Cleveland Torso Murderer Strikes Again

Police of this city, puzzled since 1934 as to the identity of Cleveland's Mad Torso Murderer, had a new problem to solve, May 2nd, when bridge tenders on the murky Cuyahoga river dragged from the waters five portions of a woman's body. Officials were undecided whether a thigh, a complete trunk severed in the middle, portions of two legs and a right foot were those of the 11th victim, whose leg was found on April 8th, or whether they were portions of a new and 12th victim. Officials are shown with a burlap bag, which, when taken from the water, contained the complete trunk of the woman's body.
