More precisely, where was she born in Canada, and what happened to her after being...

The first time I read about Jack was in a "mystery book" from Reader's Digest.
They claimed his body was found in the Thames, and was killed by vengeful prostitutes.

Sorry this is a bit unrelated, but the thing about her story, if Barnett was right: how can a married 16 year old Catholic girl can manage not getting pregnant for two years?

On the wiki page, it says the artist, after losing...

It's more complicated than that. For several months, he threatened to commit suicide and she tried to convince him not. I guess there was a breaking point where she turned sociopath.

I should have been more accurate in my questioning.

What interest me is the possibility that Philips did talk to MacDonald before, and they came to an agreement.

A question regarding Elizabeth Tanner

She was deputy at the lodging house on 32 Flower and Dean.
Do we know who owned that lodging house?
