  • A Hypothetical Question.

    I’d just be interested in what you would say if you could go back in time and give the police investigating the case one piece of advice/guidance?

    Only 2 criteria...

    1. You can only use one sentence of reasonable length.

    2. You cannot point them in the direction of a particular suspect or theory.

    Regards

    take photos of every male witness(especially the dodgy ones) and viable suspects and show them to other witnesses.

      Don't be pussies and take a photo of the GSG.

        Spread some money around the prostitutes. Let it be known that you will pay for useful information.

          Create area checkpoints after Annies murder, funnel all local foot traffic through them, using extra constables assigned to cases.

            Good suggestions all. The one that I was thinking about was Harry’s about the GSG (whether it would have helped or not, who knows?)

              Protect all case and suspect files, future generations may make more sense of them.

              or

              Ensure a prolific police presence in spitalfields and Whitechapel from Friday to Sunday, particularly during the small hours.


              Considering the Murder locations took place in a such small area would the bottom suggestion have prevented them?
              or would it have changed history and would we be now discussing the Hoxton murders or whatever alternate location he chose?

                  Why didn’t I think of that?

                    And promptly get yourself arrested.

                      I would advise them to ask PC Lamb if, on entering the yard at #40 Berner St, or when near the deceased, or when investigating the back yard and surroundings, did he ever come across a pony and cart, and where exactly were they located.

                        I’d have questioned the horse just to check that it wasn’t a pantomime one.

                          Keep a list of the names of all people questioned in any capacity during the course of the investigations, and indicate specifically what it was that eventually led to the opinion no further information was necessary, so that those lists can be compared between cases. So don't just say "their answers were found to be satisfactory", but "inquiries at their place of work were confirmed by their supervisor (name) that they were present between x and y o'clock" type thing.

                            So please tell us how Lamb would have answered the question.

                              Were they pussies, or did people like Arnold and Warren have an irrational fear of the masses?

                              A photo of the GSG would have become one of histories most famous photos, but how do you suppose it would have helped, at the time?
