Edwin Burrows

Burrows, a vagrant, was arrested on 8 December 1888 because he was wearing a peaked cap similar to the one described by Israel Schwartz, who had witnessed Elizabeth Stride being thrown to the ground by a man wearing such a cap shortly before she was murdered. Burrows resided at Victoria Chambers, a common lodging house, interspersed with periods of sleeping rough in public parks. Burrows was described as about 45 years of age, 5ft 5"tall, with dark hair and whiskers, and was said to have been respectable in appearance. He lived on an allowance of one pound a week from his brother.
