Hello Sally. Two other possibilities:

1. the potboy did not recall--a pot is a pot; a house is a house.

2. potboys had high attrition rates.

Cheers.

I'm wondering if the pot was in the room when the kettle spout melted - if so, the pot might have called the kettle black.

Hardly Robert.
If the pot was in the room, it would have used more tact. The kettle would have been coloured, not black.

I think so.

I don't go with the idea that he wouldn't have been able to control himself as soon as in the room.

Quite clearly, he was able to control himself to an extent, which is why he probably wasn't caught.

If blotchy were JTR then he was aware of people coming and going at that time, just as Cox was aware of him. Would make sense to wait until around half one/twoish - as he usually did.

Clearly Blotchy took the pot back (per the Druid's example I gave of Brighton) or at least away else it would've been found at the scene (where does this roaming potboy thing come from?) ... this to me militates against his being the murderer...I think he was long gone ere killing time...

All the best

Suitable receptacle to carry away a heart though, doncha think?

I just don't see a drunk committing this crime...
