London, Dec 24.
Another woman of the unfortunate class has been murdered in a lonely yard in the neighborhood of Poplar. The body was not mutilated in the same way as the recent Whitechapel victims, but it bears the marks of fingers on the neck, leading to the supposition that the murderer attempted to remove the vocal cord, but was disturbed whilst engaged in the work. By some it is believed that the murderer is identical with the Whitechapel murderer, but that he is pursuing a new method of killing and mutilating his victims.
