Decapitated Child Found in Brixton Cellar

Post by Karen on Mon 30 May 2011 - 20:42

A BRIXTON MYSTERY.
DECAPITATED BODY IN A CELLAR.

POLICE SUSPECT A MURDER.

Brixton now has its mystery, and suspicion already associates with it a terrible murder. These are the facts already to hand: - It appears that on Monday afternoon last Mrs. Mary Ann Forward, the wife of Mr. John Forward, who occupies the house situated at 47, St. James's-road, Brixton, was getting some coals out of a cupboard which is under the stairs at the end of the passage, when she discovered a hole in the boarding, and, placing her hand through the aperture for the purpose of ascertaining if any of the coals had fallen through, she drew forth a brown paper parcel, which was found to contain the body of a male child, with the exception of the head, which had been cut off close to the shoulders. The body was dressed in a white cotton nightgown, the sleeves of which were turned up to the elbow, the whole of which was covered with bloodstains. The police were at once communicated with, and the Divisional surgeon, Dr. Knight, of 410, Brixton-road, was then called. That gentleman states that he believes the deceased was medically attended. Police-constable Morrison 9 W R., who took the boards up, has sifted all the dust which was found in the cupboard, but up to the present time has failed to discover the head, the whereabouts of which is a mystery. The body is at present in the hands of the Coroner's officer, who has it at his private residence, there being no mortuary in Brixton. Detective-sergeant Clark, of the Criminal Investigation Department, is making inquiries into the extraordinary affair.
