    So in all 3 cases i dont see any written evidence from any witnesses or police that any doctor needed their statements to help confirm those three things


    It was their and their judgement alone based on their medical experience to determine a t.o d. and in all 3 cases they were right .

    Now how they came to that conclusion you can debate that till the cows come homes ,im not interested in that as far as a scientific theory goes, that was never the question

    Only that when asked about time of death they were right . Simple .

    Still refusing to face up to the facts, how did they determine time of death? You can't just say "experience", lets them fix a time, medicine is not magic.
    The procedures used are in fact more important than if they are right or wrong.
    If the procedures are flawed then we are using guesswork, in this case supported by the police statements.

    That you are either unable or unwilling to see that, shows clouded judgement, and a poor approach to research.

    That you are not interested in how they reached their conclusions is no surprise, lets not lets facts stand in the way of a good story.

    You say 3 TODs are correct, how do you know that?

    The only evidence we, you have, are the police statement. You use them to confirm the TOD, just as the doctors must have.


    I am sorry but that approach is simplistic, and cannot be taken seriously

    The same modern medical experts also say that Eddowes could not have had her kidney and uterus removed as well as all the other mutilation done in 5 minutes in the dark?, are they also to be ignored in pursuit of the now common theory ?
    Many modern experts say it is perfectly possible, indeed it was even said at the time.

    But of course lets not listen to experts, lets go with any old nonsense, such is the way today sadly.

    The degree of arrogance shown in the above post that maybe they can't determine that theres two different scenarios being discuss is truly astounding.

      Welcome to my world Steve

      We are long past any thoughts of not understanding. This is a deliberate attempt to twist what we know to be true simply to support a discredited theory.

      On it goes

      • Dr. Frederick Gordon Brown ''The body had been mutilated, and was quite warm - no rigor mortis. The crime must have been committed within half an hour, or certainly within forty minutes from the time when i saw the body. that means 1.40am in case you cant work it out.

        [Coroner] How long do you believe life had been extinct when you arrived?

        Dr. G. W. Sequeira'' Very few minutes - probably not more than a quarter of an hour.' that aslo means 1.40 am.

        P.C Watkns discoverers Eddowes body at 1.44 am .

        So two medical doctors were right weren't they, if Eddows was killed between 1.35 and 1.45 . Now heres the part you dont understand because your to busy thinking about modern medical pathologist and how wildly inaccurate doctors could be and that they were little more than guessing when it came to time of death in Eddowes case.

        No where does Watkins or anybody else suggest to Brown and Sequeira that the body was discovered at between 1.35 and 1.45 therefor you must report t.o.d as between these times [ this is the only evidence that would suggest that the doctors relied on someone else for t.o.d , and it doesn't exist.

        So finally like ive said all along, its got nothing to do with modern medical opinion vs the doctors of 1888 , and everything to do with just this . when asked to give their medical opinion about t.o.d they were correct . simple ..... again

            So you accept the reason we can give approximate TODs in those cases is because of the police statements.

            You do not know what conversations took place between the police and the doctors, just because we have no record of a verbal exchange does not mean one did not take place. Its a might big assumption that the doctors were not aware of the time of the discovery of the body, you seriously think it was not mentioned to the doctors that they had just found a body? simply unbeliveble.


            It is all to do with medical science, that you say such is of no consequence displays a complete lack of understanding of the subject under discussion
            There was and is no method for esatblishing a death 40 minutes previously based solely on medicine or science, therefore any time given is simply guess work, that it was close to being accurate was either luck or more probably based on the police accounts.

            Again i ask you what methods could the doctors have used to arrive at their conclusions, that is the ONLY question that matters, if scenice could not provide a method, the TOD cannot be seen as being reliablebased solely on medical evidence.


            Debate is pointless when we do not accept the fact or approach with an open mind and a desire to learn.

              No I dont see what you mean at all?

              You are not listening to the experts are you? Modern experts tell you this is simply not possible and you ignore it, claiming that it does not matter how they arrived at their estimations, and it is clear that You have no knowledge of how this is done..

              You seem to believe that Doctors in 1888 could give Acurate TODs based on simply looking and touching.

              the only joke is the stream of threads and posts under your name,

                Neither do you. , and it does not mean it did,

                It has nothing to do with medical science at all , what i understand is this , that two doctors in Eddowes case, without any interaction that we know of with any witnesses or police accounts, got the time of death right .If it was luck they both got lucky on the same night ,with the same dead body , with the same estimate, what are the chances hmmm

                Again i ask you what methods could the doctors have used to arrive at their conclusions, that is the ONLY question that matters, if scenice could not provide a method, the TOD cannot be seen as being reliablebased solely on medical evidence.
                i think your a bit confused ,the method of determining t.o.d is not whats being discussed, only the fact is that the doctors where correct when they gave their time of death to the coroner when asked to do so. which was the original topic a longgggggg time ago now .

                No I dont see what you mean at all?

                You are not listening to the experts are you? Modern experts tell you this is simply not possible and you ignore it, claiming that it does not matter how they arrived at their estimations, and it is clear that You have no knowledge of how this is done..

                See now heres the problem with someone who just doesn't listen like yourself, you totally ignored what reference that was about

                So ill tell you again, its all well and good for people to use modern medical doctors to prove a point , but when the same modern medical experts , now pay attention here , tell us that Eddowes [not talking time of death here notice that] couldn't have her kidney and uterus ripped out in the dark in 5 minutes you refuse to accept that .

                SO the real joke is a cherry picker like you .

                  Watkins appeared before both Brown and Sequeria at the inquests. Sequeria not appearing until over a week after him, are you seriously suggesting that neither Brown or Sequeria were unaware of what Watkins said, or of the accounts that had appeared in the press?

                  Pity basic research is not carried out before making claims.

                  • Are you seriously suggesting that if the coroner had of asked Brown and Sequeira by what means they arrived at the time of death, that their response would have been because p.c. Watkins told us he found the body at 1.44 ?

                      Cant you ever get this point? You are probably the only human being in the entire universe that canít grasp the original premise!

                      TOD estimates were little more than guesswork at that time. They could be correct occasionally of course but they could also have been wildly wrong. Massively wrong. This is a fact Fishy. A fact attested to by book after book and medical paper after medical paper and modern forensic expert after modern forensic expert. Itís black and white. Itís beyond debate. Itís cast iron!

                      The fact that three doctors got three decisions apparently correct, even though they had cast iron pointers available to them, does not negate the entire history of forensic knowledge. Itís unbelievably childish and embarrassing (for you) to keep suggesting this.

                      Get a grip Fishy. Thereís enough genuinely debatable stuff in this case without wasting time arguing lost causes.

                        I am not merely suggesting, I am informing you that the doctors would have taken those police reports into account, it is standard practice, then and now.
                        If you believe they relied on some other means of reaching their estimation, please say what that was.

                        You see how they reached their conclusion is what matters, not simply that it appears to be correct.

                        Above all of course it demonstrates that:

                        "No where does Watkins or anybody else suggest to Brown and Sequeira that the body was discovered at between 1.35 and 1.45 therefor you must report t.o.d as between these times [ this is the only evidence that would suggest that the doctors relied on someone else for t.o.d , and it doesn't exist."


                        Is incorrect.

                        Of course, it's not the time he found the body, 01.44, but the time he was in the square before, 01.30 which the Doctors would have used as the longest period.

                          ''The fact that three doctors got three decisions apparently correct''. full stop hooray thats it , youve got it, no more to be said .

                          and they did it without any cast iron pointers . go read what they said at the inquest they make no reference to witnesses or police information when asked about t.o.d by the coroner.

                            Eddowes was killed on the 30th sept . Dr Brown gave his inquest testimony on the 4th October. At what point do you think Dr Brown made up his mind as to his estimate time of death of Eddowes ? 1, On the night she was murdered, right after viewing the body? 2 After waiting 4 days so as to compare notes with police reports and witness statements ? 3 or on the night ''AFTER'' he conferred with police and witnesses at the crime scene ?

                            Now it has to be one of the 3 , so which is it .

                            Comment


                            • At Eddowes' inquest Dr Brown initially stated that the crime, "must Have been committed within half an hour" of the time when he saw the body. Which is odd, considering that the victim was discovered by PC Watkins at 1:44-36 minutes before Brown's arrival at 2:20. However, he then instantly corrects himself, by stating, somewhat contradictorily, "or certainly within forty minutes." I wonder why? Methinks he immediately realized he'd made a bit of a blunder.

                                I am sorry to say that it does not need to be any of those 3 exclusively, the question shows little comprehension of how this work, in all probability it is a mixture of all.

                                If we look at the Nichols case, Llewellyn changed his mind on if the body was dumped or not, before he gave his inquest testimony.

                                I ask you again, if the estimate did not take the police comments into account, how do you think Brown came to his conclusion?

                                Please dont say "experience" because that is a nonsense, experience could not differentiate between 30, 40, 50 or 60 minutes. there are no medical indicators which would allow him to reach the conclusion, NOT my opinion, BUT medical fact !

                                Please do not repeat it does not matter; because it is the core of the issue, could the doctors give a reliable TOD in 1888, in the circumstances of the murders, based on their knowledge and skill?
