Thanks Roy,

I went with option 4. That doesn't mean that it's an over 50% chance with me, just that it rates higher than the other 3 choices in my view. All four choices are pretty good ones.

If I was going to rank the choices in order of likelihood, I'd say 4, 3 (probably someone she knew), 1 and 2.

I have gone for Jack the Ripper, based on the nature of the injury targetting the abdomen and private parts.

I'm sitting on the fence, Roy. (I don't recommend that!) I went for numero four, because I think we could be dealing with proto-Jack.

This case is such an enigmatic one that there are good arguments for and against all four options.

I had to vote a simple gang of men. I have no real evidence to assume Emma was lying. Of course A gang of men that included JTR would be my next choice.

No doubt. No wonder why Abberline turned to drugs!

A gang of men for me.


...that's what I voted, not a request

Voted for a gang of men.

The attack against Emma looks like some pimps wanted to make an example of her and one of them went too far with his "punishment".

I don't think that our Jack was among them but perhaps what he heard about the incident on the streets excited or inspired him in one sick way or another.
