Here at the Norman Shaw Buildings (formerly known as New Scotland Yard) parts of a body were found linked to the Whitehall Mystery. This mystery is an unsolved murder that took place in London in 1888. The dismembered remains of a woman were discovered at three different sites in the centre of the city, including the future site of Scotland Yard, the police's headquarters. It has become a point of trivia and irony that Scotland Yard, one of the world's best-known police agencies, is built on a crime scene related to an unsolved murder. On 2 October 1888, during construction of the Metropolitan Police's new headquarters, to be known as Scotland Yard, on the Victoria Embankment near Whitehall in Westminster, a worker found a parcel containing human remains. The female torso was discovered in a three-month-old vault that made up part of the cellar. Newspapers suggested a tie to Jack the Ripper's killings of prostitutes that were occurring simultaneously, but the Metropolitan Police said there was no connection.
