How the Murder of a Young Englishwoman Haunted the Last Days of Old China and how 75 years later, author Paul French has discovered the probable killer.
In January 1937, a British woman named Pamela Werner was found murdered near the ancient walls of Peking. With Japanese invaders near by, the CHinese police sought desperately to quickly identify the murderer, but were unable to do so.
The victim, Pamela Werner was the 19 year old daughter of British consul E. T. C. Werner and a resident in Peking. Her murder and mutilation has never been solved. Without specific evidence, the crime was attributed to a Japanese secret society or an American organized sex ring. An English resident in China claimed that Werner’s death was in retaliation for the killing of a Japanese soldier by British soldiers in a barroom brawl. British diplomats accepted this account and did not take the matter further.
