The Haunted Oak

Post by Karen on Mon 28 Mar 2011 - 1:56

MYSTERY OF A HAUNTED OAK.

Young Girl Suffocated and Hidden in a Lonely Wood.
(FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.)

NEW YORK, Sunday Night. - A murder of a most mysterious and horrible character, just such a crime as that which formed the theme of the shuddering tale of Edgar Allan Poe's "Mystery of Marie Rojet," has just been discovered in a lonely wooded spot in the most northern part of the city.
Under a venerable oak, that bore the reputation of being haunted, was found the body of a girl of twenty-one. It was evident that she had been the victim of an outrage committed in another part of the city; that she had been there smothered, and the body had been conveyed secretly to the woods.
The crime was evidently that of a degenerate similar to the wretch who committed the "Jack the Ripper" murders years ago in London. He must have been a man of great strength, for the woman had evidently not been drugged, and must have been held down by main force when she was suffocated.
The murdered woman has been identified as the daughter of an ice-dealer named Pheiffer, but the police are at a loss to guess the personality of her slayer.
