Hi GUT:

I meant 40% likely. It wouldn't let me post just 40% because it said my message was too short. Apparently there's a 5 character minimum.

That's why all my posts end 'Yours truly, Tom Wescott'. So now I have only a one word minimum.

Yours truly,

Tom Wescott

Yes it does. In private communications he makes me sign off 'Your Bestie'. I'd better be the only one!

Yours truly,

From a methodological point of view I've been critical of Tabram as a Ripper victim. I couldn't reconcile how the killer transitioned from frenzied stabbing to throat-slicing and abdominal slashing in the space of a few weeks. However, this is potentially faulty reasoning that supposes the murders must have followed a linear progression. Tabram's was the first in a series of knife-related murders & assaults in Whitechapel that year. Statistically this type of murder was rare in London, let alone a corner of the East End. For all these grisly crimes to be localized in the same area certainly lends credence to the idea that most of them were carried out by the same individual(s).
