Daily Gleaner (Jamaica)
31 December 1888

A brutal murder is reported as having taken place in the Parish of St. Catherine. On Friday morning last the body of a young woman was found lying on the road between Old Harbour and Spanish Town near the fence of Bridge Pen with her throat cut from ear to ear, almost severing the head from the body; the mouth was cut along the length of the jaw and several teeth knocked out while her legs were tied with a handkerchief about the knees. The perpetrator of this diabolical act, we are sorry to say, has not been captured.
