Cabin Boy Murdered, Cook Arrested

Post by Karen on Sun 10 Jul 2011 - 19:48

MURDER AT THURSDAY ISLAND.
A HORRIBLE CRIME.

A RESEMBLANCE TO THE WHITECHAPEL MURDERS.
[BY TELEGRAPH.]
(FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.)

BRISBANE, May 25.

During Monday night, a cabin boy of the schooner Hetty Belle, at Thursday Island, was murdered. Nothing occurred during the evening to arouse suspicion, and nothing was known of the murder until the following morning, when the lad was missed. Suspicion fell upon the cook of the vessel, who was arrested. On his bunk being searched a horrible discovery was made, the details of which it is impossible to particularise. A portion of the missing lad's body was found. The tragedy in some respects resembles the notorious Whitechapel murders. A further search has also brought to light the bloodstained clothes belonging to the accused man.
