He may have but it would be nice if we could have a thread based on the actual suspect and not drag Lechmere into every one of them.

Agreed, although I'm not sure I would consider Ellen Bury's murder a copycat. It seems what he did to her was out of drunken anger and necessity to put her in the box.

I mean it's entirely possible someone tried to emulate the JTR murders. Whoever obviously did a bad job at it. Just a suggestion.

I don't know if it's considered a fetish if you've only done it once.

The fetish to me wouldn't be the mutilations but the organ removal.

Maybe I mis-read but didn't he almost come to tears when he was shown a newspaper or something by his lawyer and was afraid he would be considered a JTR suspect?
