Default Aprons R Us

Hello Colin. Indeed so.

Even better if he had worn an apron with knives affixed.

Cheers.

yup-him and puckridge (age may rule him out though). I believe neither have recorded as being cleared?

Default The Gingerbread Man...

Can't believe you people are down on the poor Gingers...

Has a ginger ever been tried and convicted of serial killings?

I know of none....

What are the percentages of Gingers in the population? How bout Whitechapel 1888? What is the likelihood the perp is a ginger, all things being equal?

Ginger's are nice people, I don't think they have it in their DNA....

Nah, I'm sticking with the maniacal Jew theory...dark and sinister...

well Gerry Brudos for one.

despite percentages, there seem to many around! and blotchy was (one of) the last to be seen with Mary, who was also a ginger.

BTW, Jews can be gingers too!

Default Ginger here....Ginger there...

In that case Abby I'm referring back to M. Wilson..

Too many gingers lurking about near the scenes of the crime for my liking

I wonder if the dim lighting often made light browns or dirty blonds look like gingers.........after all this is before Just for Men or Lady Clairol and we're not in Belfast.....

Greg,

That Jew in the picture is a ginger. Plenty of Jewish gingers and blonds especially since so many Jews are/were of non-semitic stock.

Ireland & Scotland have the highest percentage of red haired. 10% so I imagine London had a good amount of ginger

When it comes down to it, a genetic stroke of non conspicuousness can become a stereotype.

Wasn't Reg Christie a ginger? I read a report years ago that the red hair gene was dying out among the general population even in places like Ireland, which will be a great shame.

Was Piggot yet another ginger? Abberline seemed to think he was likely as the customer Mrs Fiddymont saw, but she wasn't able to identify him.
