    To me thatís clearly both the relevance and the reason.

    started a topic Davis' belt

    Davis' belt

    At Annie Chapman's inquest, a couple of papers mention witness James Kent as he describes being alerted to the murder by Davis;

    Times 13 Sept
    "While he was waiting there an elderly man named Davis who lived two or three doors off, came out of his house and said, "Men, come here." Davis had his belt in his hand."

    Morning Advertiser
    "While I was waiting there, an elderly man, named Davis, I believe, who lives two or three doors off, called to me. He came out of his house into the road two or three yards off with his belt in his hand."

    It doesn't seem to be picked up or even mentioned again. But bearing in mind Annie's signs of strangulation....is this at all suspicious?
