The coroner admitted that the body was unusually num.- but insisted nevertheless that the remains were undoubtedly human Physicians who will testify at the trial of Crippen frankly say that they will not be able to swear that the mut ilated remains were those of a woman, all Indications of sex having been re moved, but they will assert that the remains were more likely those of a woman than a man. Several women friends of the actress will testify that she had a peculiar scar and physicians will swear that a mark found is now carefully preserved by the court offi cials, will be Identified by several people as similar to the hair of Belle Elmore.
