Colchester Murder. "1\ Reported Arrest of Blatch in New Zealand, RECOGNISED BY A BARMAID. A man believed to be Arthur Blatch has been arrested in New Z^a'ar.d in connection with the mysterious and pvuesome crime at Colchester in December, 1893, when Mr Alfred Welch, a clothier, was beaten to death and his house set on fire. The Press Association's Chelmsford correspondent says that the capture was brought about in consequence of the accused being identi- fied by a barmaid bo whom he wt* wel I known in England, A good deal :0£ mystery hM always surrounded the crime, which was of an exception- ally brutal character, imrrcdiately afterwards Biatcb, who was suspected (he had formerly been a porter in Mr Welch's employ), disappeared, and for three years has evaded arrest. When he left Colchester he was not believed to have any means, and it has been a great surprise how lie succeeded m getting out of the oountry, which he could not have done until some weeks after the murder. The evidence at the inquest went to show that the deceased must have had over £100 in a cash-box, which was regu- larly kept in a deed-box; and that when the deed box, which was fouud locked, was opened after the fire, the looked cashbox was found to be empty: while the bunch of keys was found close to the remains of the deceased. The sensation was intensified when during the inquiry on subsequent days, the facts were deposed to that a charred stout packing cord was found coiled around the deceased's neck, that the right jugular vein was cleau cut, hat tbe skuil was fractured to fragments, and, most sensational of all, that death took place before the body was dragged by the rope to the upper room and burned. What the relationship was between the murdered man and Blatch has never been completely cleared up.
