Illustration depicts a man being kicked out down the steps of the Home Office; he holds in his hand a piece of paper that reads "Whitechapel Murders. No Reward Offered. Miss Cass". [Sir Charles Warren (in reaction to the Cass case) was to issue an order prohibiting police officers from arresting street walkers unless a direct complaint had been made by a member of the public or with corroborating evidence. In June 1887 Police Constable Endacott arrested an innocent milliner Elizabeth Cass on Regent Street (who was on her way to purchase a pair of gloves) and charged her with soliciting. The Whitechapel murders were committed in or near the Whitechapel district of London between 3 April 1888 and 13 February 1891. The Whitechapel Murders saw the resignation of the head of the London Metropolitan Police, the drafting of 143 extra policemen to Whitechapel and the rise of private citizen militias to patrol the streets after dark. None of the Whitechapel Murders has ever been solved].
