  • "I think the attack is more like what Schwartz witnessed. A frontal blitz and slam followed by chocking her out and then probably going for the heart with the larger blade first as you pointed out. So if JtR were evolving he would do the front blitz again but as he is chocking her down, to inflict the fatal wound with his knife on her neck."

    Hello Batman,

    Schwartz only saw Stride being pushed to the ground. Nothing more.

    c.d.

      Yes and why inquests held back details.
      Bona fide canonical and then some.

        You've asked me that before, I think. The answer's the same; namely that, much though I enjoyed Tom's book, I disagree with him about Tabram.
        Swanson corroborated they held back sensitive facts in the inquest.
        If she'd been truly "ripped", I'm sure we'd have found out by now. One small cut on the lower body does not in a million years resemble what happened to Nichols, Chapman, Eddowes et al.... none of whom sustained anything remotely like the stab wounds rained down on the upper half or Tabram's body.

        Different killers entirely.

          Like I said, if Tabram had been beaten to death by a piece of a broken pallet, she meets the same victimology and her morgue shot is uncannily like Chapman's one.

          As for "truly ripped", I just see variations around this theme and what seems almost globally accepted in this case, in particular, that JtR clearly demonstrates escalation from stabbing to stabbing and mutilation to stabbing and mutilating and harvesting to all of that again plus more eviscerations. He never stopped stabbing.

          In modern crime scene investigations, Tabram would most definitely be considered the work of the same persons as the C5 just based on victimology, time and place.

          She was also posed.

            She was considered a ripper victim by the police at the time of the murders. Her injuries were not the same as the mutilations and organ harvesting of later victims but her throat and lower abdomen were attacked.

            Other reasons to consider her a JtR victim include:
            * she fits the victim profile.
            * her murder was in the same general time and area as the other victims.
            * she was attacked with a knife (or knives).
            * no evidence of rape or sexual assault.
            * she was posed.

            Against her being a JtR victim - the attack MO was different in part and less savage than other victims. In the context of escalating violence seen through the murder spree, this is perhaps a reason for including Tabram rather than discounting her as a JtR victim.

              That's exactly right.

              • He could have been a permanent local,but if a visitor,which I believe,he could have been related to Spitalfields market,although there are lots of possibilities.

                In 1682, King Charles II granted John Balch the right to hold a market day on Thursdays and Saturdays in or near Spital Square but became customary to also held it in Tuesdays.Later on for those willing to pay toll,it's everyday except Sunday.

                - there are three market days,there is a market everyday but the growers come on three days...on market days the market gardeners come.
                - you can send in things at 3 am till 5 in the afternoon.
                - Sellers paid 2 s per wagon 1s 6d per cart and some secure a place/stand always so consumer can remember the location.They pay by weight or stand or both.
                - Farmer or market gardener pay 1l a week 52l a year for a space/stand,sometimes they could have be 20 horses in a day.
                - Buyers,in summer,came at 3-4 am, costermongers 9 am.

                This work tied him up to Spitalfields despite the increased press/patrols/vigilante.There were 6 policemen looking after the market,paid,not sure of their duties,,but it dwindled to 3.Tabram's murder was a Tuesday and a first week of the month,which could have been significant.

                Clearly the first human laws (way older and already established) spawned organized religion's morality - from which it's writers only copied/stole,ex. you cannot kill,rob,steal (forced, otherwise people run back to the hills,no towns).

                  As strong a possibility as others that have been suggested.

                    Bingo. And she was found with her skirt raised up.

                          Personally, I think the strongest pointer in favour of a shared culprit may be the fact that both had knife wounds on their private parts.

                            Very much in the minority (understatement) in Tabram's case, as stabs were very much in the minority, if not absent, in Nichols'.

                              I think this is a fair assessment, although Canter pointed out that around 75% of serial sexual murder victims are posed and overkill occurs in 70% of cases.

                              Regarding whether the murder was less savage. Tabram waa subjected to what appeared to be a frenzied, and possibly prolonged, knife attack. Contrastingly, the other victims may have been taken by surprise and killed quickly, with the abdominal injuries inflicted post mortem.

                                I am not comparing cuts to stabs here, Gareth - I am saying that in both cases, the killer targetted the private parts and attacked them with his knife. That looks much like a signature element to me.
