Montreal Gazette
5 October 1888

A Sensation Exploded.

LONDON, October 4.--The British Medical Journal, referring to the Whitechapel murders, says:--"The Coroner's theory that the assassin's work was carried out under the impulse of a pseudo-scientific mania has been exploded by the first attempt at serious investigation. It is true that a foreign physician enquired a year ago as to the possibility of securing certain parts of the body for the purpose of scientific investigation, but not large sum was offered and the physician in question is of the highest respectability and came exceedingly well recommended." An inquest on the body of the woman found murdered in Mitre square on Sunday morning was held to-day. The testimony of the surgeons proved that the uterus and one kidney were missing.
