Suicide After Annie's Murder

Post by Karen on Tue 2 Mar 2010 - 8:39


The particulars of a sad case of suicide which took place at No. 65, Hanbury-street, Spitalfields, a house a few doors away from the spot where the unfortunate woman Annie Chapman was murdered, reached Dr. Macdonald, the coroner for North-east Middlesex, on October 11. It appeared that the top floor of that address is occupied by a silk weaver named Sodeaux, his wife, and a child, aged eight years. For some time past Mrs. Sodeaux had been depressed, and since the perpetration of the horrible murders in the district during the past few weeks she has been greatly agitated. On Sunday she was found to have a razor in her possession, and it was taken from her, as it was thought she meditated suicide. The following day she appeared to be more cheerful, and was left alone with her child. Yesterday, however, she left her room, saying she was going on an errand, but when some time elapsed, and she did not return, her daughter went in search of her, and was horrified to find her hanging with a rope round her neck to the stair banisters. The child ran for assistance but no one would go up to the body, and eventually the police were called in and the body cut down. Life was then extinct, but as the body was quite warm, it is believed that had assistance been rendered immediately on the discovery being made the woman's life might have been saved.
