SHOCKING DEATH OF A LADY’S MAID.

 

ROASTED ALIVE WHILE COMBING HER HAIR.

 

NAOMI LAMB, maid to Mrs. Butson, of Hackness, Westgate-on-Sea, while curling her hair with the aid of a lighted candle, set fire to her clothes. She was found by her mother, a cook in the same house, on the landing with everything burned off her body except her stockings and boots. She died shortly afterwards in the Margate Cottage Hospital. At the inquest a verdict of “Accidental death” was returned.
