An encounter that went bad and ended with a single knife cut. That's all this is.

"I do not think the deceased could have been dead more than twenty minutes, at the most half an hour. "

a doctor saying that a cut throat only takes a few seconds is only that-it takes a few seconds to cut a throat. It has no relevance what went on before or after and the nature of the encounter(stranger or domestic or acquaintance).

how you can take that statement to mean anything else is again a flight of fancy.

Hello Sam,

But think about giving someone the finger. You look directly at them and accompany the gesture with a curse word. Schwartz seemed to be saying that whatever the word was it was aimed at him.

Nor does the B.S. man killing her after being seen by Schwartz and the Pipe Man fit the scenario.

"Have you never heard of a squabble escalating to physical violence or even death? Nothing "convoluted" about that. On the contrary, it's a not-uncommon linear progression."

You are right, Sam it is not at all uncommon but it is usually accompanied by loud voices and shouting as well as the woman being slapped about. And if the weapon is a knife you would expect multiple stab wounds on the body demonstrating the rage of the killer. None of these things are present however in the Stride killing.

Re Fanny Mortimer: "I was standing at the door of my house nearly the whole time between half-past twelve and one o'clock this (Sunday) morning, and did not notice anything unusual."

Notice the "NEARLY THE WHOLE TIME" in her statement. She had a sick husband and I believe it was five children to deal with. So clearly she was not at her door THE WHOLE TIME.

Hello Abby,

Been seen doing what? According to Schwartz it was simply pushing a woman to the ground. So why go on to kill her after being seen?

Sorry c.d. I don't think Schwartz believed the shout was directed toward him.
A Home office letter enquiring about the progress of the investigation contains this about his statement;

"A statement has been made by a man named Schwartz to the effect that he had heard a person who was pulling about a woman identified as Elizabeth Stride 15 minutes before the murder off Berner Street took place, call out "Lipski" to an individual who was on the opposite side of the road. It does not appear whether the man used the word "Lipski" as a mere ejaculation meaning in mockery I am going to "Lipski" the woman, or whether he was calling to a man across the road by his proper name."

A report by Abberline seems to be a reply to this and says;

"I beg to report that since a Jew named Lipski was hanged for the murder of a jewess in 1887 the name has very frequently been used by persons as mere ejaculation by way of endeavouring to insult the Jew to whom it has been addressed, and as Schwartz has a strong Jewish appearance I am of opinion it was addressed to him as he stopped to look at the man he saw ill-using the deceased woman.
I questioned Israel Schwartz very closely at the time he made the statement as to whom the man addressed when he called Lipski, but he was unable to say."
