Decatur Daily Despatch
Illinois, U.S.A.
11 September 1889

ANOTHER WHITECHAPEL MURDER

Special to Decatur Despatch

London, Sept. 10.
At 5:30 o'clock this morning the dead body of a fallen woman was found lying at the corner of a railway arch on Cable street, Whitechapel. An examination of the remains shows that the head and arms had been cut off and the stomach ripped open, the intestines lying on the ground. There was no blood on the ground where the body was found, neither was there any blood on the body. From this it is evident that the murder was committed in some other place and that the body was subsequently deposited under the railway arch.

Although the murder is generally spoken of as the work of the mysterious Jack the Ripper, a close examination of all the facts leads to the conclusion that this murder is not one of the Ripper's. Police and medical men familiar with the details of the recent London horrors of this class say that this last murders must be classified with those known as Embankment murders, of which there have now been four in all including the one in which the headless body of the victim was recently discovered in Chelsea, and of which the head has never been found.
