yup-absolutely. and that she was found with her skirt raised up above her waist.

Just as if Polly Nichol's murder took place between Eddowes and Kelly's murders - we would have serious doubts it was the same killer.
If I read that right, you think a lack of sophistication or skill sets would likely discount Martha if she had been killed after Annie, yet you discount the measurable drop in skill sets from Annie to Kate as being relevant to a "Canon" designation.

If Pollys murder took place between Kates and Marys, it might have delineated the line between the "series" a little more obviously, since Marys murder cannot be considered anything but a departure from the killers' behaviors seen in Polly, Annie and Kates murder.

I think the striking similarities between the method of acquisition, the initial attack pattern , and the abdominal focus once the victim lost consciousness with Polly and Annie must lead to a conclusion that they were almost certainly killed by the same lone man. Some of these elements are present in Kates case also, but in Liz and Mary we have dramatic departures from the preexisting cases.

And none of these murders were done by someone who stabbed victims with penknives.

I've finally made time to read Trow's book on the Torso murders, and in a chapter describing Jack's victims he says the following;

"I personally believe that Jack killed seven times, although his first attack, on Martha Tabram, may have been carried out on a woman already dead."


I haven't read any further as yet, but is Trow suggesting that Jack came across an already murdered Tabram and decided to add a bit of his own work?

If nothing else, it would explain the apparent use of two different weapons.

possible but highly doubtful. if anything he came upon an already passed out tabram and attacked her.

and its pretty much well known that when engaging in the sex act it was done standing up. so no reason to leave a victim with the skirt raised up to expose the abdomen unless it was because the killer wanted to deliberately do it.
If she's slumped on the floor and her body has been frenziedly stabbed, her clothes are bound to be in disarray. And in the "canonical" cases the skirts would've been raised to mutilate the body. Might be a signature trait, I don't rule it out, but you could be reading too much into it.

hi Harry
no I see what your saying-just too much of a coincidence to me.
