SIX MORE FOR JACK

The Whitechapel Fiend is Evidently Traveling Westward

Stories of His Horrible Atrocities Now Come from Central America

Mutilated Remains of Six More Unfortunates found in Nicaragua

Managua, Nicaragua. Feb. 7.
Either "Jack the Ripper" of Whitechapel, has emigrated from the scene of his ghastly murders, or he has found one or more imitators in this part of Central America. The people have been greatly aroused by six of the most atrocious murders ever committed within the limits of this city. The assassin has vanished and left no trace for identification. All the victims were women of the character who met their fate at the hands of the London murderer. They were found murdered just as mysteriously, and the evidence points to almost identical methods. Two were found butchered out of all recognition. Even their faces were most horribly slashed, and in the cases of all the others their persons were frightfully disfigured. Like "Jack the Ripper's" victims, they have been found in out of the way places. Two of the victims were possessed of gaudy jewelry, and from that it is urged that the mysterious murderer has not committed the crime for robbery. In fact, in almost every detail the crimes and characteristics are almost identical with the Whitechapel cases.
