Child Victim Of 1887

Post by Karen on Sat 13 Nov 2010 - 10:39

HORRIBLE DISCOVERY AT KENTISH-TOWN.

CHILD MURDERED AND CUT INTO PIECES.

This morning Inspector Charles Dodd, of the Y Division, with a number of other officers of the Criminal Investigation Department, are busily engaged in endeavouring to trace out the particulars of the murder of a child that has taken place at Kentish-town. After the murder, it is said, the body was cut up in pieces. It appears that yesterday someone went into the school-grounds in Leighton-grove, to look at the school-house, which is now empty. He was horrified to see, lying inside the gateway, the trunk of the body of a child. A further examination having been made, it was found that over one of the garden walls adjoining there were other portions of the body. A police-constable of the Y Division was at once called, and in the garden of the house in Montpellier-road there were no less than five pieces, comprising the feet, hands, legs, and head of a child. These and the trunk were placed together, and taken to the Kentish-town Police-station Kentish-town-road. Dr. Dennis Sidney Downes, the divisional surgeon, was called, and found that the body was that of a fully developed male child. From the appearances it was evident that death had occurred some days before, but that the cause of death it would be impossible to state without making a post-mortem examination. By directions of Dr. Downes, the remains of the deceased, which had been separated in a most clumsy manner, were removed to the St. Pancras Mortuary, Cambridge-street, there to await an inquest.
