Yet another crime in Whitechapel

The last victim of the crime in Whitechapel has been positively identified by her own father, a poor man, who has been living for eight years in a workhouse in the neighborhood of his daughter, despite the poor life she led, she was to visit all day Sunday, handing him money for his pocket the pennies that she had. The landlady of which Frances Coles - the name of the victim - took cottage, when she had the 40 cents for rent, sometimes 60 cents with sheets on the bed, having made important statements on the subject of a man having the appearance of a sailor who had come on Thursday evening while in the victim, police, soon enough, however, found that individual during the day Saturday and proceeded to detain him. He's called Thomas Sadler, a driver aboard a steamer which sails the Levant, and, by curious coincidence, he was not in London with his boat for seventeen months, the last crime of Whitechapel dating from eighteen months. It seems that Sadler and Frances frequented during his stay in the port of London. Come together while the landlady on Wednesday, they returned on Thursday, both in a declared state of intoxication, and were left the same evening around ten o'clock. At eleven o'clock, Sadler had returned covered with blood, saying he had been attacked and leaving the prowlers who had mistreated and stole from him, and he complained bitterly of Frances who had not defended him. He said that during the day he paid 1s 8d (2 fr.) for a new hat for Frances, which explains the two hats of Frances' found at the crime scene. On Thursday night, eleven o'clock, Sadler had no money to pay for his night, he was placed out the door. He came again about three o'clock in the morning, that is to say forty-five minutes after the crime, and asked if we had not seen Frances. He was very against the prowlers who had stolen, and accused Frances, on which he had given a shilling, having drunk the money. He offered the landlady a term of one hundred francs, the balance of his pay and who was in touch the next day, as security for the price of his bed, but as the man was drunk and very noisy, the offer was rejected and he was put out the door. He was found the next morning in hospital, for 9 hours, where he was going to heal the wounds he had received on the head and hands in the fight with the rangers, and was arrested on Saturday at noon at the Phoenix public house, from where they brought him to the police station. Put in the presence of the corpse, he did not hesitate one minute to recognize her, but protested his complete innocence. In explaining the use of his time, he confirmed the information from the landlady and all other indications have been recognized as correct. Sadler was wearing heavy shoes which betrays, by the noise they made, any sudden flight. The most serious charge against him was the blood that stained his clothes, but as the presence of this blood was recorded unmistakably the evening of the crime at 11 o'clock, it is evident that the blood, being three hours before the crime, could'nt come from the killing. If this dispute had not been made, Sadler would run the greatest risk, such as justice would have run him to condemn an innocent man, for we must admit that Sadler's relationship with the victim and other circumstances were well done to mislead the jury the most conscientious. In this condition, Sadler has not yet been released, but this does not delay. Police have no clues about the true murderer.
