"Great Coram Street murder"

This unsolved murder took place in London on Christmas Day 1872. The victim was Harriet Boswell (also referred to as Harriet Buswell and Clara Burton), who lived at 12 Great Coram Street, and she was probably a prostitute. She was found in a pool of blood, with her throat slit, and it has been suggested that this was an early victim of Jack the Ripper, who murdered women in the nearby Whitechapel area in 1888.
