Carrie Brown

A SHOCKING MURDER.

An Abandoned Woman Strangled And Fearfully Mutilated in a New York Hotel.

The Crime Ascribed to "Jack the Ripper" - London Police Think He is Still In England.

NEW YORK, April 24. - "Jack the Ripper," it is believed by the police, has at last come to this city. This morning, in the East River Hotel, a low resort, the body of a wretched woman was found with her abdomen terribly cut, and her bowels protruding. Her name is not known. The resort in which the body was found is one of the lowest in the city, located on the southwest corner of Catherine and Market Streets. The woman was known as one of those half-drunken creatures who hang about the low resorts of Water Street and the riverside. She came to the hotel last night in company with a man who registered as Knictor and wife. The couple were assigned to a room on the upper floor and they went to it at once. Nothing was seen or heard of them during the night. No cry or any unusual noise was heard. This morning an attendant rapped at the door of the room occupied by the couple. As there was no answer he rapped again with no better result, and finally broke the door open. A horrible sight met his gaze. On the bed lay the woman in a pool of blood. She had been dead for hours. The abdomen had been fairly ripped open with a dull, broken table knife that lay in a pool of blood, the viscera had been cut and from appearances a part was missing. The woman's head was bandaged, a cloth having been tied about the neck and face, but whether for any foul purpose or to hide any other traces of murder, the attendant did not wait to see. He gave the alarm at the office, and a messenger was hastily despatched to the police station, and the police responded at once, and, after viewing the body, the captain of the precinct in which the murder was committed lost no time in notifying the police headquarters of the horrible tragedy, and in a short while Inspector Byrnes had three of his sharpest detectives on the case. No one had seen the man since he went up the stairs with the murdered woman. He had escaped under cover of night when the bloody deed was done. A very imperfect description has been given of him to the police and they went to work with much secrecy to unearth the murderer. The little that could be learned about the man was that he was shabbily dressed and about 32 years old. At noon, detectives arrested an old crony of the dead woman, but she was too drunk to tell what she knew. She was locked up to sleep off the effects of the liquor, and the police hope she will at least give them some further clue. The house in which the murder was committed is guarded on all sides and no one is allowed to approach the upper floor. The coroner made a hasty examination of the body found. The woman had been dead several hours. He unwound the bundle of wrapping around the woman's head. First came a petticoat of common quality secured by a big knot at the back of the head. Then he slowly unwound the skirt, which was wound around several times and secured in regular fashion. The woman's chemise had been used for the same purpose. The latter was secured by one of her stockings, tied with such force as to produce strangulation. The woman's face when exposed to the light was hideous, the tongue sticking out of her mouth and swollen eyes, bulging from their sockets, nose flattened to the face, and about her neck was a circle of congealed blood. The appearance of the face convinced the coroner that the woman had first been strangled and then cut. On turning over the body they found the murderer had left his mark. The broken end of a knife had been used to make a large cross on the back of the spine. Everything about the room was in a state of disorder, although it might have been in this condition when the couple entered it. The rooms on the top floor, where the couple were, are nothing more than spaces divided off by thin board partitions. All the adjoining rooms were occupied last night, but their tenants had left when the body was discovered. The murderer must have worked swiftly and noiselessly. The housekeeper who waited on the couple when they entered the hotel last night, said the murderer wore a white turned down collar and dark brown cutaway coat. He was decidedly German in appearance, but she could not tell from his appearance how long he had been in this country. She said he resembled a sea-faring man. He did not speak a word, nodding his head and producing a ten cent piece when his companion asked for beer before proceeding to the room. The housekeeper said the murdered woman was a well known character around the neighborhood, but no one seemed to know her name or where she lived. She thought that if a woman named Mary Healy, could be found she might be able to tell who the mrudered woman was. Mary Healy, who had been locked up in a station house during the night for drunkenness, was brought forward, but was too drunk to say more than that the woman was known as "Shakespeare." In the meantime the police are scouring the city and the vessels at the docks for the murderer.

LONDON, April 24. - Great interest is taken here in the news of the "Jack the Ripper" murder in New York. Scotland Yard, yesterday, received advices of the tragedy and it was hastily forwarded to the various chiefs of the departments. The police authorities are inclined to think the absence of a gash in the throat of the New York victim indicates that the work is not that of the London ripper. Supt. Arnold states his belief that the original Jack the Ripper is still in London.

Carrie Brown (died April 24, 1891) was a New York prostitute
who was murdered and mutilated in a lodging house. She is occasionally
mentioned as an alleged victim of Jack the Ripper. Although known to use numerous aliases, a common practice in her occupation, she supposedly won her nickname of Shakespeare for her habit of quoting William Shakespeare during drinking games. She has often been erroneously referred to as Old Shakespeare in later news articles and books.

Catherine and Water Streets

The following 3-story building found at 11 Catherine Slip, adjoined the N.E. corner of Water Street and would have been quite close to the East River Hotel.

THE RIPPER IN NEW YORK.

A MURDERER SIMILAR TO THE WHITECHAPEL BUTCHERIES.

A Disreputable Woman of Gotham Cut to Pieces and Shockingly Mutilated in One of the Worst Districts - Her Suspected Murderer in Custody.

NEW YORK, April 24. - About 10:45 last night a man and woman entered East River Hotel, Catherine and Water-streets. The man's entry in the register reads "Knickloe and wife." This man was a stranger, while the woman was a dissolute character who frequented the neighborhood. They were assigned to a room on the top floor. This morning a servant endeavored to awaken the couple, but did not succeed. The door of the room was forced and on the bed was found the woman dead and disembowelled. The man had disappeared. The murderer was a man 33 years old and shabbily dressed. It is believed he is "Jack the Ripper." The woman was cut in pieces in the same manner as the Whitechapel victims. She was lying naked on the bed, the sheet and her underclothing were tied tightly about the throat and head, and the abdomen was cut and slashed in a horrible manner by a dull, broken table knife which lay on the floor near the bed. The viscera had been cut and from appearances a part was missing. The woman had evidently been strangled.
The victim has been recognized as Carrie Brown, aged 60. Nearly all the detectives in the city are engaged on the case and every effort is being made to find a man known as "Frenchy," an acquaintance of the woman. The district where the murder was committed is similar to the Whitechapel district of London. The house where the murder was committed is known as "The House of All Drinks," from the big sign of the many kinds of vile beverages that are on draught there. The place is perhaps one of the worst of its class. In the very room in which this murder was committed another low woman was found dead one morning. The bartender has also been arrested for killing a man with a sabre.
Up to midnight four men and seven women had been arrested, who are expected to throw light on the case. At 1 a.m. Adolph Kaltenberg, whose description answers to that of the murderer, was taken into custody.

This is a death announcement for Mary A. Miniter, 2 years of age of 12 Bridge Street, Brooklyn. I wonder if this is the child of Mary Miniter, the housekeeper of the East River Hotel, where Carrie Brown was murdered.
