Yes, two murders occurred in the Rue Morgue, leave no doubt of the brutality of the murderer. Hearing the commotion at three in the morning, could not tell Parisians about horror, fear and despair that filled the souls of the victims. Caught in a house of gendarmes and onlookers first heard a conversation between two persons, but, having got into the right room, I found nobody in it.
What happened to living here women so desperately screaming for help? What led them to such horror, and who made such a terrible mess, which opened the eyes of people who came here? Two bodies of Madame L Espana and her daughter, later was found, but in what condition! Traces left on the bodies, spoke of incredible strength, cruelty and cunning of a killer. But where is he? And how he managed to get into the locked house and steal from it, without encountering on the way the gendarmes?
Conflicting testimony of the witnesses does not add clarity. To understand it is possible to Auguste Dupen, subordinating all simple, logical, though seemingly improbable, explanation.
