THE VICTIM OF LONDON'S LATEST BUTCHERY IDENTIFIED
London, June 25.
The identity of the woman whose body was recently taken piecemeal out of the Thames has been established, several persons having recognized her by the clothing in which the parts of her body were wrapped and by peculiar scars upon the arms. She was Elizabeth Jackson, a frequenter of the common lodging houses in Chelsea and virtually a prostitute. She was known to be alive on May 31. The identification the theory that she was another victim of Jack the Ripper.
