Cyril Douglas Gowlett1

M, b. 9 April 1905, d. 15 October 1929
  • Cyril Douglas Gowlett was born on 9 April 1905 in Queensland.1
  • He was the son of William Alfred Gowlett and Davidenia Ward.1
  • Cyril Douglas Gowlett died on 15 October 1929 in Queensland at age 24. Cyril, a school teacher, was found dead in a room in the Australian Hotel. His friend, a married woman named Emily Bertha Taylor (nee Harth, wife of Ambrose Taylor) was found in another room in the hotel suffering from the effects of poisoning. She claimed they had a suicide pact (they ate chocolates laced with strychnine) because she could not get a divorce from her husband Ambrose Taylor and Cyril's family were against the marriage. She was charged with murder but later this charge was dropped and she was charged with attempted suicide. However this charge was also later dismissed.2
  • On 13 November 1929 The Brisbane Courier reported on the murder of Cyril Gowlett " Emily Bertha Taylor (aged 31 years), on remand, appeared in the Police Court to-day, before Mr. F. C. M. Burne, P.M., to answer a charge that on October 15, at the Australian Hotel, she murdered Cyril Douglas Gowlett, a school teacher. Inspector Loch prosecuted and Mr. E. W. Cleary appeared for the defendant.
    Detective Sergeant Kiernan stated that at about 3.10 a.m. on October 15, he went to the Australian Hotel, and saw Donald Carey (licensee) and his partner, Mildred Deacon Taylor. He went with them to a bedroom upstairs. In a bed he saw the body of a young man, fully dressed. There was no indication of a struggle having taken place on the bed or in the room, and there was nothing to indicate the cause of death. Later he went to a bedroom on the western side of the building, and noticed that a bed in that room had been disturbed, as if some person had been occupying it. He saw on the chair near the side of the bed a tumbler about half full of a liquid, which he took to be water. On a dressing table in the room he saw a lady's handbag, in which he found a sealed letter with the words: "To be opened by the police when I die." The letter gave directions as to the burial of the writer. The letter was signed "Emily." On the floor, near the head of the bed, he found two pieces of tinfoil, with what appeared to be chocolate adhering to it. In a corner of the room, behind the dressing table, he found another piece of tinfoil, and a bottle containing water. Witness saw defendant at the General Hospital, and spoke to her, but she did not reply. He left that institution and returned to the Australian Hotel, where he made a search of the grounds, and found a flask, which appeared to have contained water, on the footpath In Neil-street. He found a piece of white paper wrapped around some tinfoil.
    A letter written by defendant to her sister was read, extracts being: "I am parting from this world, misjudged and misunderstood. I want you all to agree, and use every penny worth I possess. Wearing my things should remind you I am happy and better off, resting at last. There is an envelope with some money in it addressed to mum. Please give it to her for a Christmas present. Do not allow the Taylor family to claim one penny worth of my things. God bless you one and all. Love and good bye all. (Signed) Brokenhearted Em. P.S.-I want my watch buried with me please."
    Detective Kiernan added that in a drawer in a duchess he found a sealed letter, addressed, "Mum," which he opened, and found that it contained £6 in notes.
    At the hospital he saw defendant, and told her he was making inquiries concerning the death of Gowlett. She replied: "Yes; I understand he is dead. I wish I had gone with him, too." Witness said: "I understand you were lovers. Was there a pact between you to die together?" Defendant replied: "No; but I knew he would take his life and mine sooner or later." Witness asked: "Why did you arrive at that conclusion?" Defendant replied: "From remarks he made to me and my finding a letter in his brief bag addressed to another girl. When he returned to where I am staying, at my brother-in-law's, I accused him of writing the letter. I posted the letter I found in his brief bag after I had endorsed on the back of it that she had no right to come between me and Cyril Gowlett. Cyril was very upset when I accused him of writing to the girl, and he remarked that there was now nothing left only that they should die together. We went to Groom Park, and remained until about 11 o'clock. Cyril asked me whether I would go and stay with him at the Australian Hotel. I agreed. I left the park with Cyril, and I went back to Woods' house, where Cyril went inside. He got his suitcase, brief bag, and umbrella, and brought them with him. I remained on the footpath outside. We went to the Australian Hotel, where Cyril engaged separate rooms. After Cyril was shown his room he came to mine, and remained talking to me until about 1 o'clock. Cyril had some chocolates in a white paper packet, and he gave me some, which I ate. He also gave me some from the same packet in Groom Park earlier that night, and I felt a bitter taste from them. Cyril left the room at about 1 o'clock, and when he was leaving he had a packet containing about two or three chocolates in his hand. He also said that he would return again, but I cannot remember if he did or otherwise. Shortly after he left the room I became sick and cold, and my body and limbs began to twitch. After that I do not remember anything further until I was in hospital."
    Detective Kiernan said to defend- ant: "I am inclined to believe that you are misleading me, and I want to tell you that I do not believe what you say as regards Gowlett’s death. It was either agreed between you that you should die together, or that you knew how he came by his death." Defendant replied: "I know that my story is hard to believe, but, nevertheless, it is true." Witness said: "Do you not think that if Gowlett contemplated death he would leave a letter behind him for his mother or some other person?" Defendant re- plied: "No; he had no affection for his mother, and he would not make an explanation to anybody." Witness said: "I ascertained from your mother today that she found strychnine poison in your possession about a week ago, which you had for the purpose of poisoning yourself." Defendant said: "Yes; that is true. My mother found, and destroyed it. I promised her faithfully I would not think of taking my life in any other way; when I got that poison, Cyril and I drove to the quarry, and we were going to take it there, but we decided not to do so." He showed her a letter, the envelope of which was I addressed to the police. She looked at it, and said: "Yes; I wrote that letter yesterday afternoon, as I had a presentiment Cyril was going to kill me, and it was for that reason I wrote it."
    Defendant on another occasion said to witness: "Cyril and I agreed to die together on Monday night. For that purpose he placed strychnine in two chocolates, which he showed to mc on Monday, October 14. in the evening when he came to Woods' place. He had them inside his coat, and he returned them there again. Later that night, at about 9 o'clock, we went together to Groom Park for the purpose of taking the poisoned chocolates. After we had been talking there for some time Cyril decided if we took them in the park it might take some time to die, and we might be picked up by some person, and would not succeed in our object. He then asked me to go to the Australian Hotel, where he would book separate rooms, and that we could take poison there. I consented, and Cyril came to my room, where he remained until about 1 o'clock in the morning. He took from his pocket one of the poisoned chocolates. Cyril left the room, and I took the poisoned chocolate. Shortly afterwards I became sick and cold. Witness asked: "Where did Cyril get the poison, and what kind of poison was it?" Defendant replied: "I do not know; he did not tell me." Witness said: "From what you told me yesterday there is a lot to clear up." Defendant replied: "I want to assist you in the matter, Sergeant, and to tell you the whole truth."
    Detective O'Driscoll said to witness that Mrs. Taylor had told him that she purchased strychnine and chocolates, and gave one of them to Gowlett. Witness asked defendant if that were so, and she replied: "Yes, sergeant. I am now telling the truth. I am sorry for not telling the truth previously, but I was thinking of my mother. At the time my mother took the strychnine from me she did not get it all, as I had previously taken some of it from the packet and hid it in a tin box. It was that strychnine that I used to poison the chocolates with." On October 20, with Detective O'Driscoll, witness went to the hospital, where he saw defendant. O'Driscoll said: "We have now received information from the Government Analyst at Brisbane that Gowlett died from the effects of strychnine poison, and that you had taken strychnine poison. Do you wish to add anything further to your statement as regards that poison?" Defendant replied: "No. What I told you is correct."
    Mr. Cleary cross-examined witness at some length. He said he saw nothing to indicate that deceased had been carried and placed on the bed. When the first statement was taken from the defendant she appeared as if she had gone through an ordeal. Defendant had told him that deceased was worried, because she could not get a divorce so that they could be married. He had told her while teaching at Kingsthorpe that he threatened to take his life on two occasions. She told him that deceased frequently wrote to her from the country, and said that he could not live without her. He heard defendant say she put strychnine into the centre of a ball of chocolate, and that deceased had taken some of that strychnine and put it into a ball of chocolate he had.
    Detective Sergeant O'Driscoll save evidence of statements made to him by the defendant, and the court adjourned till tomorrow morning"

    During Emily Taylor's trial, Cyril's mother showed her animosity toward Emily a number of times stating - "She is absolutely to blame, the she devil....I do not know what to call that thing over there. She is not human.." she had told the defendant "That ends things between you and Cyril right here. God's book forbids divorced people getting married."3
