Was she or wasn’t she? On January 26, 1889 nurse Annie Eisenhardt was found cut and bleeding in a restroom at Cooper Hospital. Her tale of what had happened to her and the physical evidence were in conflict, and it appears that her wounds were self-inflicted. Or were they?
The Camden police made another raid early yesterday morning. About 1 o’clock a detail consisting of Officers Pederick, Lee, Anderson, Horner, Baker, and Chief Dodd raided a “speak-easy” and gambling den in a boathouse at the end of North Second street. When the policemen arrived a quiet little game of faro was in progress in the second story.
Annie Eisenhardt, a nurse in the Cooper Hospital, in Camden, N.J., was found lying unconscious in a pool of blood on the second floor of the building, in the bathroom, about 1 o’clock this morning, after being murderously assaulted by a man, who apparently escaped from the building through the window, by means of a rope formed by tying towels together.
