More Double Deaths

The London Daily Express of June 12, 1911, reported the discovery of the body of a woman found in the River Dee near Eccleston. Nearby was found the body of another woman. One was a resident of Eccleston, the other a visitor from the Isle of Man. Both were unknown to each other. Both left home about 10 a.m. on June 10 from houses in opposite parts of town.

Our subject, which is Bodies

In a series of notices of two bodies found near one another, Fort includes this account from the Home News (Bronx), June 15, 1931. A policeman went to awaken a man apparently asleep on a park bench the previous day, but found he was dead. The doctor said the cause of death was probably heart failure. The New York Sun reported that soon after finding that body, another dead man was found on a bench nearby.
