New York Police Think They Have Caught the Whitechapel Terror
New York, March 21.
The police of this city are inclined to think they have the elusive "ripper" in their clutches. A woman was ripped up her side Sunday night and a big knife left sticking in the wound. The knife was traced to one, Frank Castellano, an Italian barber, whose record has been under a police searchlight. They have discovered that until recently he was a fireman aboard one of the trans-Atlantic steamers. There are circumstances connected with the case that incline the police to believe that Castellano is no other than the mysterious duck, the "ripper", who kept London in terror for two years.
