Interesting Kattrup. What first led you to this suspect?

Good luck with your research and looking forward to hearing more!

The ripper murdered women,so that eliminates him?

I have a feeling, Steve, that the reference "Larkin" may lead us to what kind of suspect our learned Danish friend has in mind. Plus I have another feeling that it is a tad ironic that I am the one pointing it out.

There is a very, very, very, very small chance that I am wrong on it, though.

Researching murders of women with cut throats. There wern’ That many in Denmark.

When I later was shifting through Danish Foreign Mimistry correspondence in the Danish national archives, looking for Charles Grande, one of the case files concerned one of those unsolved murders. An inquiry into the circumstances of this guy’s suicide.

Sorry, I just meant he confessed to a specific murder, that does not rule out that he murdered others

How small is a very very very very small chance?

Larkin is Edward Larkin, who was perhaps the first ripperologist. He thought JtR was a group of mainly Portuguese cattle drivers, because he’d matched the murders to the arrival of various ships.

What was going to be revealed in 2030? Was it something to with there being another suspect or more conclusive evidence as to the actual victims?
And there have been so many books written about JTR, that revealing the name and having a case closed, would kill the cash cow of authors and aspiring authors. JTR has been quite a cash generating enigma over the last 130 years.

And here I was, thinking you were displaying a sudden drastic sense of humour! It´s Larkins, not Larkin, Kattrup.
