  • Murder of a Rotherhithe prostitute - June 1893

    Anyone know of any details concerning the murder of a prostitute found dead in Rotherhithe in June 1893. The killer had cut her throat.

    Hamilton Daily Republic
    27 June, 1893

    JACK THE RIPPER AGAIN

    The foul crimes of Jack the Ripper were again called to mind by a murder that was committed in Rotherhithe, a suburb a short distance to the south-east of London. The body of a woman belonging to the unfortunate class was found with the throat cut, the wound showing that the knife had been used from left to right, as was the case in all the murders committed by the ripper in the Whitechapel district of London.


    Does anyone know anything more of this murder than the press report above? The victim's name? The press once again linked it to the Ripper.
    Best regards,
    Adam

          That she screamed three times and had blood soaked clothing makes it sound not like an attack of the Whitechapel suspect.
          Throat cutting seems to have been a popular means of the time.

            Also, nice to hear you on the Non-Canonical Victims 2 Podcast. You really add a nice touch to the discussions

            As far as the 1893 murder, Ive never heard much about this one. Interesting.
