According to newspaper reports in the Atlanta Constitution 22 March 1893, and the Mountain Democrat 1 April 1893, the police of New York are inclined to believe that they have in custody the elusive Jack the Ripper. A woman was ripped up the side on March 19, the attack happened in New York, a big knife was left sticking in the wound. The knife was traced as belonging to Frank Castellano, an Italian barber, whose record the police have recently been examining. They have discovered that until recently he was a fireman on board one of the trans-atlantic steamers. There are several circumstances connected with the case that incline the police to believe that Castellano is none other than Jack the Ripper, who has kept the fallen women of London in terror for the past two years. Some go as far as to say that Castellano will be found to be identical with the mysterious man who accompanied Carrie Brown (Old Shakespeare) to the East River Hotel on the night of her murder 24 April 1891, and for whose death, Frenchy the Greek, is now serving a life term In the state prison. Captain Doherty, of the Fifth Precint squad, is said to be much elated at the capture of this man, and says that he will make every effort to secure a complete account of Castellano's travels and operations during the past few years.
