I need to read more about this, but is there any discussion about the letter sent denying this murder was Jack? I cannot remember where I read or heard about it, but it seems to me that this letter could have been genuine, i mean, otherwise what is the point?
I've just seen a reference to two letters found before and after the Pinchin Street Torso was discovered, in an article from the Times 11th Sept 1889.
"Last week a letter was found at the rear of the East London Hospital, announcing the intention of the writer to perpetrate another murder immediately. The letter was handed to the police, but no importance was attached to it in view of the number of such documents which have found their way into the hands of the authorities. Last night another letter was found in Whitechapel, containing the following words:- "I told you last week I would do another murder." The writing of the documents has been compared, but the result is not yet known."
Anyone know if these letters actually existed, or are they the imaginings of an over-enthusiastic reporter?
