THE POPLAR MURDER.

Nothing in the shape of a clue to the identity of the murderer of the woman Mylett had been obtained up to last night. Dr. Brownfield, the divisional surgeon of police, has not the slightest reason to alter the opinion he expressed at the inquest - namely, that the deceased was foully murdered. The medical men who have been concerned in the inquiry are of the opinion not only that the deceased was murdered, but that the deed was the work of a skilful hand. A second examination of the body was made after the inquest, and on the skin of the neck being removed a quantity of congealed blood was found. This proved that considerable pressure must have been applied from without. It is understood that surprising medical evidence may be expected when the coroner's inquiry is resumed on Wednesday next. A strange feature in connexion with the matter is the fact that when the body was found the mouth was shut, whereas in cases of death by strangulation the tongue is generally found to protrude.
