The Ripper Again At Work

The Jack the Ripper scare has again caused a sensation among the London police and the residents of the South Hampstead locality. Last night, in a secluded part of the neighborhood, passers by were shocked by the finding in an obscure alley of the dead body of a woman whose head had been very nearly severed, while her body showed evidences of kicks and bruises in themselves sufficient to cause death. While up to the present time no knowledge has been obtained as to whom the victim was, it seems very evident that she was a woman of very low repute and this was sufficient to start the cry "Jack the Ripper has been at work again." The police actively began operations in a search for the murderer.
