10 November 1888
London, November 9.
The murder fiend has added another to his list of victims. At 11 o'clock this morning the body of a woman cut into pieces was discovered in a house in Dorsey (sic) street, Spitalfields. The police are endeavoring to track the murderer with the aid of bloodhounds. The remains were mutilated in the same horrible manner as were those of the woman murdered in White Chapel.
The victim, like all the others, was a prostitute. She was married and her husband was a porter. They had lived together at intervals. Her name is believed to have been Lizzie Fisher, but to most of the habitués of the haunts she visited she was known as Mary Jane. She had a room in the house where she was murdered. She carried a latch key, and no one knows at what hour she entered the house last night, and probably no one saw the man who accompanied her. He might easily have left the house at any time between 1 and 6 o'clock this morning without attracting attention.
The doctors who have examined the remains refuse to make any statement until the inquest is held. Three bloodhounds belonging to private citizens were taken to the place where the body lies and placed on the scent of the murderer, but they were unable to keep it for any great distance, and all hope of running the assassin down with their assistance will have to be abandoned.
