This (pus much, much more) from http://murderpedia.org/male.J/j/jesperson.htm

"On March 10, 1995, in Washougal, Washington, Jesperson strangled her. She was the only victim he had a link to, which ultimately led police to his trail.

Jesperson was arrested on March 30, 1995, for the murder of Winningham. He had been questioned by police a week before, but they had no grounds to arrest him after he refused to talk. In the days following, Jesperson decided that he was certainly going to be arrested, and after two failed suicide attempts, he turned himself in hoping it would result in leniency during his sentencing. While in custody, Jesperson began revealing details of his killings and making claims of many others, most of which he later recanted. Also, a few days before his arrest, he wrote a letter to his brother."

When is your book due, Dave? Or are you still set on a documentary film? Maybe we can crowd-fund it.

Still seeking a suitable screenwriter/production company.
Gets done right,or not at all.
Not overly fussed.

Spoke to one guy the other month.
Like others,wanted to change things without looking at the facts.
Grrr!

Will contact an independent production company in Hanbury Street when I get around to it.

Did you read those links?
Make sense?

The 1888 Lecture is very interesting,if you can source it.

I will check the links, though I think you may have posted them before on these boards.The only thing I found on my own was Sutton's obituary. People seemed to have thought very highly of him as a surgeon, medical researcher, teacher, and person. Must look for his lecture.
From clues I've pieced together from your posts, it could be a fascinating story.

The BMJ obituary is interesting if you take a careful look at it.

Collected works are on Internet Archive,if I remember.

The links posted link Stride to GSG,if you get my drift.

Can cross reference a lot of the cases.

Don't wish to create another Lechmere

What Jon mentioned, you'd take in other forms, a 7% solution, by injection, was it not?

I like the location and the name. If you are a fan of Sherlock Holmes and rock music you sound like me

I passed the doorway in Goulston Street last night, and someone had literally written the word "graffiti" on the shutters. A kind of "meta-vandalism", if you like, which I thought was rather nice. Unfortunately I'd left my phone in my hotel, so couldn't take a picture of it, and by the time I went back there this morning, the chip-shop was open and the shutters were up
