"WHITECHAPEL TRAGEDY"

The man giving the name of Holt who was arrested in connection with the Whitechapel murder has been discharged. It was ascertained that he is really connected with St. George's Hospital and has a residence at Willesden. He stated in conversation with police officers that he was an amateur detective and had been out in various disguises for the last few nights. He is said to be well connected, but no friends have appeared. He was released at a quarter to two, telegrams from his friends having established his identity.
