    Any trace? The cuts would have to have been pretty precise to obliterate every sign of a ligature on the throat, and the ligature would in any case have left its mark on large areas of skin entirely untouched by the knife (e.g. the sides and back of the neck).

      However, that's 11 years too late for JtR.
      So we could be looking for someone who took MMA lessons between April and August, '88?

      I wonder if this man did:

          I don't think Tabram was a Ripper victim.

          • I could go on with the examples. There's an interesting account of a costermonger stabbing his wife in the 'lower part' - with a swordstick. Not a toff, a costermonger.

            While attacks to the 'lower parts' were rare, they were not so rare that two separate killers couldn't have inflicted them close in time and location.

                Were stabbings to lower parts that rare? I would think most stabbings would mostly involve a knife to the belly as the target area. Plenty of those.

                Nothing like acts on unfortunates' vaginas though.
                Bona fide canonical and then some.

                    All of those are rare, remember? Even if you have "on, in, near", together, that is still extremely rare.

                        Worsfold was an 'unfortunate' and the details of Fenwick's Old Bailey trial were deemed 'unfit' for publication.

                          Can you direct me to the source where it is made explicit that Tabram's wound to the lower part was to her vagina.

                            How do you know that?

How did none of the witnesses hear a struggle? The killer must have been proficient at choking out his victims. What can that tell us about his background?
                              What must be remembered is that albeit the first victim/s may have been taken by surprise, once we get a bit further down the victim tally, these later ones were acutely aware of how there was a madman on the loose who cut necks and eviscerated.
                              It is much the same as people on hijacked planes nowadays; after 9/11, there is zero chance that the passengers will not fight back. And so would the Ripper victims of later dates, if they had any chance at all to do so.

                                Which bit? She was described as an unfortunate in the press and here's the Old Bailey record of the trial:
