25 August 1888
A discovery of human remains was made at the Guildford Railway Station early yesterday morning. A man who was sweeping the station discovered a parcel containing a human foot and leg, which he at once conveyed to the police. The parcel apparently had been either thrown out of a passing train, or from a bridge which passes over the railway close to where it was found. The remains have been examined by Mr. H.S. Tayler, the police surgeon, who states that they consist of a right foot and a portion of a leg, the flesh hanging therefrom having been boiled. Some of the flesh and the toe nails had evidently been boiled away.
