The  Shelbyville  Republican
February 1, 1907
(From Tuesday's Daily)
          Dr. Oral H. McDonald,  coroner of Shelby county, has filed his verdicts in the cases of  Miss Daisy Adams  and  William Warner,  both of whom were killed in this county recently.
          In his verdict regarding the death of Miss Adams, who was killed by the falling of a nelectric[sic] light wire belonging to the Water & Light Company a few evenings ago, while she was going to one of the revival services, he holds that the Water & Light Company was blameless and that her death was an accident.  Notwithstanding this verdict, it is the general impression that a suit will be filed by the young lady's parents against the company for damages.
          His verdict in the William Warner case is to the eect[sic] that Warner's death was the result of injuries caused by being run over by coal car No. 36,446 in a work train belonging to the Big Four Railroad Company, east of town.
