April A-Z Challenge – O is for Olivia
On a wet wintry day in 1930, Olivia went out horse riding at about 4pm. When she didn’t return by evening, her family went out searching for her. Her horse was found tethered to a tree on the Kyneton Road, and her hat and coat were discovered on the bank of the Wild Duck Creek, near a deep pool. Her two brother’s went into the water and found her body. Family members told the inquest that Olivia had been depressed of late.
The Corner gave his finding of death by drowning. He said there was insufficient evidence to show how Olivia came to be in the water.
