Is It Jack the Ripper?

Hamburg, Oct. 19.
Excitement has been caused here by the discovery of a murder similar in its details to those perpetrated in Whitechapel, London. The body of a fallen woman has been found in Plensburg, a suburb of this city. The throat was cut, the limbs dismembered and the abdomen cut open. The work of mutilation has been done by the hand of an expert who, if not Jack the Ripper, imitated him closely.
