The Lea Mystery

THE LEA MYSTERY.
RESUMED INQUEST.

Mr. Wynne E. Baxter resumed the inquiry, today, at the Manor Rooms, Hackney, respecting the death of Elizabeth Ann Smith, aged 25, a machinist, lately living at 33, Hemsworth-street, Hoxton, whose body was found in the River Lea on Friday, the 27th ult. - Detective-Inspector Joseph Helston deposed that on the morning of the 27th he made inquiries about the missing girl. He found the man Anthony, and, after warning him, took down his statement.

ANTHONY'S ACCOUNT OF THE AFFAIR.

He said: - "On Saturday night, at five minutes to twelve, I was in Lea-bridge-road, and saw two men running away towards Clapton. I heard they had stolen a purse from a girl who was standing close by. I, with Joseph Cantor, Ned Murphy, and others, ran after them. I stopped one of them. We had a struggle. He was searched, and we let him go. I walked back to the girl, and with her walked on to the Lea-bridge-road, down Chatsworth-road, across the Marsh by the side of the fields, and by the back of the houses. We crossed Strong's-bridge, and went along the towing-path to the waterwork's gate. I then saw Charlie Cantor coming along the path. I went away and left her standing against the wall. I went along the path over Pond-lane-bridge and across the fields down home. Charlie Cantor was talking to her when I left her. After I came back into Lea-bridge-road I saw George Judd and Mickey Cornwall. I said good night to them, and went home. I got home about five minutes to one." Witness then detained him for inquiries.
