Railway Arch Torso

Post by Karen on Sat 25 Sep 2010 - 9:48



The Horribly Mutilated Remains Found Under a Railway Arch in Whitechapel This Morning - Three Sailors Arrested and Released.

LONDON, Sept. 10. - At 5:30 o'clock this morning a policeman found the body of a fallen woman lying at the corner of a railway arch on Cable street, Whitechapel. An examination of the remains showed that the head and arms had been cut off and carried away, and the stomach ripped open, the intestines lying on the ground. A cordon of police instantly surrounded the spot, but no arrests have up to this hour (8 a.m.) been made.
Policemen on duty last night say they saw nothing suspicious. The physicians who examined the body state that in their opinion the murder and mutilation occupied nearly an hour. It is surmised that the murderer carried off the head and arms in a bag.
The murder is the worst of the whole series of Whitechapel murders. The manner in which the limbs had been severed from the body shows that the murderer was possessed of some surgical skill. The woman was about 30 years old. Her clothing was shabby and she was evidently a spirit drinker.
The remains have not been identified. The most intense excitement again prevails in Whitechapel.
Noon - Later details show that there was no blood on the ground where the body was found, neither was there any blood on the body. From this it is evident that the murder was committed in some other place and that the body was subsequently deposited under the railway arch. The trunk was nude. A rent and bloody chemise was found lying near the body. The arms were intact, but the legs were missing. It is believed that the woman had been dead for two days.
Three sailors who were sleeping under the arch next to the one under which the body was found were taken into custody by the police. They convinced the authorities, however, that they had seen or heard nothing of a suspicious nature, and they were discharged.
