13th July 1910: Murder investigation after body found
The body was that of Cora Crippen, a music hall entertainer known as Belle Elmore. She had been hidden in the cellar of the house in Hilldrop Crescent in Camden.
Police immediately launched a manhunt for her husband, 48-year-old Dr Hawley Harvey Crippen, and soon received a telegraph message from the captain of a ship on its way to Canada that he was on board accompanied by his lover, Ethel Le Neve.
Police raced across the Atlantic and arrested Dr Crippen before the ship docked at Montreal.
Brought back to the UK to stand trail, he was later found guilty at the Old Bailey and hanged at Pentonville Prison in November.
