New York Herald
16 November 1888

AN ILLINOIS "RIPPER."
George Hutchinson Murdered a Woman in Whitechapel Style.
[BY TELEGRAPH TO THE HERALD.

Chicago, Nov. 15, 1888.-A dispatch from Elgin, Ill., says that seven or eight years ago a man named George Hutchinson, an inmate of the asylum there, delighted to visit the hospital slaughter house, making many peculiar toys from bones. He was an expert with the knife. After escaping from Elgin he was captured at Kankakee and placed in the insane asylum there.

He escaped from that place and afterward murdered a disreputable woman in Chicago, mutilating her body in a way similar to the Whitechapel cases. He was returned to Kankakee, but afterward escaped, and has been at large three or four years. It is thought by some that he may be the Whitechapel fiend. The police here do not remember him.
