The closest I can think of is Gwendolyn Graham and Catharine Wood who were quite different types of serial murderers. They do however prove that women can be sex killers.
Hi Stan,
I dont believe there were a pair [or three for that matter].I think it quite likely that Emma was attacked by the man she was last seen with in Burdett Road at 12.15 pm.Where they went after she had been seen there is anybody"s guess but it apparently wasnt to any place or along any road where the police would have seen her,like she made out.There were numbers of PC"s on their beat along the route she said she took-----but no one saw her.Why?
Best
Norma

Hi Natalie,

Enjoyed your Rip article.

You propose the fatal assault took place out in Limehouse. As Mr. Observser said, it's a ways to walk from there back to Spitalfields. And in her condition. Will have to ponder that one.

I thought about Burke and Hare but, as I recall, Hare was more involved in the murders than just a lookout. Burke was the more involved - there's not much question about that.
