At 1.44.in the morning, PC Watkins of the City Police entered Mitre Square from Mitre Street which was his particular beat. It usually took him 14 minutes to patrol. When he passed Mitre Square at 1.30.a.m. there was no-one to be seen. Yet 1.44.a.m. he stepped into the square. In the south west corner, he saw a figure, that of Catherine Eddowes. As he shone his lantern across his grisly discovery, he saw that the woman had been completely mutilated.
