Death of Mrs. Loraine Gould.
Mrs. Loraine Gould of Rutland,recently convicted of the crime of
malpractice, and who has since been confined at the house of
correction, awaiting sentence, died at that institution Friday
evening from paralysis, although she was also suffering from cancer.
It will be remembered that Mrs. Gould's alleged criminal operation
caused the death of Miss Eva Shaw, a beautiful California girl who
had lived a year or two in Fair Haven. The feeling against H.H.Pitkin,
a young business man of Fair Haven, charged with being Mrs. Gould's
accomplice, was so strong that his trail was postponed until next March.
