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'.
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.
