Oliver Matthews

Mathews aroused the suspicion of Richard Watson, who while sitting next to him in the Trevor Music Hall, Knightsbridge, noticed that Mathews had in his possession a small black bag. Watson informed the police of his suspicions and Mathews was questioned and his bag searched. When his bag was opened it was found to contain only clean linen. Mathews, who lived at 14 Wharton Street, Kings Cross, was able to prove his innocence.
