    Old Man Found Dead in Bathroom
    Michael John Wecker (84), who was last seen by neighbours on Tuesday morning, was found dead yesterday in the bathroom of his home at Elliott Street, off Park Road, Woolloongabba. Wecker, who had lived by himself for some years, had been in indifferent health for several months. Earlier in the week he had complained to neighbours of a severe pain around his heart, and had declared his intention of getting medical aid. It was not until yesterday that residents in the vicinity recalled that the old man had not been seen about for a day or two. Becoming anxious they notified Mr. H. Cavell, an ambulance bearer, who lives in the same street. Mr. Cavell found Wecker dead on the floor of the bathroom. Death had apparently taken place about two days previously. Wecker, who was of German descent, had resided in the district for about 70 years. He was a married man with a family of 15 children. Of the family seven are living, the oldest being 60 years of age."14,15
