Daily Gleaner (Jamaica)
1 January 1889

Brutal Murder in St. Catherine.

With reference to the brutal murder reported in yesterday’s Gleaner as having taken place in St. Catherine, we have since learned that a young man named William Ranger was arrested at 12 o’clock on Sunday night at the Vere Race Course, as being the perpetrator of the brutal tragedy, and was lodged in the Spanish Town County gaol at 3 o’clock on Monday morning, pending the Magisterial investigation. The girl’s name is Letitia Crawford. Ranger who is about 24 years of age, cannot give any reasons for the committal of the act, as he and the girl had been very friendly up to the time she was murdered.
