Alternative explanations

-- If not the killer himself, perhaps an accomplice responsible for the dumping of the parts. (Though why he did not squeal on the killer is a point.)

Hi, Abby,

No, "From Hell" was published in serial format from 1989 to 1996, so it was closer to the 100th anniversary.

I think the 70th anniversary was 1958.

Canal as connection

Hi, Steve.

I think it's an interesting idea, and would like to know more about the canals, the river, and these "dangerous boatmen" we've heard were plying their crafts up and down at the time.

"The Bicentennial Man" was based on a collection of Isaac Asimov's Robot stories, in which an AI humanoid robot got elected President.

Huh, wonder if Alpha Go Zero is available in 2020?

Additional thoughts

After getting caught up with the posts, I see the idea has been discussed before. A joke between "surgeon" and "butcher" is very possible.

Still, Tait was very skilled in a relatively new specialty...

Tait as suspect?

Probably a baseless speculation on my part, but could the pioneer founder of gynecological surgery have known so much about the torsos because he was responsible for them?

Very much looking forward to reading those, Steve. I've spent much time trying to catch up on this thread, and I'm dreaming of random murders. It may be almost refreshing to return to poor Polly.

Agreed! I was horrified when I first read of Mr. Patterson's theory here. I still think it is not as clear as he believes it is, but I did find that recent biographies of Thompson are not out there.
