Hi Boggles,

I donīt think he was interrupted. I think the double event was planned to be performed exactly the way it was.

A reason as to why I donīt think so is that I can only allow myself to think he wrote letters before the murders containing facts only the killer could have known about.

And by the way, none of these letters matches the handwriting of the person I think was the killer.

We know the letters were written by an enterprising journalist as Anderson and Swanson tells us so 'Known to CID' Marginalia

no we don't. we only know that they thought they were written by a journalist. and given there track record I would surmise it was only a long after the fact opinion.

Thumbs down Books

Most of us have read some books written on the subject of JTR, and find the background information in them, which cannot always be found on this site, very valuable, even if we don't agree with the conclusions drawn.

I find it odd that Pierre chooses to completely ignore this source of information which could help support whatever it is he claims to have stumbled across. After all, in every paper and book on any subject, a list of books consulted is always given.

I wonder whether Pierre is in a situation where his access to books is limited somehow?

Best wishes

I've always said this was a real possibility.

Hello Jeff

We don't know. This was just their opinion.

Actually I think the quote was 'Known to heads of CID'

Which seems fairly unequivocal to me

It wasn't there opinion it was their job. Swanson was incharge of the investigation and not known for wild boasting, besides it was written to himself in the margin, you don't tend to lie to yourself?

So the letters being written by a journalist is the most probable solution.

I don't think they are talking about the Lusk letter however

Hi Jeff,

that is what I think might be the case too.
