10 September 1888
The horribly mutilated body of a woman was found early this morning in the yard attached to a common lodging house in Spitalfields. The throat was cut from ear to ear, the body was ripped open, the bowels and heart were lying on ground and a portion of the entrails were tied around the neck. This is the fourth murder of a similar character that has been committed recently in this neighbourhood. All the victims the victims were women of low character. The author of the atrocities remains undiscovered, and the excitement in the immediate borders upon panic.
