However it seemed prudent to look at all that was said.

And in doing so it has become apparent there are some major questions that appear not have been asked, and an inconsistency in the testimony of more than one witness.

To be fair I am going to start a new thread on this, given that it will go way off topic.

Hi Steve,

A good idea. Thanks!

Jack the Ripper probably lived locally, although I wouldn't rule out the killer living outside White chapel and venturing in to commit murders and gliding out again.

If he was to live in Whitechapel it would most likely be one of the lodging houses or in small, crowded tenements. He may even have lived with a couple of people such as friends/family or he may have lived on the streets a few days and then in temporary accommodation.

If he lived outside Whitechapel then it is likely he would have lived in a town/village/suburb with close links to the railway into London and made his way in through trains. I think it likely he may have lived in the inner suburbs of London if not in Whitechapel.

HI,

I donīt think so. The vast majority of serial-killers in the world using knives probably were not butchers or anything like that.

Is this 'just' because it does not fit with your theory it was a copper?

How many serial killers were able to remove organs without damaging other organs and do this comparatively quickly in low light conditions? Surely Jack had a certain amount of knife skills and anatomical knowledge... just my opinion that is all.

Isnīt this just rather easy to establish as an historical fact if there is data for it?

Has anyone seen any statistics for the percentage of butchers and the like among serial killers, preferably those who used knives?

And yes, I know he was extremely rare. But that would statistically just lower the chance for him to have been in a minor group among serial killers, at least I think so. I mean, how rare can you be?
