Mr Cates' book would be nice. As would a personal editing facility for Casebook, taking out all the jokes, insults and endlessly repeated arguments,entertaining though they are, leaving dear reader with the best info, insights and speculation.
All the best.

I would like to know which newspaper accounts were accurate and which were “ journalistic license”

And photos of Mary Kelly and Frederick Abberline would be nice too, just out of curiosity though, wouldn't help solve anything really

1. The list of suspects brought in for questioning over Stride.
2. The identity of the man seen by Mr. Galloway.
3. The identify of the man Cox was following.
4. The seaside identification of Kozminski.


What we shall see.

1. Touch DNA improving.
2. New paper articles on suspects and communications.
3. Better explanations.

That was what I meant by the obvious question.

Thing is, I think we'd hate it if we knew. What would we do next?

Nope no problems at all for me.

Well, we could rack our brains out trying to figure out who exactly shot and mortally wounded Governor elect William Goebel of Kentucky in 1900. Although there were arrests and trials, nobody was convicted and it's still up in the air. On the other hand there are probably better known unsolved murder mysteries than Goebel's (he did live long enough that day to get sworn into office - didn't provide a legislative agenda though ).

I'd like to see a full size study on the career of Francis Tumblety - not that I think he's the Ripper, but he is such an interesting character.

Still curious if there is any mortuary photo of Montie.

Photos of a living Mary Kelly, Inspector Fred Abberline, George Huchinson, Kosminski, Ostrog (I think there is one though), and a few others. Hell, I have never seen an actual photograph of Mary Pearcey - they always show a photograph of her old wax figure from Madame Tussaud's Chamber of Horrors as "her photo". it's not!

Ooh Jeff, bear with me while I search...

I might be able to help out on more than one of the above.
