Mrs. Rooney's formerly one-hundred and sixty pound body had been reduced to just twelve pounds worth of remains. Nothing else in the kitchen was damaged by fire directly, but most of the house's interior walls and furniture were coated with a "dirty, greasy, sooty substance." It was further stated that her husband had been asphyxiated by the fumes rising from his wife's burning body while sleeping. (24 December 1885)
