A Lea Mystery

Post by Karen on Sat 30 Jul 2011 - 2:07

A LEA MYSTERY.

Mr. Wynne Baxter held an inquest at Hackney on Thursday on the body of a man unknown. A lighterman named Peter Ross said on Sunday he was in charge of a boat, on the River Lea, when he saw the body of the deceased floating in the water. The body was fully dressed with the exception of the hat. A constable stated the age of deceased was about 40 years, and he had the appearance of being a labouring man. A full description of the finding of deceased had been circulated. Deceased had black whiskers, and was wearing a black coat, cord trowsers, and lace-up boots, with no socks on. A sum of 1s. 5-1/2d. was found on the body, a blue and white check handkerchief, and a soldier's havresack. There was a bruise on the right eye. Inspector Delahaye, having given evidence, in which he said the body had been in the water about three weeks, the inquiry was adjourned.
