I'm not sure I follow the logic here....as far as is known there was no-one up the street at the time, and so no-one to report not seeing anyone...

the logic being from the point of the "ghost killer":

if there was a ghost killer, then Cross interrupted him when he walked onto Buck's Row. The killer has many options at this point; but, in terms of an escape, he has two - left or right. He doesn't head away from Cross because no one up the road reports seeing him; and he doesn't walk towards Cross because Cross never reports seeing anyone pass him (or else that's the HUGEST oversight in this case!).

We could say that there were others that could have passed up Buck's Row before Cross, but that suggestion creates all this other traffic who "happen not to see" poor Polly lying dead on the road.

So, with NoOne being reported passing up the road in either direction, that leaves 3 solutions: 1) NoOne did it; 2) Jack's bolthole was on Buck's Row and immediately near Polly's murder site; or 3) Cross did it.

Not sure that follows at all. Why would anyone see someone leaving the site. No one saw Paul or Lechmere eithe.

Just a reminder that the Double event in no way concerns Cross or Lechmere, and to Steve, perhaps the difficulty explaining which incisions are preferable can be circumvented by first determining whether the actions represent surgical technique vs dissection technique. I have a book concerning Autopsies in the Victorian Era, with a few chapters on the methods that medical students were trained in dissection.

In that book I have a picture of a student group posing around an operating table with a cadaver on a gurney. That figure is the closest image I have seen to what is seen in the MJK photos.

After Annie, they sought medical students. Perhaps that's why.

Default It depends on the language...

Actually, I do not have a single book where the pages won´t turn from left to right. Do you?
The Hebrew-language book that recently appeared at my library office is read from back to front-- that is, pages are turned from right to left.

Most English and other Western European language books are read from left to right, of course.

And individual pages will turn either way, as any confused student who is backtracking to re-read something already passed in a text, will attest.

Hi Michael

Valid points. If there is any technique display it is certainly more disection than surgical I would suggest.

Can we not just settle for acknowledging that just as the pages in a book can be turned to ONE side, they can also be turned to THE OTHER side? I was never implying that there was something written on both the in- and the outside of Nichols´ abdominal wall, but rather that it had been folded from one side to the other - like a page in a book.
