The Murderer is Hotly Pursued but Manages to Make His Escape

Berlin, Oct. 26.
The body of a woman, well known in the haunts of dissipation, was found lying on the floor of her room Saturday night frightfully mutilated. The police have offered 300 marks for the detection of her murderer. It is believed in the police circles that the woman was a victim of Jack the Ripper of Whitechapel fame. Portions of the body of the murdered woman were carried away by the murderer. The victim was seen to enter the house with a stranger about 2 o'clock a.m. and shortly afterwards the man was seen to go away. Fifteen minutes later the woman was found dead, lying on the floor dressed, even to the matter of gloves. The body of the woman was nearly severed, and was ripped from the neck down. It seems that another woman tried to enter the room before the awful crime was committed. Her attempt disturbed the assailant, who rushed out, pushing aside several who were in the way. The inmates of the house were awakened by the screams, and the unknown was hotly pursued, but he escaped.
