Unsolved Murders


Age: 2 months

Sex: female

Date: 20 Aug 1913

Place: Weybridge Heath, Weybridge

The body of a female child aged about two months was found in a tomato box in Weybridge.

The body was discovered in the box, first described as an old fish box, near a footpath leading across the heath from the railway station to the town. It was thought that it had been brought to the neighbourhood by train.

The child's death was said to be due to suffocation and was thought to have been probably caused by drowning.

Her clothes were of good quality and the box contained a portion of a man’s shirt that bore the London makers name.
