3:00 AM: Sadler returns to the lodging house at 8 White's Row, heavily bloodstained from being robbed in Ratcliff Highway. The deputy, Sarah Fleming, turned him out, noticing he was so drunk he could barely stand or speak. He protested. "You are a very hard-hearted woman. I have been robbed of my money, of my tackle and half a chain." - from casebook

Sadler is illustrated wearing a neckerchief. Hutchison said his suspect wore a visible chain. Other witnesses described JtR as wearing a red neckerchief.

What is his tackle? The knife?

Sadler bought a dull knife the same time Coles was murdered with a dull blade.

Sadler killed Coles, I agree.
