15 August 1888

It appears that the police have not yet obtained a clue to the solution of the death of the woman Turner, who was found stabbed to death on a landing in a house in George yard, Whitechapel. It is stated that on the night preceding the murder the deceased and a woman named Connolly were in company with two soldiers, and that something was said as to the deceased accompanying one of the men to George yard. Police Constable Barrett was on duty in the neighbourhood of George yard at about two o'clock on the morning of the tragedy. He noticed a soldier loitering, and remarked that it was quite time he was in barracks, when 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, Barrett identified the man whom he had accosted, but the soldier refused to give any account of himself. A parade will take place at Wellington Barracks probably today, and Barrett will then be accompanied by the woman Connolly. The police state that the mortal wound received in the left breast presented the appearance of having been inflicted by a bayonet, where as the other wounds were inflicted with a knife. The deceased, who had been known under the name of Martha Turner, is said to have lived apart from her husband for some years and to have lately got her living as a hawker. Yesterday the police received from a man at Guildford a letter of inquiry. The man gives the name of Thomas Hunt, and states that illness prevented his coming to ascertain if the woman Turner was his wife.
