  • Geoprofile of Jack the Ripper reveals Tabram and Nichols connection.

    I decided to map a modern geoprofile of JtR onto an old map of Whitechapel with markers for important events including the Canonical Five.

    THE MAP
    Modern Jack the Ripper Geoprofile old Whitechapel map here.

    JtR could not have anticipated geoprofiling which was discovered in the 1990s, a century later.

    The geoprofile is a simple mathematical model that makes two assumptions.

    • That the perp will not commit crimes where they live.
    • That the perp will not travel more than they need to find a target.

    In order to cover their identity, serial offenders will try to hit in many directions away from their ‘base’. They accidentally reveal their ‘base’ because it is possible to triangulate this place. This is not too different from when policemen put pins on a map. It just has added mathematics.

    This is a lead in the JtR case. One of the few we have.

    The Hot Zone
    The reason why it is so interesting is that the geoprofile reveals a hot zone which is of huge interest to researchers even before geoprofiling was done. In fact the hot zone is bang on top of well known JtR related events and places.

    The area of the hot zone in the geoprofile is where Flower & Dean meets Lolesworth street. It also takes in Thrawl St. and a bit of Heneage St which means a bit of Brick Lane.

    Close up of hot zone map here.

    The Hot Zone Content in Relation to the Case
    In the hotzone are the markers A, B, b and I on the old map of Whitechapel under the modern geoprofile.

    These correspond to:

    • A – Satchell’s lodging House, last addr. Of Martha Tabram.
    • B – Willmott’s lodging House, last addr. Of Mary Anne Nichols.
    • b – White House, Public House, last addr. Of Mary Anne Nichols.
    • I – Frying pan, Public House


    Martha Tabram is a JtR victim
    Martha Tabram was murdered just below this area in George’s Yard. There is no point anymore in considering this all a big coincidence or that Tabram isn’t a JtR victim. This tells us that the C5 should be a C6 and Tabram included.

    Other connections
    Flower & Dean st., was also where Eddowes was supposed to be returning the night she died according to her partner Kelly. Note that Fashion St., where she gave a ‘fake’ address is slightly within the red hot zone and certainly within the green. Not far away to the top left of the area we have the murder of Mary Jane Kelly on Dorset St.

    Murder series in relation to the hot zone
    • JtR “started” murdering close to where he was with Tabram.
    • JtR “finished” murdering close to where he was with Kelly.


    To draw attention away from the hot zone with the murder of Tabram, JtR murdered his other victims in all directions north, south, east and west of the hot zone.

    It can not be excluded that JtR met many of his victims in the hot zone.

    It can not be excluded that JtR may have taken many of his victims from this area.

    Even Catherine Eddowes had time to go back to Flower & Dean to get thrown out and be back in time for Mitre Sq.

    We must also consider that the movement of these unfortunates may not correspond to looking for money in return for sex, but the promise of lodgings. A place to stay the night. JtR may very well have been a lodger out on the street with them or someone running lodgings and taking them elsewhere.

    Focus
    Pubs and Lodging houses in the hot zone, Tabram and Nichols connection with a focus on Tabram appears to be the path to revealing the identity of JtR.

    What else is associated with this hot zone?

    A few people argue that, but I'm not one of them. To my mind, there's no way he could have missed the body.

    Doesn't a 5:30 killing put Dark Annie on the streets alone for over three hours; I wonder what she was doing; where she walked? Evans (Donovan) escorted Annie out of the lodging house around 2 AM, where did she go?

    She had to be circling, Whitechapel isn't that large; how may times did she cross paths with the Ripper before he chose her?

    At any point did she crawl off into an ally and catch some zzzs?

    It is hard to figure, she was up all night, ending her already long day with a three and a half hour walk, and then come pre-dawn she still has the energy to score a trick.

    Can John Richardson sit on the stoop's top step and miss Annie's body laying (behind the backyard door) to his left. If he could, then Annie could have been murdered any time after 2:30 AM.

    Dawn was at 4:51 a.m., sunrise at 5:25 a.m., so I would humbly suggest that this is not a proven 'fact,' and is, indeed, very much in doubt. But we're a tough crowd.

    I agree, pass shoddy even.

    He has the Chapman date correct but the events surrounding the discovery of the body and the timing belong to Polly Nichols, at least in the first paragraph. Then in the second paragraph he correctly places Annie at 29 Hanbury Street.

    This is a very big mistake and discredits the report.

    For what it is worth this thread is 100+ replies in so I am not sure if the Keppel's report has been posted. So here it is (maybe again).

    There is a typo on Table #2, page 18 and one factual error on page 9, (a "2:20" discovery of the apron) otherwise it is an interesting article.

    A HITS evaluation supporting the Tabram connection is on page 17

    Perhaps Spitalfields flower market/fruit auction entrance in 1888....

    "young photographers Mark Jackson & Huw Davies set out to record the life of the market that operated on this site for over three centuries, before it closed forever in 1991."

    Was curious about fruit auctions...so below so far I have found...
    So the possible killer's auction dates were end of the month or first or near/until 8th of the month then resupply/come back.

    Flower auctions page 590

    Fruit auction/auctioneers page 136 - 137 although in US/1907, should be similar.

    Only image so far I found on fruit auction,1901,although Covent garden,was more high-end than Spitalfields market.

    In 1888 only 2 trips to Hamburg/Harwich per week not 3 as in 1892.

    Bradshaw Continental Guide, September 1888

    Depart Liverpool Street Station at 8 pm,leaves Harwich at 10:00 pm to Hamburg every Wednesday and Saturday
    Return from Hamburg Wednesday and Saturday evening. (27-28 hours)

    In any case so my belief it was an apple/fruit salesman/seller from perhaps Altes Land or Calvados/Normandy - big apple producers,or buyer,
    per Robert Horner's/Brigg's testimonies,fruits/samples - principally of foreign consignments,auction opening on March 1,1888 whichever fruit was in harvest.


    Happy New Year all.

    Regarding Robert Horner's statement above "The great bulk of the samples of fruit,and so on,come up by the Great Eastern via Harwich from Germany and France..' the routes from France sort of did not make sense.
    * He had 20,000 tons of potatoes,2000 sold to America,the rest to anybody including Spitalfields Market buyers but had lots of competition.


    Harwich (Parkeston Quay) to London 6x daily 5:00 am (for steamers arriving from Rotterdam and Antwerp) 7:55 am 9:58 am 1:00 pm 3:10 pm 5:40 pm


    - From Germany 3 routes to Harwich then to London:

    Rotterdam to Harwich to London, daily except Sunday, depart 6:15 pm to 5:00 am arrive 6:50 am - 12 hrs 35 min

    Antwerp to Harwich to London daily except Sunday depart 5:45 pm to 5:00 am arrive 6:50 am - 13 hrs 5 min

    Hamburg To Harwich (steamers), Harwich to London, 3x a week depart 10:45 pm - Tue/Wed/Sat - 27 hrs 50 min
    (this route including from Altes Land near Hamburg)

    - From France it did not go to Harwich,Great Eastern did not pass Dover,Littlehampton,Newhaven,Folksetone which were/are across/destinations
    on England from France - Calais,Honfleur/Caen,Dieppe,Boulogne/Calais respectively.There was also a St. Malo to Channel Islands to London route.
    But still probably end in Liverpool Street station London and carted to Spitlafields market 4/few blocks away.
