Wilberforce—a Sergeant on the
Metropolitan Police Detective Force. But Wilberforce was no common “Jack” (police officer).
Even before working with the famous Chung Ling Soo (The Case Of The Thames Serpent), Wilberforce had “tasted the chin strap” on many tough cases –even a stint in the Army saw him used because of his detective skills.
Here, Ben R. Dilworth, gives us a sneak peek into Wilberforce’s Case Notes for 1896.
“A Jack’s lot is not a happy one” and Wilberforce was not just dealing with the ordinary criminals such as the nobblers, rampsmen, smashers, mobsmen, snoozers and skinners….
...there were the spectres, the satanic followers, vampires and other
monsters —things the ordinary copper never usually encountered and often scoffed at the stories of.
Wilberforce knew better.
