Unsolved Murders

William James Clark

Age: unknown

Sex: male

Date: 23 Feb 1923

Place: River Thames

William James Clark was found dead in the River Thames.

He was a wealthy Manor Park estate agent.

However, doctors agreed that there was no evidence that he had drowned, nor could they find any signs of poison.

A woman who had known William Clark by sight said that she had seen him 3 days after he had disappeared sitting in a two seater car with another man. She said that she was struck by his cold, miserable and preoccupied aspect. She also described the man that she had seen sitting in the car with him.
