The inquest on the body of Elizabeth Stride, who was murdered in Berner-street, was resumed on Tuesday. – A police-constable deposed that he had seen the photo of the deceased, and recognised it as that of the woman who had married his uncle, John Thomas Stride, in 1872 or 1873. – Elizabeth Stokes, called, said her first husband’s name was Watts. He was a wine merchant at Bath. Mrs Malcolm was her sister, but she had not seen her for years. She wanted to clear her character from her sister’s statement.
The jury returned a verdict of “Wilful murder against some person or persons unknown.”
