      Thanks Herlock. And you're absolutely correct about the impact of manner of death: "cut throat" can accelerate the onset of rigor:

      Condition of body:

      "Rigor mortis sets in quickly in thin built emaciated subjects and its duration is shorter in such cases. The more muscular and healthier the subject, rigor mortis will be more late to set in and long to continue."

      Cause of death:

      " Rigor will be eatlier to set in but shorter in durarion in cases of death due to tetanus, strychnine poison, in death preceded by violent spasms and convulsions as in status epilepticus, electrocution, lightning, or in case of death of soldiers after many hours of violent exertion in the battle fields, and in cut throat and firearm injuries." (The emphasis is mine.)

        If they were anything like modern GPs, he wouldn't know his ass from his elbow.

          Youíve actually managed to get to see a GP Harry? Living where I do itís a pain. Indiana Jones faced fewer obstacles when trying to locate the Lost Ark

          • One simple truth about Annies TOD, again....the cry and thud that were heard by Cadosche around 5:20 prove conclusively that there was no dead woman there at the time. The cry was heard from that same yard. So...no matter how desperately people claim that she was killed much earlier, that simple truth is enough to defeat those arguments.

              I agree Michael but the problem is that Fishy believes the Knight story which says that Annie was killed elsewhere and that two men carrying a mutilated corpse unseen from an unseen coach and horses and dumped her in the yard.

              • No here is the simple truth , codosch only heard a voice which i he stated he couldn't be sure which yard it came from , and the thud against the fence is not conclusive it was made by someone that was in the yard at that time .

                So herlock if you want to discard one other theory fine go ahead but there could be any number of other scenarios or possibility as to how and when chapman was murdered . you just cant see them.


                again according to what codosch said and dont change a single thing about his statement [ but you will] its its not a 100 fact that the killer was in the yard between 5.15 and 5.30

                  Again Fishy, Iíve never said that Cadosch was categorically correct. What we know is that he heard a voice but couldnít be certain where it came from. He was more confident though that the noise of something falling against the fence came from number 29.

                  And so of course you are free to dismiss this but isnít it at least suggestive (or even massively coincidental) that someone heard something falling against a fence in a yard where a body was discovered less than an hour later? Do you think that the police today would simply dismiss this?

                  • I would say any number of things could have been responsible for the thud in that hour .its a LONG time where thats concerned.

                      At 5.20am? In a backyard? With no one else having reason to be there? 40 minutes before a body was found? Itís not impossible that it was someone else of course but the odds are against it.

                        I was thinking more along the lines of something rather than someone , possible ?

                          Then the spray evidence on the fence, indicating an arterial breach, is what...she was cut there and gutted there. Why re-invent a perfectly reasonable wheel. And if odds are an issue, what are the odds that on both sides of Cadosches yard and fences that activity was happening around 5am.

                            Good point. And don't forget that it's not just the yards either side that we need to consider, but Cadoche's own back yard as well - so that's three yards with simultaneous activity going on. Even given that it was around getting-up time and people would be using the outside privies before heading off to work, that's still a bit of a stretch.

                            • from richardsons and cadoshes testimony its obvious she was murdered in the yard around 5:30. and we have another witness that more than likely saw her and the killer around that time in front.

                              and besides, even if she was killed elsewhere and then her body transported and dumped, the idea that she would be carried through a hallway and dumped in a private backyard is patently ridiculous and anyone who thinks that is either a moron or has alterior motives. probably the former.

                                Couldn't agree more Abby.

                                Im trying to picture the scene of two men carrying a mutilated corpse and getting to the side door of number 29 and finding it locked and having to go back to the carriage like Basil Fawlty and Manuel in Fawlty Towers.
                                What if they had found someone in the yard or coming down the stairs what would they have said - oops, sorry mate, wrong address? It would have been an insane risk.
                                Not to mention why did no one see a horse and carriage either in Hanbury Street or anywhere else. And what about the echo chamber of Mitre Square? Itís a bit rich when someone says that the killer wouldnít have had time to have done what he did but then to suggest the horse and carriage nonsense with 2 men carrying an horrendously mutilated corpse! It beggars belief.
