Given that a large part of the argument around Lechmere is: did he or did he not tell mizen another police officer wanted him in bucks row.
Such a statement backs Pierre and his theory, so of course he see Lechmere as a great witness.
Well I can tell you who I don't find credible at all, which is Schwartz and Hutchinson.
With Schwartz and Hutchinson, we have those standard reasons, and others on top of them: the implausibility of Hutch's story (applicable to Schwartz too to a lesser extent), and the fact that Schwartz is contradicted by others.
The only people Schwartz claims to have seen are Stride herself, BS Man & Pipe Man. He mentions nobody else as being in view. Stride is dead and either or both the other two may have been responsible for her murder. Who are the others who contradict him? You may find his evidence implausible but it is not contradicted as nobody else that I know of claims to have seen an attack on Stride in circumstances other than those he describes. No other witness claim to have seen the attack, so nobody contradicts him.
To a man with a hammer everything looks like a nail.
