Echo
London, U.K.
24 September 1888

"Leather Apron's" actions for libel are not likely to be confined to the two London newspapers which dubbed him a lunatic and a murderer. A New York paper will also probably be included in the list of those who have made the accusations.


Mr. Wynne E. Baxter, the Coroner who has presided over the Whitechapel inquests, has not been very long a Middlesex Coroner, but he had the advantage of long experience as a Coroner of Sussex before he was elected by the Middlesex freeholders.


ANOTHER LONDON MYSTERY?
STRANGE DISCOVERY

Last evening the attention of Police constable 457D was called to a brown paper parcel lying behind some railings at the corner of Devonshire street and Great Portland street. On pulling open one corner he noticed it contained some underclothing, apparently blood stains upon it. He thereupon conveyed it to the Tottenham Court road Police station, where it was opened by the inspector on duty, who found the contents to consist of a drab flannel shirt, a pair of men's drab pants, a pair of cuffs, and a collar. The two first named articles were completely saturated with blood, but the collar and cuffs were only slightly splashed. The Divisional Surgeon was sent for, and gave it as his opinion that the blood was human. Information was at once forwarded to the Chief Office, Scotland yard, and the discovery was circulated through all the divisions of police in the Metropolis for elucidation.
