A Case of Mistaken Identity

For 10 days in March 1922, Baltimore police investigated the suspicious sight of a woman’s bleeding body seen driven in an automobile, according to the Baltimore Sun. But it turns out that this murder mystery was simply a case of mistaken identity:

“After 10 days’ investigation to determine the identity of the woman whose bleeding body was reported to have been seen in an automobile crossing Hanover Street Bridge, Police of Southern district last last cleared up the mystery. The ‘woman’ was a freshly killed beef which L Snyder, a grocer of Westport, was taking to his store,” according to the newspaper report.
