Default Human Blood And Hair

The following article appears in the Evening News 16th Nov '88. Anyone know if there was any follow up info, or if there was any suggestion that some of Mary's hair was removed?

"HUMAN BLOOD AND HAIR.
The police at Battersea are in search of a man who is stated to answer to the description of the man wanted for the murder of Mary Jane Kelly. He was seen under somewhat singular circumstances yesterday afternoon. He entered a coffee-house in that neighbourhood, and displayed some hair, which is stated to have been human, with congealed blood attached. No one thought to detain him, but information was subsequently given to the police. It is understood that he left the hair behind him."

Good one Joshua.

GUT:

I know, which description? Probably the Hutchinson one they seemed to be going off of at that time in November? Or was it the thousands of other descriptions they were collecting and throwing to the wind?
