There were a number of mistakes on that thread.

And even harder to believe he somehow knew she had just been released"

I was actually connecting the dots of assumption, alluding to the slight possibility that Eddows had indeed been identified as the woman recently held and released from Bishopsgate Police station in the immediate hour after her murder ..Maybe even it was PC george simmons & PC Robinson who identified Eddows "to their superior officers" as the same woman they brought into Bishopsgate a "short" time ago "it was that of a woman who had been taken to the station by them a short time ago when under the influence of drink." And its most likely her "nothing" story was also included in the conversation .

(Echo) "A reporter, writing at two o'clock, said: - It appears that two City police-constables, who have seen the body, believe that it is that of a woman whom they had in custody a short time ago on a charge of drunkenness"
(Daily News) "Some information furnished by two City police constables to their superior officers yesterday morning supplied what is at present the only clue to the identity of the woman murdered in Mitre-square".

Moon .
I'm not sure there's anything that points to Robinson or Simmons seeing the body in situ at Mitre Square. Much more likely they were some of the "large number of persons" who viewed the body at the mortuary before Eddowes was identified. The Echo quote is from 2nd Oct, 2 and a half days after the murder.

Yes Josua , I believe it was the ID at the mortuary the press referred to ..
And this is the testimony that for me points to it being the same two officers that pulled her in earlier from the High st , and also gives us an indication that it was shorty after her murder ..
"The policemen, having seen the mutilated body at the mortuary in Golden-lane, expressed the opinion that it was that of a woman who had been taken to the station by them a short time ago when under the influence of drink."

Two things stand out .... "by them" meaning them that took her in (i.e.) Robinson & Simmons , and "a short time ago" .. Not "yesterday" or "couple of days ago" but a "short time" (a matter of hours)

A further point being , If the City felt the need for Robinson & Simmons to confirm it was the same woman .. Then there must have been other Bishopsgate officers in Mitre Sq that also voiced their concern about the dead woman's identity .. Otherwise why request Robinson & Simmons to confirm their suspicions .
