|Palais de Danse - Hammersmith|
Shortly after receiving a notice cancelling his appointment as manager for a circuit of suburban movie houses, Kelly entered Taylor's London flat at 8 St. James Street, Piccadilly, W., on December 17, 1920. In the presence of her maid, he attempted to strangle his former lover to death on her bed. The maid broke his grip, but Kelly fired a fatal shot into the fleeing Taylor before shooting himself in the head. Among items found on Kelly's body were a quantity of cocaine and notes to Babs in which he wrote: "Wish we could have fallen in love with each other as we have gotten along splendidly."
