It seems thatís three corroborating accounts of a military connect.
How can all three be coincidentally mistaken/lying at the same time?
Totally agree. And thereís no reason that soldier couldnít also have been the ripper.
Now that being said any doubt IMHO of it being the soldier of the witnesses is that tab ram was killed much later than the time she was with him. And I havenít discounted the possibility that after she was with him, he left her alive and well and she was sleeping in the stairwell when the ripper came upon her. After all other witnesses stated that the stairwell was used for sleeping.
