THE WINDSOR MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 29 March 1892

. THE WINDSOR MURDER. .PUBLIC interest in what may truthfully be termed the most atrocious series of murders in the annals of crime continues unabated. Since the news published on Tuesday last, the most important relates to the production of Deeming at tho Perth Police Court, and the identification of tho murderer by Mr. Hir6chfcldt, his fellow passenger on thc Kaiser Wilhelm II. This makes it certain that the prisoner now in charge of the police is Albert Williams, the husband of the woman murdered at Windsor, and the police also found among tho prisoner's effects thc certificate of marriage between Albert Wil liams and Emily Mather. This also con nects Williams with Swanston, by which name the murderer was known to Miss Rounsvollc, and by which he has since been known in Western Australia. Tho identity of Williams with Deeming is also placed almost beyond doubt by a photograph in thc possession of Mrs. H. K. Higson, of Rock hampton, which was given to her by the Mrs. Deeming, whos...

He looked so unsettled, haggard nnd miserable this morning that it is probable that before he leaves Perth that he will have quite broken down. The calculations show conclusively that bc can't be " Jnck the Hipper," ns he was in Cape Colony daring thc whole period of thc Whitechapel murders. Later, Williams, on hearing what had been dis covered, said it was impossible that the re mains could bc identified after so long, and under such circumstances. He denies that be killed his wife, and says that the police muBt be wrong as to the date on which the morder took place, on December 21, inasmuch aa ha can prove that «he was there on December 28. He accounts tur not coinuiuuicauiig wau uer in this way : After they went to the federal Coffee Palace they had a disagreement which led them to agree to separate, and this they did.

Still, if you desire mc to tell it, I shall do so with as good grace as I can command, because I recognise that I had better confide it to some news paper like yours which will publish it with out exaggeration and misrepresentation.
