Hello Richard

I've seen much higher-res versions of that print that make it pretty clear that we're dealing with Miller's Court. Sorry I don't have a copy that I can post... perhaps someone else...

Clearly not, Caz, and I've never implied anything of the sort. What I would expect, however, would be something rather different to the semi-literate and risible attempt at grand guignol that we see...

I get precisely the opposite impression, Caz. To me, the author is trying to "dumb up", so to speak, but falls flat on his/her arse in the attempt.

No he doesn't. He says he's going to clip the EARS and send them to the police. In the event, he only cut one EAR - despite the fact that he had ample time to cut off both. Furthermore, he didn't...

Hello Abby

As I've said, the "had not time to get ears for police" seems to refer to the "first one" (Stride), the reason for his not having time being because she "squealed a bit". As I've also...

Perhaps it was in the madness of the moment that he forgot that he had pockets ;) Plus of course it would have taken him no time at all to remove the other ear. But he didn't.

If he'd deliberately set out to cut off the ear with a view to taking it away, wouldn't he already have had a grip on it with his (non-knife-wielding) hand? I know that's what I'd do, so it's hard to...

Was it taken away? Was it sent to the police? Did the postcard refer to Eddowes at all, never mind the killer's (apparently only partial) success with her (one) ear?
