  • William Seaman The Recividist

    Bad egg this fellow.
    You may recall he put a hammer upside the head of a chemist on Berner Street shortly after the Stride murder

    April 19, 1896

              I hadnít previously spotted that Seaman was living in Claude Street, Millwall in 1896. It was a long way from anywhere in the middle of the Isle of Dogs.
