Another Lovely Necklace

Post by Karen on Sat 27 Feb 2010 - 21:08

Here is an article which explains that Catherine Eddowes was also given a lovely necklace. Her entrails (intestines) were twisted in a gaping wound around the neck. Only the murderer could have placed them in this manner. Bowels do not recoil to the extent that they then wrap themselves around a victim's neck. If any person believes that this "recoiling" is a phenomenon caused by protrusion of the bowel from the site of incision, really needs their head examined (TM).



LONDON, September 30th. - This morning the whole city was again startled by the news that two more murders had been added to the list of mysterious crimes that have been committed in Whitechapel. At an early hour it was known that another woman had been murdered and the report was that there was still another victim. The two victims, as in former cases, were dissolute women of the poor class. That the motive of the murderer or murderers was not robbery is shown by the fact that no attempt was made to despoil the bodies. The first murder occurred in a narrow street at an early hour this morning beneath the windows of the Foreigners Socialist Club. A concert was in progress and many members of the club were present, but no sound was heard. The same process had been followed as in the other cases. A club man on entering the court stumbled over a body which was lying two yards from the street. A stream of blood was flowing from the body. The murderer had evidently been disturbed before he had time to mutilate the victim. The second murder was committed three-quarters of an hour later, where policemen patrol the square every ten minutes. The body of the unfortunate had been disemboweled, the throat cut and the nose severed. The heart and lungs had been thrown aside, and the entrails were twisted in a gaping wound around the neck.
The incisions show rough dexterity. The work of dissection was evidently done with the utmost haste. Pending a report of the doctors it is not known whether or not a portion of the viscera was taken away. The doctors, after a hasty examination of the body, said they thought it must have taken about five minutes to complete the work of the murderer, who then had plenty time to escape the patrol. Mitre Square, the scene of the second murder, is a thoroughfare. Many people pass through the Square early on Sunday morning on their way to prepare for market in the notorious Petticoat lane. The publicity of the place adds to the daringness of the crime.
The police, who have been severely criticized in connection with the Whitechapel murders, are paralyzed by these latest crimes. As soon as the news was received at police headquarters, a messenger was despatched for Sir Charles Warren, Chief Commissioner of Police. He was called out of bed, and at once visited the scene of the murders. The inhabitants of Whitechapel are dismayed. The vigilance committees which were formed after the first crimes were committed, had relaxed their efforts to capture the murderer. At several meetings held in Whitechapel tonight it was resolved to resume the work of patrolling the streets in the district in which the murders have occurred.
Dr. Blackwell, who was called to view the remains of the Berner-street victim gave it as his opinion the same man, evidently a maniac, had committed both murders..
The Berner-street victim had been dragged back by a handkerchief worn around the throat. The inquest will be held on Monday. The inquest on the Mitre Square victim will probably be held on Tuesday.
The Berner-street victim was Elizabeth Stride, a native of Stockholm. She resided in a common lodging-house, near where the murder was committed. The name of the other is not known.
In consequence of a refusal of Home Secretary Matthews to offer a reward for the arrest of the Whitechapel murderer, the people of the East End have requested the Queen herself to authorize the offering of a reward.
The Daily Telegraph, commenting on the Whitechapel murders, says: "If the Home Secretary fails to do his duty, Lord Salisbury will have to dismiss a Minister who has not good sense enough to resign."
