    To me, Dusty, that doesn't make any sense. Leaving aside the problem that authorities don't normally act on rumours, why would a child 'being involved' prompt them to contact a doctor? If the rumour was that the child was sick then maybe (although any doctor could have dealt with a sick child), but just 'involved', no. And if Gabe was there because of a child why did he view MJK's body?

      One can always throw up all kinds of theoretical possibilities, of course, maybe Dr Gabe was involved in a secret sexual relationship with MJK, maybe he killed her, but there doesn't seem to be any point in airing them if they aren't credible and are unsupported by any evidence. The point I was arguing against was Simon Wood saying in his book that there is 'little doubt' that Dr Gabe was there because of a child, which is unsustainable.

          If that's intended to be a sensible post then the same could be said for Dr Dukes.

            Perfectly sensible. Even doctors are human. There don't have to be mysterious reasons for everything. Sometimes the answer is simple. He was nearby and curious.

              I can only repeat that the same could be said for Dr Dukes.

                Does anyone think the doctors were asked to ascertain if an abortion had been performed in that room?
                Did they always believe it was the work of the Ripper, even from the start?

                  The victim's uterus was taken out and placed under her head.

                  Abortion?

                      Abortion?
                      Of course it's a ridiculous idea, but until they got inside and saw more of the victim on the bed, wouldn't the first thought be a monstrous abortion?

                        All the newspapers described it as another Whitechapel murder, assuming it to have been committed by the same person responsible for the previous murders. I can't imagine that Dr Phillips would have thought any differently when he looked through the window and saw 'the mutilated corpse lying on the bed'.

                            My experience is that they do, but that aside your supplementary article negates some of my previous points. Good research.

                              We clearly have different experiences. But thank you Dusty.
