Young woman aged approx. 24 years of age found mutilated in Millers Court. Seen earlier accompanying a man into house. Man described as foreign looking about 5ft 7 ins in height with a moustache: Another man seen earlier lurking by a lamppost opposite. Man who discovers body runs into McCarthy's shop. Established that young woman had been, at one time, in domestic service. Coroner's inquest reports she had eaten a meal of fish and potatoes shortly before she was murdered."

This all sounds terribly familiar doesn't it? The date of the crime described above? - July 2nd 1909 .

Let's return now to Millers Court and examine another date - February 1892
