Rewards Offered For Missing Women

Post by Karen on Tue 30 Mar 2010 - 10:07

A reward has been offered by the magistrate of Arnheim for the discovery of the body of Mrs. De Jong, the young Englishwoman who recently disappeared in Holland after her marriage with the Dutchman De Jong, now in custody. Another reward is offered by the Echo, of Amsterdam, for the discovery of the body of the other missing woman, Schmitz. The police are still actively prosecuting their investigations, but up to the present no fresh light has been thrown on the mystery. De Jong, on being examined, declined to give any information as to what had become of the two women, and refused to state his whereabouts either on the 7th or 8th of July, or on the 30th and 31st of August, about which dates the two women respectively disappeared. The editor of a local paper states that some eight weeks ago he received a visit from a woman whom he now believes to be the missing Englishwoman, Miss Juett. He adds that his visitor brought with her some drawings of little value, probably specimens of her own art, which she was anxious to sell, it being her intention to employ the proceeds in paying her passage to America. The editor did not purchase any of the drawings. He does not recollect the exact date of the visit. A dutch correspondent states that the preliminary examination of De Jong by the magistrates at Arnheim throws little light on the mystery. A gendarme at Arnheim saw persons believed to be De Jong and the missing lady outside an inn on 4th July, and a few minutes later they had disappeared, having apparently entered the forest. De Jong's brother and sister-in-law were also examined, but said nothing calculated to clear up the mystery.
