Anyone who doubts that the Victorians (and their press) had a predilection for melodrama ought to read that ten times before breakfast.

If I may interject to add that Fanny Mortimer did not hear anyone call out, nor did she see anyone when she was at her door..off and on until 12:50ish, then steadily until 1.

What Fanny says she heard is problematic for the other witnesses, specifically club witnesses.
