An Acid Bath Murder
On Monday 25th 1991 at 15.00 hours passers-by heard cries for help coming from a locked, rented garage in East London. They called the police and the fire brigade, who forced entry at 15.15 hours. A young woman was found lying, still conscious, behind the garage door, and a black industrial bath, filled with fuming hydrochloric acid, was discovered at the rear of the fume-filled garage. The young woman was taken to the local hospital where she died at 18.10 hours with severe acid burns.
