Objectively, Bury has to be considered the best named suspect. He's the only one whose circumstances fit the case. He was a convicted murderer with a similar MO/signature to the Ripper, and he was in the East End from 1887-1888. It's really as simple as that, people. Does that mean Bury was the Ripper? Far from it, I still have some healthy skepticism where he's concerned but the facts are stacked in his favour over other so-called suspects who rely on a lot of negative proof.

You're absolutely right Harry. And again I'm going to draw a parallel with Sutcliffe and say the Police in The Ripper case we're looking for someone Jewish or Eastern European when they should have been looking for an every day loser e.g. Bury.
