Hi Catvance and welcome to the boards,
The picture of Mary kelly in her room at millers Court does not appear to be doctored but slightly enlightened.

The alleged "FM" on the wall however are little more than blood spatter from her body.

The images can be seen on the "Victims" section just to the left of your screen, or perhaps try the "Photo Archive".

Good luck, and once again welcome.

Catvance - congratulations on an excellent enquiry.

Personally, I see the FM clearly in the Diary and can't see it with any degree of clarity in any other print of MJK1 & MJK2 (the names we give to that infamous image). I have therefore always doubted myself that the print in the Diary is untampered.

Hi catvance and welcome-

Here's the ubiquitous Diary pic with the alarmingly readable FM (especially if you narrow your eyes!)
Name:  FM.jpg
Views: 18072
Size:  65.9 KB
But try and squint as I may I've never seen anything comparable in any other MJK1/2 anywhere either ...I agree with Philip......a clumsy tampering!

Now an idol of Baphomet??????.....OBVIOUS!

I don't see any tampering here, Philip. I can see the FM or fM quite clearly in the print that Rumbelow found. Well spotted by the forger(s) I'd say. What I like is the Frosty the Snowman face at the centre top of that picture.

Sorry if this is an ignorant question, but if there was actually anything to this, what exactly is "FM" supposed to stand for? Maybrick's first initial was J.
