London's White Chapel Fiend Is Again At Work


Victim Was Conscious When Found, but Died Without Making Any Statement - Wounds Inflicted Too Revolting To Be Discussed

London, May 28.

A sensational murder case, accompanied by mutilation, has occurred in a low lodging house in Dorset Street, White chapel, close to the scene of the "Jack the Ripper" murder of 1888. The victim, a woman named Annie Austin, twenty-eight years of age, was found mortally injured in a bed room on Sunday morning and was removed to a hospital, where she died.

The murderer escaped, and the police were not notified of the crime until yesterday. The murderer's long start and the total lack of description of him render his apprehension unlikely.

The wounds on the lower part of the victim's body are too revolting for description. The woman was conscious when found, but died without making a statement.

The police are apprehensive of further outrages and a panic has been created in the neighborhood.
