Default Auckland Star, 12 May 1928, p.3

Auckland Star, Vol. LIX, issue iii, 12 May 1928, p.3:

"Train Murder.

Girl's Body Found Under Seat.

This articles mentions that 38 pounds were given by Elizabeth to her sister (whom she was visiting) at Hounslow, and she took 3 pounds for her own use in a small green purse. It mentions that the purse was found empty on the floor of the train.

"But the only other clue was a handkerchief bearing the name of "Camp" which was found in the speaking tube which connected with the kitchen at Waterloo Station."

"A young man named Arthur Marshall was arrested on suspicion. It was leaned that he had left his home on the morning of the murder and returned three days later. But there was nothing to connect him with the tragedy and he was discharged."

Default Wandgann Chronicle, Issue 20031, 14 March 1914, P.3

[Again an article spurred on by the Starchfield mystery. This may be from a common source as the other 1914 article, but I put down what I thought might be of interest.]

"Railway crimes.

"This crime will be known always as the "pestle" case.

"heavy wedgewood pestle"

"There were three very live clues, all of which, however, drew blank; and a former sweetheart easily cleared himself of suspicion. The remarkable part of the case was that two men whom the police were following up both completely disappeared -- on an old lover near King's Cross who was suspected of owning the pestle, and, who got wind of the police plans prematurely through the indiscretions of a reporter, and the other a medical man who's photograph was discovered in the victim's box. Miss Camp was a barmaid in Walworth, a typical "good sort" who had at one time been a hospital nurse...."

Default Brooklyn Eagle, Saturday, Sept. 25, 1897, p. 14

From a column "An Epidemic of Murder"

"The murder in a railway carriage of Miss Camp, in February [sic] last, the perpetrator of the crime not having been discovered, has been followed by another railway tragedy in which Mrs. Bryan, the wife of Dr. Bryan of Northampton has been killed."

Default New Zealand Herald, Vol XXXIV, Issue 10581, 23 October 1897

This article is not regarding Miss Camp, but is in reference to the second "railway" tragedy of 1897 mentioned in the Brooklyn Eagle.

A Dr. and Mrs. Bryan lived in Nottingham. He was a well established physician. He appears to have been elderly, while Mrs. Bryan was middle aged. Mrs. Bryan became acquainted with a young man who was a draughtsman, known as "Hal", and they apparently started a love affair. This became known to the Doctor, who tried to end it - and then Mrs. Bryan was found dead on some railway tracks 2 miles North of Tring in September 1897. It looked like an accident or suicide, but it might have been a homicide.

The story appears not to have had as much lasting impact as Ms Camp's.
