Not a photograph but a different version of Mary Pearcy in a newspaper.

Thanks Jerry. When I read of Mrs. Pearcy in the book "Murder and Its Motives" by F. Tennyson Jesse, she said Mrs. Pearcy was good looking. This drawing is good enough to show her attractiveness - more (of course) than the head of the wax statue from Tussaud's.

Whilst I doubt we will ever KNOW ether answer.

We are I think more likely to know who than why.

I dont know after 120 odd years the who is still no closer and true nether the why but we have his work on show for us all to see I just think by that is there more chance if we place are mind within his as best we can could we gain an insight to the why?

Look at similar serial killers and work from there. Circumstances might change over time but deep down the human psyche remains the same. Let's not pretend that the Ripper was a special little snowflake.

Exactly! thats my thinking we can see the work of his will and by that we can look to the emotive content and work are empathy from there.

I agree, i think the excitement of it would disappear if people had proof of who JtR really was. People love the mystery of it, and it will never be solved.
(Hope that came out in the way i intended it too, always hard to express yourself correctly over the internet)

I'd also like to know what made Abberline change his mind about Hutchison being a creditable witness - if he did. He doesn't mention him again (that I can see) after their late night East End walks.
