CUT TO PIECES
The Victim of an American Jack the Ripper
A Woman's Shockingly Mutilated Remains Found in a Barrel by Chicago Policemen

Chicago, Ill. February 13.
On Butterfield street, between Twenty-third and Twenty-fourth, in a section of the city which is unpaved, a couple of policemen this morning found in the middle of the road a barrel that had evidently fallen off a wagon some time during the night. On examination they found that it contained the mutilated remains of a woman in an advanced state of decomposition. The feet had been severed from the legs. In an old bloody apron or shawl were the viscera. The long hair of the woman was matted with blood clots and lay in confusion over the trunkless head. The trunk was all chopped into pieces. The fragments were taken to the morgue.
