G'day GUT hope you are well.

Cant find where I saw it (as usual) but it does mention it on this site.

https://stephendaroriinzion.wordpres...-from-leipzig/

Its to do with the ashkenazi having patronymic names till quite late and then had to change their names.

Its quite an interesting read if one is into names....

According to 3 senior officers at the time he was.

Therefore he was considered a very good suspect at that time.

You may not agree such is life.

To dismiss him so out of hand is to me short sighted.

Hi Steve

I dismiss Kosminksi because other than the supposed suspision's of the aforementioned police officers there seems to be nothing else to indicate Kosminski could possiblity be Jack the Ripper. Where's his record of violence? When did he commit a murder? etc.

Cheers John

But Kosminski is a better suspect than Lechmere. Although not a good suspect in my opinion.

He threatened his sister with a knife, John, and Macnaghten had reason to believe he possessed a "great hatred of women".

Critics of Kosminski often point to the fact that he exhibited no signs of violence while locked up, but if he had been removed from the necessary stimuli to provoke that side of him, would we expect to see it anyway?

Good post.
Koz has to be considered a valid suspect imho. He's mentioned by 3 police officials, lived in the area and the killings stopped when he was incarcerated.
And I do believe the threatening his sister with a knife no less is overlooked. I would also add that most serial killers don't have overt violence ( other than there murders of course) on there record.
