Jack The Ripper Fact-Fridays

Around 3:40 a.m. On August 31, 1888, a carman named Charles Cross was on his way to work and saw a bundle across the street. As he went to inspect it, and noticed it was a woman, another carman, named Robert Paul’s footsteps could be heard behind him. He turned and called the man over and they inspected the body together. Her hands and face were cold but the upper part of her arms and legs were still warm. Paul saw that she was breathing, “…very little if she is,” and he wanted to sit her up. Cross thought they should not move her and they rearranged her skirts, which had been pulled up to her stomach, to give her some decency, before going to find a policeman to report their discovery.
When Dr. Llewellyn arrived at the scene, (casebook.org says around 3:50), he pronounced her dead and by a few minutes. (casebook.org) The body was later identified as Polly Nichols.
