Frederick News
Maryland, U.S.A.
22 December 1888


The dead body of an unknown woman was found Thursday morning in the Poplar district, with an empty phial lying beside it.

It was at first supposed that the woman had committed suicide, but evidence has been produced at an autopsy which was held showing that the stomach of the woman contained no poison whatever.

A small cord was found tied around the woman's throat, which, it is believed, produced strangulation. It is thought that death resulted from this cause.

The unfortunate woman has not yet been identified, but she was of the same class as those women who have been murdered by the so called Whitechapel fiend. Her body was still warm when it was discovered.

It is thought to be impossible that the woman could have committed suicide in the open thoroughfare where her body was found, and it is believed that she fell a victim to the miscreant who has murdered so many other women near the locality in which this crime occurred, and who seems to have adopted a new way of disposing of his victims.
