No. It was random bad luck.

Reckon Eddowes approached Jack for a blackmail handover that night with Stride and BS man ( a Royal Engineers sapper named Carter) at a mutually suitable venue.
She used a part prepayment, got inebriated and mucked up.
When released and unaware of Stride's murder she returned to Jack's bolthole for her share.
In explaining her absence and that she gave the police an alias,Jack was told of "nothing". Hence the GSG,a red herring to draw police away from his secondary residence backing into Mitre Square.
As Jack's arrangement was primarily with Eddowes,he might have been wary of BS man with Stride.
Carter was depending on the blackmail handover for payment and became "shirty" with Stride. He then left.
With only Stride to contend with,Jack approached with medication for her
hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (bottom lip).

I guess that's why the word blimey was made.

That's the way I feel about a broad shouldered cheese monger,a plumber with a military bearing who was unlikely to have been unemployed , let alone someone waiting in the dark corner of Mitre Square for a random victim

I'm not aware that anyone believes that he did, anymore than they believe that he crouched in wait in the back yard of 29 Hanbury Street or hid in the wash-tub under Mary Kelly's bed.

Somebody quite recently suggested the first.

Never thought of the wash-tub
