Officer John Flaherty, of the Saint Louis Metropolitan Police Department, succumbed to injuries received six weeks earlier when he fell down a flight of stairs.

He was walking up the stairs to a home on Ashland Avenue while on patrol, when he slipped and fell. He suffered a fractured leg in the fall, which resulted in severe medical complications, causing his death. His death certificate states that the cause of death was a pulmonary embolism (blood clot) in the lung as a result of a fractured left femur. He died at 1:40PM at City Hospital.

Officer Flaherty had been with the agency for 32 years.

Officer Flaherty lived at 3968 Ashland Avenue, and was 62 years of age.

His wake was held at Arthur J. Donnelly Funeral Home located at 2039 Washington Avenue.

Internment was at Calvary Cemetery on 11/17/1923.

He is survived by his wife Mary of the home, and was the son of John and Bridget (nee Murphy) Flaherty.
