fisherman and laborer, then and there lying dead. It appeared in evidence that one THOMAS NOWLAN, a fisherman, had returned to his tilt at Carbonear, from Hr. Grace, on Wednesday evening, 16th inst., and that about a quarter of an hour afterwards, the deceased Denis Callaghan was seen to enter Thomas Nowlan's tilt, situated only a few yards from the house of his mother-in-law, Mrs. Cullinna.. A great noise and loud talking and screeching from Nowlan's wife and the deceased was soon afterwards heard, and it being supposed that both Nowlan's wife and Callaghan had been murdered. Assistance was procured, the door of the house was ultimately unlocked by Nowlan himself, when the deceased Callaghan was found severely wounded in the head, lying upon a bench near the fire, almost speechless, his body covered with blood with several mortal wounds in the head and a great deal of blood on the bench and the floor. He was carried to his own house and expired about ten o'clock the same night. The body presented a sad spectacle; there were several mortal wounds and one of a circular shape, as it had been inflicted with the muzzle of a gun. The head was neatly dissected by Dr. Walsh, in the presence of the Coroner and Jury. The investigation continued for two days, many witnesses were examined and on Saturday, a highly respectable jury of 17 in number, and of which Mr. JOHN FOOTE was elected foreman, unanimously returned a verdict of willful murder against Thomas Nowlan. The Coroner instantly issued his warrant for the apprehension of the murderer, who was still supposed to be lurking in the neighborhood of his own dwelling, situated on the margin of the woods. Mr. Power, the stipendiary magistrate, Carbonear, and his constables have been, and continue to be on lookout, in the endeavors to discover the felon, and it is hoped he will be apprehended. There is little doubt that the murderer had but too good cause to be jealous of the deceased, and it was to this jealousy the murder is attributed.
