Default The Pink Panther strikes in Whitechapel

It'd be funny to have a movie with a clever Inspector (not Abberline, therefore) investigating the ripper murders and being more and more convinced, murder after murder, that there is no serial killer around.
Too bad Peter Sellers is dead.

I probably did, Jon. And knowing Ivor, he'd have given me a mouthful for my pains.

Trouble is, it applies to everyone who thinks they have cracked the case, whether they have a lone predator in mind or several individuals, each with different reasons for wanting to snuff out a specific Spitalfields unfortunate.

Without the kind of evidence that could have resulted in an actual conviction, all attempts to 'figure out' a solution will always remain just attempts, bolstered only by personal conviction.

Love,

Caz

DVV,

I cannot be 100% sure about anything in this case, but you do pose a question that leaves open questions upon which ever side one would choose to answer. Very nicely done.

As an item of fringe interest, I could of course offer the fact that when prime minister Palme was shot in 1986, one of the leading police investigators actually produced not one but TWO (2) "police solutions". Both Victor Gunnarsson and Christer Petterson were favoured by him, and he thought it a shame that the police was not able to put at least one of them away for the hit, apparently regardless of whom!

It makes me wonder how much stock we should invest in "police solutions" - some of them seem more directed to saving the behinds of the police than to finding the true culprit.

The best,
Fisherman

I also find it odd that it were more than obviously show in the polices own writings that they changed their point of view many times over, and that the most prominent of these seem to have written many different 'suspects' as their personal 'man who done it'. This is also evident in the coroners as well as they differ in opinion on how extensive the damage and who could have done it (ie) a butcher or someone with medical knowledge. Good post Fisherman.
