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.

Hello TC. Good question.

I'd like to know when John and Kate got back to London and what they were up to in the weeks before she was killed.

Cheers.

I'll dovetail Lynn's response and say I'd like to know if the 19 year old Thomas Conway involved in the Cleveland Street Scandal is in fact the son of Catherine Eddowes.

Personally, I'd like to know which of the 11 Whitechapel murders were committed by the same person/persons as the Modus operandi clearly differs/fluctuates from case to case.

It seems highly unlikely that they were all committed by the same party, there were clearly a fair few psychopathic maniacs in the area at the time.
