Jack the Ripper

New York, April 24.
Last night a man and woman registered at a cheap hotel here as man and wife. They immediately retired, and as nothing was seen of them this morning the door of the room was broken in. On the bed lay the woman covered with blood. She had been dead for hours. Her abdomen was ripped open with a dull broken table knife that lay in her blood. The viscera had been cut and from appearances a part was missing. The man had escaped. A very imperfect description of his was given the police and they went to work on it with utmost secrecy and speed. They think he is Jack the Ripper.

The Coroner made a hasty examination of the body and found the woman had been dead a number of hours. He removed the clothes from her face and neck and revealed a ghastly visage. The tongue was out and swollen, the eyes bulged from their sockets and the nose flattened to the face and about the neck was a circle of congealed blood. The appearance of the face convinced the Coroner that the woman had first been strangled and then cut. On turning over the body it was found the murderer had left his mark. The broken end of the knife had been used to make a large cross on the base of the spine. The proprietor, Jennings, and assistant housekeeper, Mary Muniton, told the police all they knew about the case. The housekeeper said the murdered woman's companion was decidedly German in appearance but she could not tell from his appearance how long he had been in this country. She said he resembled a seafaring man. Mary said the woman was a well known character around the neighborhood, but no one seemed to know her or where she lived. The police are scouring the city and vessels around the docks for the murderer.
