That is exactly what I first thought when we discovered this....I even asked Mike, but after reading more of these documents it appears he is just rambling....i still think it's"possible" the questions are removed but not likely....the conclusion I came to is it was just a very nervous Norris, especially since his "homosexual" life was being exposed (however I believe he was more a, for lack of a better term, "hustler" who engaged in homosexual acts..but was heterosexual)....he always justifies his "relationship" by talking about all the money Tumblety spent on him....as if that shows he wasn't in it for "companionship"
again these are just my thoughts....as we will never know for sure....

I don't think there are any questions missing. It's the textbook definition of "spilling the beans". Immediately after giving the dates of the first incidents with Tumblety the questioning attorney says "Go on". There is an objection, which is over ruled, and the judge says "Q: Go on, and narrate what you were saying just now?" So neither the attorney for the contesting family members nor the judge seemed to mind his manner of answering this first question. As the deposition moves along it does fall into a chronological pattern of his encounters with Tumblety and there are more questions posed to help keep Norris on track, and Norris appears to calm down. So I agree with Brian that the way the first answer is long and rambling with no interruption from attorneys can be put down to Norris' nerves, and possibly the defense counsel caught off guard.

I don't dispute the suspects who saw the victims with suspicious characters. That doesn't make them Jack the Ripper.

I think I agree with you Ally.

Yea...sounds like a slam, or mock...but that is the term used for that (possibly what Tumblety had) condition.
.Ally seems convinced that is what it is...and that was my take on it as well...in fact when we first discovered it I said....sounds more like mico penis than hermaphrodite.....but the term hermaphrodite comes up more than once...so who knows....but the description fits (no pun intended) the condition of mico penis
