THE WHITECHAPEL MYSTERY.
THE POLICEMAN'S STATEMENT.
ANOTHER PARADE TO BE HELD.

The Press Association learns that up to the present all attempts on the part of the police to dispel the mystery surrounding the death of the woman Turner, who was found in the George-yard, Whitechapel, under circumstances previously reported, have failed. Inquiries have brought to light the fact that on the night preceding the murder, the deceased and a woman giving the name of Connolly were in company with two soldiers, and that something was said as to deceased accompanying one of the men to the George-yard. As bearing on this incident the statement of Police-constable Barrett, 226 H, is important. That officer was on duty in the neighbourhood of the tragedy, and he noticed a soldier loitering. Barrett remarked that it was quite time he was in barracks, and the soldier replied that he was waiting for a comrade who had accompanied a woman to one of the buildings close at hand. At a parade of soldiers which took place at the Tower, yesterday, Barrett identified the man whom he had accosted as described, but the soldier refused to give any account of himself. A parade will take place at Wellington Barracks, probably to-morrow, and Barrett will then be accompanied by the woman Connolly. The police state that the mortal wound [..] the woman received in the left breast p[..] the appearance of havidg (sic) been inflicted by a bayonet, whereas the other wounds were [..] flesh wounds. The deceased, who had been [known] under the name of Martha Turner, is said [to have] lived apart from her husband for some years, [..] have latterly got her living as a hawker. This [..]ing the police received from a man at Guildford a letter of inquiry. The man gives the name of Thomas Hunt, and states that illness had prevented his coming to ascertain if the woman Turner was his own wife.
