At the Coroners Inquest July 1822 :-

On Monday 8th July 1822 a skeleton had been found on Mousehold Heath.
The remains were taken to the DUKE OF YORK.
At eight-thirty in that evening the news had reached those within the SIR JOHN BARLEYCORN and one man was heard by Maria Adams to say that `She had not been buried quite two years. She was walking over Mousehold with £10 in her pocket, she was stripped naked and murdered. I had nothing to do with it, but could pick out the perpetrators.'
Some boys also said that it was not quite 18 months since they saw a man going off Mousehold with his hands and breeches bloody. Two boys had run after him but he had escaped.
The Coroner gave the opinion that the bones were those of a male, but the man who had talked of murder to Mrs Adams had been remanded to the bridewell for further examination.
A verdict of `Wilful Murder against some person or persons unknown ' was returned.
