Annie Austin

LIKE THE "RIPPER'S" WORK.

A Most Revolting Murder in Whitechapel in London.

A sensational murder and case of mutilation occurred in a low lodging house in Dorset Street, Whitechapel, London, close to the scene of the "Jack the Ripper" murders of 1888. The victim was a woman named Annie Austin, aged 28. The murderer escaped. The police were notified of the crime Tuesday. The wounds on the lower part of the body of the victim were too revolting for description. The police are apprehensive of further outrages. A panic has been created in the neighborhood.

The Inquest of Austin

Post by Karen on Fri 25 Mar 2011 - 6:39

THE EAST END TRAGEDIES.

RESUMED INQUEST IN THE SPITALFIELDS LODGING-HOUSE CASE.

The coroner's inquest on Annie Austin, the woman who was fatally stabbed on May 25 in a lodging-house at 35, Dorset-street, was resumed in the Stepney Coroner's Court yesterday.
The man William Austin, husband of the unfortunate woman, who is in custody on suspicion, was brought to the court from Holloway. He appeared to feel his position acutely.
Arthur Goss, a London Hospital porter, gave evidence as to the arrival of the woman at the hospital.
She was accompanied by a man, Daniel Sullivan, who said, "This is a stabbing case." Goss told Sullivan to stay, but he left the hospital while the woman was being taken to a ward.
Mary Hendry, of Church-row, Battersea, told the coroner that on May 23 the man Austin came to her house and asked her if she would take care of his little girl, as he had a day's work. He had the girl with him, and she consented.
The same evening he came back and asked her if she would take the child off his hands altogether. He said his wife was a dreadful woman, and he could not live with her, so there was nowhere for the girl to go. Witness said she would consult her husband, and Austin went away. She saw him again on Monday in the morning, and at about six in the evening, but he never mentioned his wife again nor spoke of her being at Spitalfields.
Several witnesses spoke to seeing Austin about Battersea on the day before the murder, and Richard Holden, a stall-keeper, deposed to his having entered the steamboat-yard the day after the murder at about five in the morning. He looked dusty, as if he had been sleeping out, and there were straws on his coat. He asked for a cup of water, which was given him.
Medical evidence was given by Dr. Hewett, the Divisional surgeon, who stated that the wounds on the woman's body must have been deliberately inflicted with some sharp instrument. The first wound proved fatal.
The inquiry was again adjourned.

The second lodging-house tragedy in the same district was declared by a coroner's jury yesterday to be a misadventure.
On Sunday morning Thomas Norman, a Norwich shoemaker, died in the kitchen of a common lodging-house in Spitalfields.
A fellow-lodger, named James Collins, a market porter, who stands charged with causing Norman's death, was in court.
After much contradictory evidence, one witness stating that Collins struck Norman, and another that the blow was not deliberate, the accused man elected to make a statement.
Norman, he said, persisted in taking potatoes from his plate. He pushed Norman, and he fell backwards.
Dr. Percy Goodman said the blow at the back of the man's head must have been of a "sledge-hammer" description.

The Verdict

Post by Karen on Fri 25 Mar 2011 - 7:37

THE DORSET-STREET MURDER.

A verdict of "Wilful Murder against some person or persons unknown" was returned at the inquest yesterday regarding the death of Annie Austin, who was fatally stabbed in a Dorset-street lodging-house.
Mr. Wynne Baxter, the coroner, severely criticised the conduct of the witnesses from the lodging-house.
There was no doubt, he said, that a number of them had perjured themselves, and it was quite possible that the Public Prosecutor would take action.
Throughout the whole case, he added, the police had laboured at great disadvantage.
There was a hostile demonstration from the public as the witnesses entered and left the court.

James Collins, the market porter charged with causing the death of Thomas Norman in a lodging-house in Heneage-street, Spitalfields, was yesterday committed for trial at the Central Criminal Court.

Annie's Last Statements

Post by Karen on Sat 4 Jun 2011 - 1:09

ANOTHER EAST END HORROR.

What has been called "Another Whitechapel Murder" has created an unpleasant sensation in London by reason of its resemblance in some of its features to the horrible and mysterious series of crimes which terrified London some thirteen years ago. It was at once suggested that the madman who is known as "Jack the Ripper" was again at large, and that this was his work. It is true that the scene of the crime was a common lodging-house, and not the open street as in the case of most if not all of the "Ripper" murders; but the victim was of the same class, and the crime appeared to be similarily motiveless. Now, however, the woman's husband has been arrested on suspicion, though from the statement said to have been made by the victim before she died it seems impossible that he can be guilty. The murder really took place not in Whitechapel, but in Spitalfields, and Whitechapel is again protesting against the unsavoury reputation unjustly conferred upon it. None, or at most one of the "Ripper" murders took place in Whitechapel. One was within the City boundary and most of the others were in Bethnal Green.
