THE EAST END MURDERS

On Saturday afternoon the Birmingham detectives informed the police at Scotland yard that a man suspected of being concerned in the Whitechapel murders had left that town by train for London. Detectives Leach and White, of the Criminal Investigation Department, proceeded to Willesden Junction and Euston respectively, and at the latter station Inspector White detained the person in question and conveyed him to Scotland Yard. It was stated that he had been staying at a common lodging house in Birmingham since Monday last. The suspected person was a medical student who was some years ago practising in London. He was of gentlemanly appearance and manners, and somewhat resembled the description given by witnesses at the late inquest. After being closely questioned as to his whereabouts at the time of the murders, and supplying a satisfactory account of himself, he was liberated.
