  • Beatrix Desmond- Is the Criminal a woman?

    A theory told by policeman John Gregory. Not sure if he was PC 70 Gregory, plain clothes detective? I wonder what the clue in the hair of Frances Coles was?

        Gary,

        Here is the heading for the original published by the New York World on March 1, 1891. This starts out as if the story is as told by John Gregory, however, it's odd that the writing style is like he were writing a book. I truly don't know if it's fiction or not? I don't recall a PC Gregory mentioned in either the McKenzie or Coles case, though.
