Emma Smith Thrown out of a Window?

Post by Karen on Wed 21 Aug 2013 - 20:35

I found this particular article interesting, as it describes Emma Smith having been thrown out of a window on a previous evening before she was attacked?


On Saturday, Mr. Wynne E. Baxter, the East London coroner, investigated a case which he characterised as "one of the most dastardly assaults ever heard of," and a murder "of a most barbarous nature." The inquiry was held at the London Hospital, Whitechapel, and it was into the circumstances surrounding the death of Emma Elizabeth Smith, aged forty-five, a widow, lately living at 18, George-street, Spitalfields. Mary Russell stated that the deceased, when she returned home one night, told witness that she had been thrown out of a window. On Bank Holiday deceased left the house in the evening. She returned home between four and five o'clock the next morning severely injured, and said she had been shockingly treated by some men. Mr. George Haslip, house-surgeon, deposed that deceased was admitted suffering from severe injuries. She had been drinking, but was not intoxicated. She had some bruises on her head, and her right ear was torn and bleeding. She told witness that at half-past one that morning she was passing by Whitechapel Church when she saw some men coming. She crossed the road to get out of their way, but they followed her. They assaulted her, robbed her of all the money she had, and then criminally assaulted her. She could not say if they used a knife. She could not describe them, except that one looked a youth of nineteen. After her admission to the hospital she gradually sank and died. The coroner said that from the medical evidence it was clear that the woman had been barbarously murdered. Such a dastardly assault he had never heard of, and it was impossible to imagine a more brutal case. The jury returned a verdict of "Wilful murder against some persons unknown."
