Crime Circular, New South Wales Police Department, Sydney, 6 September 1934
The Australian Federal Police Museum
The identity of the victim and her murderer involved a gruesome 10-year inquiry. Many reports of missing women were sent to investigators in Victoria, New South Wales and the Federal Capital Territory. The body was found in Albury, NSW, but was eventually confirmed as a Melbourne woman, killed in her Carlton home. In 1944 the husband of the victim confessed to Commissioner William Mackay in relation to the crime. He was later tried for murder, but convicted of manslaughter.
