THE WHITEHALL MYSTERY
(BY TELEGRAPH)

The inquiry was resumed yesterday before Coroner Troutbeck, at Westminster, on the remains of a woman unknown found in the vaults of the buildings of the new police station at Whitehall. William Brown, foreman of the works, produced a plan of the buildings and approaches. He visited the vaults on the Friday before the discovery was made without noticing anything unusual. Two workmen deposed that on the Monday morning they were in the vaults, and saw nothing suspicious. The discovery was made on the afternoon of the same day. Jasper Waring, journalist, stated that he visited the vaults on the 17th inst. with Mr Angle. Witness had a small dog with him. The dog attracted attention to the mound of earth from which portion of a leg was exhumed.

William Angle, journalist, corroborated the last witness, and said the limb was not more than five inches below the surface.

Dr. Bond, divisional police surgeon, said from an examination of the leg that it had been skilfully severed, and he believed it belonged to the body found in the same place previously. Death must have occurred seven or eight weeks ago.

Dr. Hibberd having given corroborative evidence,

The jury returned an open verdict of "Found dead."
