Another Woman Falls a Victims to His Murderous Knife.
BLOODHOUNDS ON HIS TRACK.
One More East London Mystery--The Corpse Horribly Mutilated.
The appearance of the remains was frightful and the mutilation was even greater than in the previous cases. THe head had been severed and placed beneath one of the arms. The ears and nose had been cut off, the body had been disembowelled and the flesh was torn for the thighs. The womb and other organs were missing. The skin had been torn off the forehead and cheeks. On hand had been pushed into the stomach.
The victim, like all the others, was a prostitute. She was married and her husband was a porter. They had lived together at spasmodic intervals. Her name is believed to have been Lizzie Fisher, but to most of the habitues 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 bo one saw the man who accompanied her. Therefore its [sic] hardly likely he will ever be identified. He might easily have left the house at any time between one six 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 blood hounds belonging to private citizens were taken to the place where the body was 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 has been abandoned.
