A woman who was referred to simply as "One-armed Liz" by the newspapers, told a journalist that she had been taken to the mortuary by the police, and here she had identified the Bern Street victim (Elizabeth Stride) as Annie Morris.
Whether One-armed Liz was lying or whether she Elizabeth Stride had been using this name as an alias is not known.
The York Herald provided the following brief mention of her claim:-
IDENTIFICATION OF THE DECEASED
The woman murdered in Berner-street has been identified.
There appears to be very little doubt as to this, as the belief was current in all parts of the neighbourhood, and a woman who is know n as "one armed Liz," living in a common lodging house in Flower and Dean-street, stated to our representative that she had accompanied Sergeant Thicke to St. George's mortuary, and had identified the body as that of Annie Morris, an unfortunate living in a common lodging-house in the neighbourhood of Flower and Dean-street.
"One-armed Liz" refused to give further information, as she had been instructed to keep the matter to herself.
