THE LONDON MURDERS
'■■ (FIB PEEBS ASSOCIATION.) . Sydney, Ootober 31. The London correspondent of the 11 Sydney Morning Herald " states that at the inquest on the last victim of the London murders Doctor Baxter gave it as his opinion there was every reason to believe the murders were committed for the purpose of obtaining specimens of portions of the human body. They i were the work not of a lunatic, but of a medical student, who was a surgeon, for the body was cut up m a way that — showed the assassin knew exactly where to find the organ he wanted. No meaningless cuts were observable, and this applied not to one, but all the victims.
