It's so weird how our minds are synced.

If you already know that, then how come you are trying to belittle me by calling Edward my "master"? Is it part of your effort to be on friendly terms with everybody?
Just being curious here, Tom.

Default Got the book

Hello Tom, got the book, halfway through it.

I really like your hypothesis how Elizabeth Stride got blood on her right hand.

This said, I have two things to say so far:

1- If Stride had indeed some handicap with her legs, it would be very interesting to search this deeper. None of her friends mentioned anything about it, none of the witness mentioned it; Schwartz and the policeman being the only one that saw her while she was not walking. I think it could be an interesting point validating/invalidating witness accounts. Of course, if she didn't, we're back to square one.

2- You mention that Bachert (I guess even I cannot spell his name properly) mentioned he was part of the Vigilance Committee before it was even implemented. This said, it remind me of something I research with my limited means: in Sugden book (page 19 and 345), he mention the St Jude's Vigilance Committee being formed after Tabram's murder and being in place as late as 1889 when they decided to give up. Maybe a better researcher than I could find something there.

Back to reading for me...

Back to reading for me...
Hi John, thanks for reading and sharing. There has been a fair amount of research done about the St. Jude's VC. Neil Bell and Trevor Bond come to mind. And I'm sure others. I have some stuff about them though it's been years since I looked at it.

As for Stride, although the name 'Long Liz' is probably a play upon 'Long Stride', that might too be a reference to the way she walked. The doctor found the deformity in her leg during autopsy so I hardly think the lack of friends mentioning it negates it. However, it probably played no part in her death. But it might have made her fall easier and so should be kept in mind when considering what Schwartz saw with BS Man. It might also have prevented her from running.

Yours truly,

Tom Wescott

You're right, that was uncalled for. I think I was reacting to the suggestion from someone else that I had your 'wrath' coming. Got plenty of that already.

As I have not read your book, I shall have to deprive you of wrath and praise alike.
The suggestion that there would be wrath from my side would probably have come from one of the posters who dislike the Lechmere theory to the kind of degree that has their judgment tapering off in such respects. I would not invest too much in their thinking, but in the end, that is of course your call, not mine.

When have you known me to invest too much in anyone's thinking? Aside from Debs, of course.

Hi Tom,

It's good to see that you're weathering the death of a thousand cuts.

Ripperology really is a poisonous, dog-eat-dog, decidedly no-win competition.

Regards,

Simon

No-win? What's that?
