We're delighted to announce details of our next speaker for the Jack the Ripper East End Conference taking place this coming August:

Tom Wescott:
READING BETWEEN THE LINES

Ripperology is composed of many different but intertwining disciplines. New finds, photographs of people within the case, and outrageous theories usually receive the most attention. However, reassessing what we already have can also prove thought-provoking if not enlightening. Hard Fact is King and always will be, but what of logical inference? Sometimes a thing is notable by its absence. Sometimes a slight shift in perspective is all that’s needed to bring the past into focus.

Assistant Commissioner Robert Anderson’s views on the Goulston Street writing and what they might tell us about his credibility and the ‘ascertained facts’ of his suspect’s guilt. Chief Superintendent Major Henry Smith and how what he doesn’t say in his memoirs might offer the solution to an age-old debate about witnesses.

Israel Schwartz and why the police did not want him at the inquest, the curious circumstance of his disappearance from the inquiry mere weeks after the ‘double event’, and why we should believe that Liz Stride remained alive after ‘Broad-shouldered Man’ had fled the scene.

These and more intriguing possibilities will be the subject of Tom’s talk, to be followed by a Q & A session.

Tom Wescott is the author of THE BANK HOLIDAY MURDERS: THE TRUE STORY OF THE FIRST WHITECHAPEL MURDERS (2014) and RIPPER CONFIDENTIAL (2017). He will be appearing live from America via Skype.
