      Hi Stephen,

      I haven't been able to find a mention of it in any other newspaper. If I find anything more about it I'll post it.

      Just so people know, number 6 Millers Court would be the last house on the left. Top one I believe.

        By the way, in February of 1895, the IPN began featuring a sports page on page 2.

          Rob:

          Well spotted and a fine find. One more for the list of Miller's Court incidents.
          I've come up empty handed...

          P.S. That's Det.Sgt. Eli Caunter, not Counter, as mentioned in the article.

            Hi Rob

            Yes the top room in the last cottage on the left.

            This makes four murders in Millers Court between 1888 and 1909.

            And here was me thinking that three was excessive.

                    Yes, good work Phil. This mainly verifies the the story that Rob found and I'm surprised that it seems not to have found its way into other publications. It seems to me, given her disappearance, that the 'wife' whacked him with the poker but so as not to incriminate her, Burchell made up the story of 'some men' having done it.

                      These are some articles and pages from 'The Daily Chronicle' and 'The Police Gazette', NOT East End Newspapers, but I thought I'd put them here.

                      The Daily Chronicle, Thursday 4 October 1888

                        Heh heh....Arthur Dutfield writes a letter to the press disassociating his business from the Yard....and voila !... within a year the Pinchin Street Torso winds up on the same street as his relocated business !
                        It makes you wonder if he started to think that someone was following him around leaving a trail of corpses....

                          Hi Stephen

                          Do we have any stats, even a rough idea, if the number of murders in the east end generally before and after the ripper murders?

                            Colin Roberts posted some brilliant work here on this subject complete with graphs but I can't find it at the moment.

                              Not an East End Newspaper. Ths is from 'The Holborn and Finsbury Guardian' Friday 23 October 1908.

                              Nothing exciting but it is the earliest (that I know of) mention of the crime scenes forming a cross.
