JACK THE RIPPER
Commits Another Revolting Crime in Broad
Daylight

London, Feb. 13.
The woman whose almost decapitated body was discovered in the Whitechapel district at an early hour this morning, with a wound in the back of the nearly severed head, has been identified as a woman of the pavements known as Carrotty Nell.

She was about twenty five years old. A man was arrested on suspicion of having committed the murder. While miserably clad, he is of refined appearance. No blood stains were found on him. He is held for examination.

The scene of the affair is a dark, gloomy archway, known as Swallows Gardens, which forms a passageway from Little Mint street into Chambers street. The archway is frequented as a thoroughfare by railway employees and stablemen, who work in the adjoining streets.

Notwithstanding the fact that at the time of the murder many of these workmen must have been within hearing of a cry of distress, no alarm was heard by any person, so far as the police have been able to ascertain.

The woman's clothes were of fair quality and lay in an orderly fashion about her body. The police believe that the woman was murdered while standing talking to her assailant, and that the Ripper had no time to inflict the peculiar mutilations which have heretofore characterized his savage butcheries. Approaching footsteps, they think, caused him to take flight. When the body arrived at the Whitechapel mortuary the blood was found to be still warm.
