The dead body of Annie Elizabeth Haines, the eighteen-year-old servant of a Hlnckley clergyman, was found in a deep ditch near Croft on Monday after noon, 7th October. The body bore no marks of ill-usage, and for a time both the police and a doctpr were un&ble, on a superficial examination, to find anything to ac count for her death. Some articles found near the spot, however, led to the arrest of a young man who had been keeping company with the girl. First were found the girl's parcels, basket, and bunch of flowers, and two hundred yards away a man's 'collar, a detachable front, ami a pair of broken braces. The police were unable to nod any traces of a struggle having taken place, and, beyond a few insignificant scratches on the girl's neck, her body bears no marks of violence.
