Last night London was startled by a crime of incredible ferocity and rendered all the more notable by the high position of the victim. Sir Danvers Carew, a MP, was murdered not far from the Thames River on the alleyway close to the Billy Goat Tavern. This happened at around eleven until two in the night. He was clubbed to death with a heavy cane. There is no apparent motive for Sir Carew’s murder. An eyewitness is the maidservant, which sustains to have seen the whole scene from her bedroom window. Her description of the suspect Mr Hyde, the murderer, was: particularly small and wicked looking. Another source was Mr Hyde’s maid. She lived in Mr Hyde’s in Soho. By talking to her we gathered that Mr Hyde the main subject wasn’t much liked. Very little is known of him. Two months had passed and the maid hadn’t seen him until yesterday very late in the night. A splintered part of the cane was found in a gutter near the victim’s body, the other half was later found by the police in Mr Hyde’s house. A witness recognises it as one he’d given to as a present to one of his friends some years ago as a present this friend also knew Mr Hyde.
