Tri-Weekly Budget (Jamaica)
29 December 1888


A frightful murder is reported from St. Catherine. Yesterday morning the body of a respectably clad young female was found on the road between Old Harbour and Spanish Town, near the fence of Bridge Pen. The throat was cut from ear to ear, almost severing the head from the body, the mouth was cut along the length of the jaw, and several teeth were knocked out. The legs were tied at the knees with a handkerchief. There is no clue, we regret to say, to the perpetrator of this fiendish act.
