Hi all,

The upcoming issue of the Whitechapel Society Journal will feature an article that reveals some of the probate court testimony regarding the estate of Francis Tumblety. I did not write the article, but I gladly shared the court documents with the author. It should be an entertaining read.

Sincerely,
Mike

I've read the article in advance, and it contains a surprising account in it. There was court testimony about how Tumblety was deliberately taken to a house of female prostitution. This occurred when he was widely known as a Ripper suspect. Interesting stuff.

Hopefully these new revelations generate renewed discussions about Tumblety's suspect status.
