I voted no, on the basis that the killer did not take advantage of doing the same in Millers Court, when he seemingly had ample time to write on walls, and had a surplus of body parts to take with him to post to all and sundry. In fact, if he had nothing to do with the Lusk kidney and the GSG, he wasn`t even inspired by the headlines that followed the double event.

I think he did. Maybe that's my naivety talking, but I tend to see connections, rather than coincidences. I think JTR writing the graffito is the simplest connection here. Jane x

I think it unlikely and voted NO, The graffiti always over shadows the important evidence in my mind..

i.e. the piece of apron, the direction of the killer and why he felt safe pausing there....probably heading down Wentworth St and then back across the Whitechapel Rd.

I think it is a simple answer too Jane. I think I can also see literal meaning that relates to The International Mens Club and the murder there.

I dont think the apron was there until almost 3am....and thats really why I see contrived vs coincidence.

Cheers Jane.

Default Hello Michael and Pirate Jack..

I don't say it means I must be right, I don't think I'm qualified to say so just yet! - but it just seems to me to be asking a bit much of co-incidence? Whilst accepting it could be, I tend to lean towards the thought that all three events are interconnected, personally.

Jane x

Hi Pirate,

What I was saying is that I believe its possible that Jack the Ripper didnt kill Liz Stride, but did kill Kate Eddowes. I think he took his "take" from Kate somewhere to store it and came back out to put the apron somewhere. I think he decided to suggest that the men at Berner Street were evading responsibility for Strides murder, and Jack felt that they were probably the real guilty party. I wonder if the Model Homes housed any International Club members.

Of the 2 physical pieces of evidence that exists from the Double Event, the apron section, and the section of kidney that was possibly Kates later sent to Lusk....neither has any connection or reference to the earlier murder.

But I think the GSG does.

Cheers mate

Michael,

Unfair. If he had time, maybe he would have had something to connect. Also, we don't know that he didn't take something from Stride to leave at Eddowes scene. It's entirely possible.

Cheersm

Mike

Why the hell would he? He's murdered. He's out of there. He's headed for wherever. Why would he pull a piece of chalk out of his pocket and start writing cryptic crap? Jack was a busy boy. Goulston St wasn't Jack.

Mike (the good one) writes:

So, Mike, he just happened to pass by Dutfields yard where Stride lay dead, and popped in to take something from her and brought it with him to Mitre Square - and nobody saw it happen?

How odd!

slightly provocative - ever so slightly...!
