Hi, Scott. What's this an allusion to please? I seem to recall that Harvey was born in Sussex.

The April 1891 census shows that Hay was one of three policemen staying at the Brighton Seaside home. This would have been close to the time (allegedly) that Kosminski was identified.

Interesting conjecture Scott, Ive always suspected that Harvey has more to his story. I wonder about Pearce in much the same way.

I was shot down when I raised this as an "idea" a few months back, which is why I don't post much here anymore. Too many angry people will slam you for raising points that should be considered and don't hesitate to ridicule you over it..that being said - this guy could just as well have been Jack. Ex-police just before the killings got started. Florid (blotchy) complexion....arrested 2x on suspicion of being the ripper:
George Compton
