Self-Styled Ripper Drowns Himself

Post by Karen on Wed 13 Mar 2013 - 16:03

EXTRAORDINARY AFFAIR AT MONMOUTH.
A Self-styled "Jack the Ripper."

DROWNS HIMSELF TO ESCAPE CAPTURE.

It is stated that on Thursday afternoon a stranger, apparently a tramp, entered the house of a florist named Woodhouse, at Monmouth, and said he was "Jack the Ripper." Mrs. Woodhouse cried out for help and a gentleman named Pyrce, who was passing, came to her assistance, and the man made off. A few minutes afterwards he went to the house of Colonel Colls, and acted in a similar way to the servants in the kitchen. Mr. Pryce followed him, and was in time to see Colonel Colls forcibly eject him from the house. The would-be "Ripper" then took to the field adjoining the river Wye, followed by Mr. Pryce and a baker named Clement. His pursuers were closing with him as he approached the river bank, when, to their horror, the unfortunate man jumped in, and sank almost immediately. Mr. Pryce says the man was sober, of middle height, and about 40 years of age. The body was not recovered when the message was sent.
