Default Whitechapel High Street Newspaper Shop Murder in 1904

Ladies/Gents,

Just become aware of this incident. Have surfed the net but can't seem to find anything on it? Has anyone got any knowledge on it or can point me in the direction of somewhere I can find something?

I've not heard of this murder before, but could this be this one?

http://www.oldbaileyonline.org/brows...f=t19041114-47

It describes the 1904 murder trial of victim Emily Farmer, who ran a newspaper shop at 478 Commercial Road. This is about a mile and a half from where it joins Whitechapel High Street, but a newspaper report does headline it 'Murder in Whitechapel'.

Could very well be Josh. It appears to be a story in this book? I'd not heard of it before.

Hi Joshua and PC2267

I can confirm that Neil Storey's East End Murders: From Jack the Ripper to Ronnie Kray does include a chapter on "The Whitechapel Newspaper Shop Murder. Conrad Donovan and Charles Wade, 1904." I don't personally have the book but knowing, as I do, that Mr. Storey is a solid researcher, I am certain the book would be worth getting. The book also covers the Ratcliffe Highway murders of 1811, the Houndsditch murders of 1910, the Siege of Sidney Street in early 1911, Lipsky, Wainwright, Cronin, and Stockwell, as well as the Whitechapel murders and the Krays as advertised on the cover.

Best regards

Chris

Hi All,

Fred Wensley devotes a chapter (vi) to the case in his memoir Detective Days.
