Unsolved Murders


Age: 0

Sex: female


Place: 14 Derby Road, Stanley

The body of a dead child was found in a tin trunk.

The body was highly decomposed and so it was impossible to say whether it had been born alive.

It was found by a woman in the tin box wrapped up in an apron.

The tin box had been locked up.

The tin box found by the woman was in a furnished apartment occupied at that time by the woman.
