Maybrick Murderer Confesses

Post by Karen on Mon 26 Jul 2010 - 2:02

STEAD TO THE RESCUE.

The Sensational Editor Takes up Mrs. Maybrick's Cause.

A London cable says: In the next issue of the Review of Reviews, Mr. Stead, its editor, will have an article headed, "Ought Mrs. Maybrick to be Tortured to Death?" in which he vigorously and at great length reopens the whole case of the unfortunate American woman who is now undergoing a sentence of life imprisonment in Woking prison for the alleged poisoning of her husband. Mr. Stead says that both he and Sir Charles Russell, the Attorney-General, have received from South Africa copies of the death bed confession of Harry Wilson, who declared that he, with a woman whose name is not given, placed arsenic in the medicine that was administered to Mr. Maybrick during his last illness. Mr. Stead investigated the matter and declares that he attaches weight to the confession, but, he adds, even if it were valueless, it will be of service in directing attention to the travesty of Justice which has exposed Great Britain to serious remonstrances from the United States, and which is not unlikely to become a subject of diplomatic remonstrances. Mr. Stead makes a strong appeal for the release of Mrs. Maybrick before Christmas. Her condition is such, he says, that she will speedily die if she is not released. If Mr. Herbert Asquith, the Home Secretary, will not hear the case, then Lord Rosebery, the Foreign Minister, and Mr. Gladstone must.
