Good points, mirroring to some extent, my own thoughts. I feel that Tabram was likely a Ripper victim. The killer, having struggled to killer, keep her quiet, etc., evolved in future murders to...

Hi, Ally.

In my view, Christer demands respect at all times, but only gives it to those who (he claims) support his theory (Griffiths, Payne-James, Ed Stowe), and they receive glowing praise...

If more than one person were involved, I'm convinced that we'd know who "Jack the Ripper" was. I think he'd have been arrested, executed. And he'd be far less interesting.

Further, I don't think...

I'm careful to uses terms like "I believe" and "in my opinion". I'm pretty sure I did so here. I'm not in the business of "dismissing" much of anything related to the Whitechapel murders.

That's my feeling exactly. I can envision a scenario in which the killer attempts to strangle Tabram, rendering her - to use a favorite term - "insensible" but perhaps not dead. She's down, not at...

Okay. I don't want to cheat and google it. So, my honest answer is that I don't remember. I may be wrong but it's got something to do with sunlight reflecting off of Earth's atmosphere.

We can only see the moon when it's reflecting sunlight. The position of the moon before/during an eclipse doesn't allow for it to reflect sunlight.

I don't think there's much we can find, at this point, to identity the man, definitively. There may be a chance, a very small one, that police files, fragments or otherwise, may be found. However,...
