I believe that was the reason given. But even that action implies there were reasons people might make such a connection. Also, that wasn't the sole action, they had called for a...

You are of course correct, they may very well have been so intent on finding any type of clue, their objectivity was compromised.

Actions, I think, tell us more than words in this instance. The police at the time felt the apron was close enough to the writing that a connection could be inferred. The evidence is:

It's a theory that fits the facts, and one which I find compelling, but we would need more information to be sure.

Hi Darryl. It wasn't an exclusively Jewish area, so probably insufficient on its own to conclude he was Jewish. But I think you are right that he lived in the area or knew the area well.

Two authentic comms from the Ripper?

I would like to propose that at least two of the communications discussed in relation to the murders were sent by the murderer. They are:
1. the GSG;
2. the 'From Hell' letter.
