Profilers have placed him as living in the Flower and Dean street vicinity. An average ordinary workman.
He made no sound which suggests instead of heavy hobnail boots he wore soft soled shoes.
One of the professions I have put foward for him is an offal dresser. They can removed the offal from an animal is less than a minute. It requires certain knife skills, is monotonous work and desensitises blood and guts.

The victims had to survive in appalling conditions, they managed to get by, have relationships, get drunk sometimes, have rows. They were no more or less vunerable than anyone else in the East End,probably better off than women who were regularly beaten by their partners or husbands. Life in the East End was dangerous for all women.

Miss Marple
Bingo. and I like your suggestion of an offal dresser.

In other words, methinks JtR was a maurauder, not a commuter.
