Thought I'd make mention of the Fairy Fay date quasquicentennial coming up this week on the 26th whether it's totally apocryphal, a mis-dated account of Emma Smith's murder, an exaggerated report of the Margaret Hames attack or Trevor Bond's Susannah Scanes.

I was just reading a press article on the Pinchin Street Torso (Times (London) Wednesday, 11 September 1889), and found that this gave a list of the alleged Ripper victims;

1. Dec. 1887 - Unknown woman found murdered near Osborne and Wentworth streets Whitechapel.
2. Aug. 7th, 1888 - Martha Turner found stabbed in 39 places on a landing of the model dwellings in George yard buildings, Whitechapel.
3. Aug. 31st, 1888 - Mary Ann Nicholls, murdered and mutilated in Baker's (sic) row, Whitechapel.
4. Sept. 8th, 1888 - Mary Ann Chapman, murdered and mutilated in Hanbury street, Whitechapel.
5. Sept. 30th, 1888 - Elizabeth Stride, found with her throat cut in Berner street, St. George's.
6. Sept. 30th, 1888 - Mrs. May Eddowes, murdered and mutilated in Mitre square, Aldgate.
7. Nov. 9th, 1888 - Mary Jane Kelly, murdered and mutilated in Dorset street, Spitalfields.
8. July 17th, 1889 - Alice M'Kenzie, murdered and mutilated in Castle alley, Whitechapel.
9. The woman whose mutilated body was found yesterday morning.

Was the state of journalism really so bad, less than two years after the start of the Whitechapel Murders, that they could forget one supposed victim and remember another that didn't exist?

The Pall Mall Gazette 10th Nov has a list of previous victims;

"No. 1 - Impaled with and Iron Stake
The first of the so-called Whitechapel murders took place at Christmas, when an unknown woman was found murdered near Osborne-street, Whitechapel. How she came by her death no one could say, but a certain grim horror distinguished it from ordinary murders by the fact that an iron stake was thrust into her person. It is necessary to mention this, because in the lists that appear in the morning papers she is confused with the victim of Easter Tuesday, Emma Smith, whose death was not caused by an iron stake, but by repeated outrage of the worst kind."
