Note to recorder:

This is for a class learning english as a foreign language so can you please read at a moderate pace please ?
A "neutral" accent would be great.
You can imagine that it is a radio broadcast.

Listen up everybody !
This morning of the 6th August 1888, a dark discovery was made ! The body of a dead woman was found in the district of Whitechapel, London.
According to the police, it's at 5a.m that someone found the body of MARTHA TABRAM. She was lying in a pool of her own blood at the corner of a dark street. The person who made the discovery contacted the police immediately.
According to what we know, MARTHA TABRAM was seen with a man earlier. Some witnesses talk about an arguement they heard, followed by the scream of a woman, but no one intervened because they said they were too affraid. As nobody really saw the scene, we can't tell if it was really MARTHA TABRAM's screaming.
However, miss TABRAM, who was 39 years old, spent a lot of time in the company of different men. Indeed, she was a well known prostitute in the area, which also means that she knew the streets pretty well. So the police is not excluding the track of an argument with a customer.
When the body of the victim was inspected, the detective found 39 wounds from the throat to her lower abdomen. The wounds may have been inflicted by two different weapons. The first weapon used must have been a simple pocket knife, but the other was much longer and stronger, like maybe a sword or a dagger.
Some witnesses have seen a strange man running in the streets around the time of the murder, he appreared to be thin and tall, wearing a top hat and a cape. If you see someone corresponding to the description, please report to the police immediately. Also, we advise you not to wonder in the street alone late at night !
Goodbye and take care !
