Miss Judson Found In Thames

Post by Karen on Sun 31 Oct 2010 - 3:36

ANOTHER THAMES MYSTERY.

At about half-past eight on Saturday morning the Thames police found in the river, near Pimlico pier, the body of a woman, apparently between 40 and 50 years of age. She was respectably dressed in black, and looked as if she might have been the wife of an artisan. She had evidently only been in the water for a period of about three or four hours, so that the time of her death would be in the small hours of that morning. On searching one of her pockets were found pawntickets, indicating that she had pledged articles as late as seven o'clock on Friday evening. The cause of her death was undoubtedly drowning, a fact indicated by the quantity of water in the stomach, but as there were no external marks of injury on her body, it is impossible to say whether she came by her death suicidally, accidentally, or by being pushed into the water. She was a strong healthy woman, and apparently well nourished. The body was subsequently identified as that of Miss Judson, of Ebury-street, Pimlico.

EPITOME OF NEWS.

A medical examination of a leg which was recently disinterred at Guildford has revealed the fact that it is not a woman's, as was supposed, but that of a bear. It appears that a gentleman living near Guildford had a taste for the flesh of this animal, and a portion of a fine bear was sent to him from Russia, but when it was cooked he did not like it, and the limb was thrown away.

An extraordinary outrage was committed at Cardiff on Monday afternoon. A man, who has not yet been identified, but who is supposed to be well known in the neighbourhood as a hawker of laces, knocked at the door of the house 45, Adam-street, and, on its being opened, pushed his way into the house. It it thought the man knew the girl who answered the door was alone in the house, as he seized her and tied her to the stair-rails. On her calling for help, he stabbed her several times in the left arm. After locking the doors, he went upstairs and ransacked the house, stealing a silver watch and other articles. Coming downstairs he again stabbed the girl, and then hurriedly left the house. He has not yet been captured. The girl broke the stair-rails in liberating herself.
