Catherine Lord was the fourth victim of the Copy-Cat murderer Alexander Newman. It is assumed that she was chosen as the fourth victim as she shared the same first name as the actual Ripper's fourth victim, Catherine Eddowes.
Catherine Lord worked at a pub, and was not much older than Rory. On the night of her death, the pub was hosting a 'Ripper' themed party where staff and guests dressed in costumes from the 19th century. Catherine was dressed in a white dress and was a fitting choice of victim for the copy-cat killer. Her body was discovered the next day on Wexford's grounds. It was at the site of her murder that Rory first met the killer.
