The Tenth Murder

The Whitechapel Fiend Scores a Tenth Murder.
Useless Police Precautions.
The Latest Victim, as Usual, One of the Dregs of Humanity.

London, July 17 - The community has been startled by another murder, thought to have been committed by Jack the Ripper. The body of a woman mutilated in the usual frightful manner, was found yesterday in Castle Alley, in the Whitechapel district. There is no trace of the murderer.
London, July 17 - The woman found murdered in Whitechapel early yesterday morning was about forty-five years of age and was known as Keley. She was a servant to Mrs. Smith, the keeper of the baths in Castle Alley. The body was found near a lamp post under the glare of the light. Carts of many descriptions were stacked on both sides of the alley. Just where the murder occurred there was room for a man to stand out of sight. The theory of the police is that the man and woman entered Castle Alley from Petticoat Lane and as they were passing an unoccupied building he thrust a knife into her neck below the right ear and the woman apparently fell on her face as there was mud in front of her dress. The murderer then turned her over and inflicted frightful gashes across her stomach. The police are, as usual, reticent when they know nothing.


to the spine but no part of her body was missing. Warm blood was flowing from the wound when the body was discovered. A policeman, who with the watchman of an adjacent warehouse must have been within a few yards of the spot where the murder took place when it was committed, heard no noise. Policemen have been placed at fixed points in Whitechapel since the murders preceding that of last night officers have been stationed at a point within a hundred yards of the scene of the late tragedy. An old clay pipe smeared with blood was found alongside the body. It is supposed by the police that this will furnish a clue to the murderer although it may have belonged to the victim. Several arrests of suspects have been made but they were discharged, there being no proof against them.
