"VOLMER--ATROCIOUS MURDER in San Francisco -- The San Francisco papers contain accounts of an atrocious murder committed in a brothel in that city, between 10 and 11 o'clock, Wednesday evening, 15th inst. A prostitute named Lizzie VOLMER was murdered by her paramour, named Henry VAPPNER. It appeared they had gone to a dance house together, and after returning to her room, they were heard quarreling, occasioned by his being jealous with her for having danced with another man. She thrust him out of doors for his complaining, but he managed to get in again, when he consummated the murder. The discovery of the deed is thus given by the San Francisco 'Telegram,' of Wednesday: Yesterday the house was closed all day, and about 10 o'clock last evening a friend of the murdered woman, by the name of Lizzy, called at the house, she having called several times before. Finding the door still locked she became suspicious that something was wrong, and she accordingly gave the alarm. The door was forced open by officer RAND, when a most horrible spectacle met his gaze. Before him, partly upon the floor and partly upon a trunk, at the foot of the bed, was the cold and lifeless body of the abandoned, hapless woman; near by, with his head resting upon one of her arm, was her miserable paramour, with his throat cut, covered with gore, and almost lifeless; by his side a razor and a lamp. The miserable murderer and would-be suicide, had strangled his victim by twisting his hand in a black velvet ribbon which the unfortunate woman wore around her neck as an ornament. The man was removed to the hospital, and the lifeless body of the woman was taken charge of by the Coroner. Evidences of intended robbery were found in the fact that all the things in the murdered woman's trunk were thrown confusedly around, and the mattresses were cut open. Upon the person of the murdered woman was found, in the bosom of her dress, a certificate of deposit for $800, she having deposited that amount of money 2 days previously. He probably thought she still had it. At last accounts the murderer was still living. He is represented as being 50 years of age." Source: Weekly Stockton Democrat, 20 Mar 1859. Transcribed by Dee.
