WORSHIP STREET - THE WHITECHAPEL SUSPECT

Joseph Isaacs, 30, cigar maker, with no fixed abode, was charged on remand with having stolen from the shop of a watchmaker named Levenson a gold watch value 30s. The prisoner, it may be remembered, had been sought for by the police in consequence of a report of his movements on the night of the murder of Mary Janet Kelly in Dorset street, Spitalfields; and it was said by the police that they wished the fullest inquiry as to the prisoner's movements on the night of Nov. 8. For that purpose he was remanded, but Detective Sergeant Record, H Division, said that so far there was no further charge against the prisoner. The prisoner was then asked if he wished to go to trial, but he pleaded guilty, and was sentenced to three months' hard labour.
