I believe that Lechmere was Cross when he found the body.

Itīs nothing to be cross about - it happens.

Nah, just pulling your leg. However, it matters not who he was and to what degree he spent the evening bouncing like a ping-pong ball between identities.
What matters is that he had a couple of days before he made his mind up and went to the authorities - and every time he spoke to the authoritites, he was Lechmere, not Cross.

So regardless of how much and how often he was Cross (a totally unsubstantiated suggestion, by the way), he was ALWAYS Lechmere when he contacted or was contacted by the authorities (a totally substantiated suggestion, by the way).

Yup. This ain't scientific (for I am neither scientist nor historian) but a very quick search on the Newspaper Archive found 21 relevant references to Cross and 0 for Lechmere. Obviously you knew that. However, Cross wins 21 v nil.

Default Fisherman is right.

Pierre, given that you are a famous historian who has solved this case, given that you know who did it, and how it was covered up, why are you so obsessed with Fisherman and his Lechmere work? It should be absolutely irrelevant to you, and yet you seem strangely, bitterly obsessed. Wouldn't your time be better spent hunting down that final smidgeon of evidence for which you've spent over a year unsuccessfully scouring "the archives"?

At least Fisherman has the integrity to put his cards on the table, unlike you, you hypocrite.
Well said Henry Flower.
