The Camden Mystery
Was she or wasn’t she? On January 26, 1889 nurse Annie Eisenhardt was found cut and bleeding in a restroom at Cooper Hospital. Her tale of what had happened to her and the physical evidence were in conflict, and it appears that her wounds were self-inflicted. Or were they?
Besides Nurse Eisenhardt, other significant players in the story include Dr. Harry Jarrett of Cooper Hospital, Camden Chief of Police Samuel Dodd, Camden Mayor Jesse Pratt, Cooper Hospital night watchman Samuel Ellis, and Camden County prosecutor Wilson H. Jenkins.
