Iris Hoey – The Sketch – Wednesday 31 July 1907

THE HEROINE OF THE NEW MYSTERY OF A HANSOM CAB: MISS IRIS HOEY.

  

Mr. Shirley Falcke, a very young man who lives with his parents in Cromwell Road, fell very deeply in love with Miss Iris Hoey, who played in “The Little Michus” at Daly’s. Miss Hoey did not encourage Mr. Falcke, as she was engaged. He became very depressed, and telling Miss Hoey that he was going to Canada, he asked her to spend his last evening in London with him. He took her to the theatre, and afterwards said that he was going to commit suicide. He drove Miss Hoey home, and when he said good-bye he repeated his threat. Miss Hoey became alarmed, jumped back into the cab, and insisted on seeing Mr. Falcke to Cromwell Road. On the way he pulled out a revolver and shot himself in the chest. Although very seriously wounded, Mr. Falcke was considered likely to recover.
