Default Bloodstained jacket

I wonder if anyone can help me? I remember reading a newspaper account of a bloodstained jacket being found in the back garden of a house in (I think) the Mile End Road. It may be amongst the many Press Reports posted on this site but for the life of me I can't seem to find it again. I seem to remember that the house was owned by a local newspaper and, maybe for that reason, it was assumed to be a hoax. Does anyone else recall seeing it?

Hi prosector
The only thing I can think of is the wet leather apron piece found in the back yard of 29 hanbury on the morning of the chapman murder. I Beleive it turned out to belong to one of the owners sons though.
Probably not what your looking for. Sorry.

Hi Abby

Thanks for your reply. No, it wasn't the leather apron in the yard of 29 Hanbury Street I was thinking of nor the blood stained coat taken to a laundry in Grays Inn Road or the blood stained shirt at Mrs Kuer's house in Batty Street. This was a coat or jacket found in the back yard of a house in, I think, the Mile End Road. I have searched the Casebook site several times using various search terms with no luck so far. It may well have bee somewhere else that I saw it.

Hi Prosector,

It wasn't near the Mile-end road, but there was this discovery of blood stained clothes;-

"In London the detectives continue their inquiries into the recent crimes. Some hope of a clue was received by the discovery in Devonshire-street of a parcel of blood-stained clothes. The garments were submitted without delay to a medical expert, who expressed the opinion that they had not been connected with any crime, but had been thrown away by some person suffering from skin disease." - Evening News 25th Sept

Prosector,

Can you remember when (after which murder?) this occurred? This might help narrow down the search.

No that wasn't the one I'm trying to find. This one was definitely a jacket found in a back garden in or near the Mile End Road.

I wish I could. I think it was after the Double Event but before Miller's Court but I'm not sure. The trouble is that I do quite a lot of newspaper archive research and I can't remember where I read it. It may have been at the old British Newspaper Archive in Colindale or somewhere else and I don 't seem to have kept a note of it.
