Sorry, Rock, I didn't mean for the question to be asked cynically, I honestly didn't know, haha, lot of details still jumbled up. The part about the midwife was just my speculation. What drew my interest, obviously, was the brown parcel paper and the disposal of the newborns in public locations and the similarities to the Torso Killer's method. One article went so far as to report how neatly the parcel had been tied up, but that wasn,'t always the case.

Many of the torso parts were wrapped in clothing (see Elizabeth Jackson's Ulster coat). The thigh of Elizabeth Jackson was wrapped in the pocket of what was thought to be part of a costermonger's apron. I'll have to look back to see how many of the parts (87-89) were actually parceled with paper. The Pinchin torso was found naked save part of a torn chemise.

"One officer states that the maker of the silk skirt in which the body was found has been discovered. The maker is the proprietor of a West End establishment. Having discovered so much, it is probable the person who ordered and received the skirt will be reached. Thus some sensational development of the case is anticipated."

Western Daily Press 9th Oct;

"Inspector Marshall, who has charge of the case, said the piece of dress in which the body was wrapped was of broche satin cloth, of Bradford manufacture, but of an old pattern - probably three years ago. It was a rather common material, costing about sixpence-half-penny a yard when new. There was a six-inch flounce at the bottom of the dress."
