Evening Express (Jamaica)
31 December 1888

Murder at Bushy Park.

The body of the unfortunate woman had not been identified up to the time of my sending this. A photograph of it has been taken by Dr. Neish. She is supposed to have been a native of Clarendon. The body was found horribly mutilated. I will send further particulars as soon as I can.

Later.—A drayman by the name of Benjamin Burger has been apprehended on suspicion of being the murderer, and has been lodged in the Middlesex and Surrey County Jail. He confessed to having murdered the woman.

The body of the murdered woman has been identified by a relative. Great excitement prevails, but the cause of this atrocious act has not yet transpired.


(in the same paper, from the same column, only a few inches below…)

A woman was recently found strangled in a London Street, she is supposed to be another victim of the Whitechapel murderer and a new system of murder been adopted in lieu of the former ultra revolting method.
