Default Wish list

Apart from the obvious one, which question would you like to be answered.

Also, if one piece of evidence turned up, what would you like it to be. A photo of Mary Kelly etc.

I'd like to know what happened between Mitre Square and Goulson Street.

I want to know why we're still fascinated by these murders.

Evidence would be anything exonerating Francis Thompson as a suspect.

I'd like a parish register birth record of our Mary Kelly to be discovered (or a marriage certificate in Wales.)

It would be great if some evidence to turn up of who wrote the GSG. I would also like a police notebook/diary of Abberline's, covering the years 1888-89 to be found in someone's attic. That would be wonderful.

I'd like to discover George Hutchinson's diary, to finally find out whether he gave an accurate witness account. If he didn't, we might find out why he lied and what else he knew about Mary Jane Kelly.

Mac's Private information.

Where Deeming really was in Autumn '88

Where Kelly was

Why some people get so upset when you point out the flaws in their ideas

I will have to say knowing who told sir Melville about Druitt and what he was told and of course to know the real story behind the Maybrick diary.

Default More than anything else...

Since reading my first Ripper book in 1984 I've always wished that I had the final answer to whether Jack wrote the GSG or not. I recall discussing it at length and, on balance, everything seemed to me to point to yes. I was always amazed when I heard people say that Jack cut away a piece of Eddowes apron to wipe his knife! I also recall that years ago there was debate about which part of the doorway the message was actually on.
More than any other area of the case this one was always the one I had discussions/debates around. I've been away from the subject for a while so I'm not up to date on current thought or research.
Regards
HS

Given it was the weekend before the Michaelmas term and that GSG was well written,perhaps we have a lecturer on our hands.
Prolly a medical one.
The height indicates someone about 5"3".

I'd like clarification over this business with the ID at the Seaside Home. Did it really happen? Who was the witness? And was the suspect really Aaron Kosminski?
