" bearing in mind the assumption of many [ Not Me ] that the killer wrote or didnt write the message whilst having in possesion a lot more blood and gore than Cathy's apron .

Hi Moonbegger,

I suspect that the apron (along with any contents) was thrown away precisely because it was evidence - of the incriminating variety, which would assuredly have hanged him, had he been caught with it. If so, it would suggest that the supposedly incompetent police came very very close to catching him on this occasion.

Regards, Bridewell.

Hi Bridewell .. Is it then your suggestion that Eddows body parts were taken from her , then thrown away as the killer made his way through the london streets which begs the question " why take them in the first place ? "
