Whilst she was in prison, Calvert said that she had been worried for some time about the death of a man to whom she had acted as housekeeper before she was married. However, when questioned she refused to elaborate. His death had been attributed to a drowning accident, but one of the officers who worked on the case remembered that Frobisher had been discovered minus his boots and it was that peculiarity which first linked Calvert with the Frobisher case; within days of her death police were convinced that she was responsible for the murder of John Frobisher.

His pockets had been emptied and been left inside out. A reward was offered to anyone who could offer the police information on who had committed the crime, but almost a month elapsed before the police were ready to charge anyone for the murder. They apprehended Sargisson who admitted that he had been present when the attack took place, but denied murdering Cooper. He told officers where they would find the watch and other items stolen from Cooper on the night of the murder and named two other men, Denton and Taylor, who he said were responsible for the murder, adding that Denton struck the fatal blow.

Similar marks were noticed on her wrists. The police surgeon Dr Hoyland Smith immediately pronounced her dead and the police only had one suspect, especially as the murdered woman had already spoken to them about Louie Calvert. On the Thursday night detectives knocked on the Calverts’ door at Railway Place, about a mile and a half from the murder scene. She was found to be wearing boots belonging to Waterhouse, which were several sizes too big for her. She was also carrying a suitcase full of items also belonging to the murdered woman.
