Gone But Not Forgotten: They say there's no such thing as the perfect murder, but practically every day of the year someone is killed and their killer remains at large. This section of the archive is dedicated to the victims of the UK's unsolved murders of the 20th century...

Gone But Not Forgotten: September

September 22nd 1905
22/9/1905
Mary Sophia Money – Merstham


French novelist Emile Zola wrote a bestseller, La Bęte Humaine, towards the end of the 19th century about a man who saw a murder happening in a train compartment as the train flashed past him. A few years later, on Friday, September 22nd, 1905, a signalman at Purley Oaks, Surrey, on the London to Brighton line said he saw the same thing – a couple struggling in a carriage as a train flashed by.
Four hours after that the severely mutilated body of teenager Mary Sophia Money, a dairymaid, was found in Merstham Tunnel, halfway down the line.
The police speculated that she had met a man who lured her on to the train at Victoria either to go for a ride or to see her home to Clapham, the first stop. He then pushed her off the train in the tunnel.
