Unsolved Murders


Age: unknown

Sex: male

Date: 11 May 1933

Place: River Thames

An unidentified man was found in the River Thames.

It was thought that his death might have been associated with the death of Zeinep Vlaia who died mysteriously the year before although the Coroner said that he didn't think that there was any reason to connect the fatalities.

On his body the police found a piece of paper on which was a word that resembled 'Zeinip' and then a message which read 'You go, so I go, Marcelle'.

His body was thought to have been in the water for about three months.

His inquest returned an open verdict of found drowned.
