Artwork Description

On the morning of April 7th 1872 Senior Constable Ritchie visited the hut of French gold miner and fisherman Jean Marie Haigand after reports he had been behaving erratically. The hut, remotely located on the banks of the Turon River, was open but not occupied. Tracks crossing the river were located, and on the far side was discovered Haigand's neatly folded clothes and tracks leading back towards the hut. Further up a steep hill was located the mans shoes carefully placed by the track. Ten feet away from this spot the body of Haigand was found lying naked, prone and face down in the middle of the track.

There were no visible signs of trauma and the official medical report in Haigand's death cited the cause as 'exposure caused by temporary insanity'.
