11 September 1889
London, Sept. 10.
The body of a prostitute was found in Whitechapel this morning, the legs and head are missing, the stomach was ripped and the intestines lying on the ground. No arrest has been made. The police pass this spot every fifteen minutes but saw nothing suspicious. The woman was about thirty years, her clothing shabby. She was evidently a spirit drinker. No blood was on the ground where the body was found nor on the body. She had evidently been dead two days, the murderer must have possessed some surgical skill. Intense excitement prevails in Whitechapel.
