Yep, there's Ed, showing the public where Crossmere was found leaning over the body. And that, ladies and gents, is how its done. All we need now is suspect book and its a done deal

I love the fact that his great great-granddaughter is wearing an Iron Maiden t-shirt! Now I got "Fear of the Dark" in my head!

Well, its a point for historical accuracy anyway - I'm pretty sure Iron Maiden were around in Crossmere's day...

Oh dear there's a photo of a lady and the caption:

Ripper suspect Charles Lechmere's great, great-granddaughter, Sue Lechmere, at spot where her ancestor was found with Polly Nichols' body in Buck's Row (Durward St)

Dear Ms. Lechmere, if you are reading this, your great great-grandfather Charles Lechmere was not a suspect in the Ripper case then, and Charles Lechmere is not a suspect in the Ripper case now. He was a witness in one of the murders. If you were given the impression he committed a crime, any crime, I am truly sorry. It appears you got roped into a publicity stunt, which could happen to anyone.

Roy

Roy,

I don't think that he was a suspect then but I'm not sure how you can deny that he isn't at least a person of interest now.

And it is probably in the descendant's best financial interests that she "thinks" her great-great grandfather was the Ripper. I wouldn't feel bad for her.

The Old Guard aren't comfortable with change.

Common sense tells you what happened. A policeman asked Pickfords "Do you have a carman by the name of Charles Cross employed here?"

To which Pickfords replied "Yes we do."
