Hi David,

Please don't wag your arrogant finger at me.

Right, okay, so we've had "Pigott's itinerary" and very interesting it was. I do always love reading railway timetables. Is that it now? Do you have any actual reason to justify your use of the word "alleged" with reference to Pigott's suicide? Or can you finally admit that he did, indeed, shoot himself?

Hi David,

Pigott's "suicide" must remain alleged until more reliable information about his death is at hand.

Regards,

Simon

It's only "alleged" in your mind Simon - and for no good reason that you have been able to offer.

But one question you can answer: Why have you mentioned it in your book?

I mean, what does his death have to do with "Jack the Ripper" or the Whitechapel murders?

Hi David,

Absolutely nothing that I know of at the moment.

But it may have to do with what the Whitechapel murders were really about.

You never know.

Regards,

Simon

So, two answers to the same question. The first has the benefit of honesty, the second is mysterious.

How may it have to do with what the Whitechapel murders were really about?

Hi David,

I don't know.

Maybe something. Maybe nothing.

As I said, it all depends on what the Whitechapel murders were really about.

Regards,

Simon

So your book doesn't tell us what the Whitechapel murders were really about then?

Hi David,

I never claimed it did.

But even if it did, nobody would believe it.

Ripperology's funny that way.

Regards,

Simon

What does the following mean then:

"there was certainly some sort of high-level cover-up going on, for there is much to suggest that, rather than a linear mystery, the Whitechapel murders were a series of discrete events, with a quasi-supernatural Jack the Ripper used as an umbrella device to explain things away whilst whipping up a diversionary scare." ?

What "things" do you think were being explained away by this "diversionary scare"?
