Presumably not pointing to how Annie Chapmans killer dressed down to his underwear in the Hanbury Street backyard - leaving us with the possibility that the killer of the Pinchin Street victim did so.

It sound a bit odd either way, does it not?

And the parcel would have been found quickly, Id say - so how do we account for the fortnight that had gone by? Did he keep them at home for all that time?

The find is interesting, but hard to fit into the frame. I was thinking animal blood, perhaps - but who butchers animals in his underwear and dump them in a public spot afterwards...?

Its annoying.

The shirt and pants were saturated with blood and the cuffs and collar only splashed with blood.

In regard to the September 8th clothing incident this may be relevant. Maybe not.
Oh I was thinking two weeks after the Tottenham Court Rd Torso dump, not in 1888. my bad. that is interesting so many years apart dumping in the same area

It does sound odd. As you know I feel the Whitehall victim was murdered around the same time as Annie Chapman, though. A man cutting up a torso in the private confines of his home/bolthole might do so in underclothes?

That's not true I'd say the parcel likely sat that for a while.
