Alice Walsh/Welsh

MYSTERIOUS CRIME.

Mutilated Body of a Woman of the Lowest Class.
FOUND IN A HALLWAY.

In New York - In Many Ways the Murder Resembles the Famous Whitechapel Butcheries - A Suspect Under Arrest - The Victim, Who Died Sunday, a Frequenter of the Low Dives of the City - Circumstances Surrounding the Case So Far as Known.

New York, April 21. - A murder was brought to light in Bellevue Hospital this afternoon which is suggestive in some of its details of the Whitechapel crimes in London that made "Jack the Ripper" notorious. The victim is a woman of the lowest class. Her name was Alice Welsh and she was well known in the resorts of the neighborhood of Bleecher and Thompson streets. When the autopsy was performed upon her body it was discovered that certain mutilations had been made which distinguished the Whitechapel murders, although not of so serious a character. Up to a late hour the murderer had not been arrested, but one man who is thought to have had some knowledge of the matter was held on suspicion.
The circumstances of the killing of Alice Walsh are peculiar in every aspect. About 6 o'clock this morning a woman was found in the hallway of 143 Thompson street half unconscious and bleeding. The woman was conveyed to St. Vincent's hospital. Every effort of the physicians to stop the flow of blood proved futile and the patient expired at 11:15. During that period she showed no signs of returning consciousness and died without indicating in any way how she met with the circumstances which resulted in her death.
In the course of the afternoon Dr. Phillip Hanton, the coroner's physician, made a post-mortem examination of the body and discovered the real cause of death. He found that the woman was bruised black and blue in almost every part of her body. He found also that she had been brutally mutilated with a knife or dagger and that the wounds thus resulting had started the hemorrhage, which had terminated fatally. The wounds were for the most part internal and not superficial, at least those that had been made by the knife or dagger. After much searching about the neighborhood, the police found that the woman, in company with a broad-shouldered man, who looked like an Italian, a woman known as "Gimpy" Amdana, a girl called "Teenie" and another man, had spent a portion of the early morning hours in the saloon of E.N. Garland, at 108 West Houston street.
While in town she became greatly intoxicated and she and her tall companion quarrelled. They left there, so far as could be ascertained, at about 4 o'clock a.m. What happened to her or where she went during the intervening two hours cannot at present be told. It is surmised that the man who killed her is the Italian stranger in whose company she was in Garland's saloon.

One of the most pathetic and horrible incidents of recent occurrence was the murder of Alice Walsh. Slashed and butchered by some fiendish ripper, she was taken for a "common drunk" while actually bleeding to death, and was left to suffer for hours in the hallway of a New York tenement house. The atrocious nature of the crime suggests that another "Jack the Ripper" may have started on a murderous crusade against metropolitan outcasts.
