On the night of 30 September 1888, prostitute Elizabeth Stride was found dead in Dutfield’‘s Yard off Berner Street. Though the body was not mutilated, the murder is usually attributed to Jack the Ripper, as her body was found the same night as that of Catherine Eddowes, only a few streets away. It is thought the killer may have been interrupted before mutilating Stride, thus causing him to seek out another victim in a quieter location.
