I didn't really want to create a new thread just for this, so thought I'd just ask here:
What of Henry Tompkins the horse slaughterer? I know there was some slight suspicion about his movements on the night of Nichols' murder, but was there any further suspicion about him? Or was he sufficiently cleared?
I always found his comment about not liking women to be a little odd, not that that would incriminate him! but you get what I mean.
