Bury never said that, did he? He never actually confessed to being the Ripper (putting the graffiti aside), he said he was worried of being suspected as the Ripper.

But Harry considering the Graffiti was clearly written by Bury or his wife. He's either confessed to it or his wife has labelled him The Ripper ergo Bury was Jack. Cheers

Perhaps she wrote the graffiti as a parting insult before hanging herself, fitting him up as an act of post-mortem revenge?

If Ellen was semi-literate, that might explain the "Jack Ripper" misspelling.

Can't see why not, except Inasmuch as accepting the possibility would require one to drop the idea that Bury was a proven killer. I realise that this could be problematic for some

If the letter Bury wrote in which he confessed to murdering Ellen is admitted into evidence, I don't give him much of a chance.
