    the disturbed explanation is not a credible explanation having regards to what is suggested the killer then did after failing with stride

    Hi Trevor. Thanks for the reply. I am new really to the case in relative terms(guys and gals on here been studying for years) so I am trying to be open to all sorts of possibilities. However I don't see how the organs not being removed by the killer proves it wasn't by the same hand? Polly Nichols was slashed around the abdomen, Annie Chapman and Catherine Eddowes were disembowelled and Mary Kelly was ferociously mutilated all over her body and her abdomen lay open. Liz Stride there seem to be mitigating circumstances in that it appears the killer was disturbed. It seems to me that the organ issue is a red herring.

      i think you are still missing the point Brown stated at least 5 mins so you cannot safely work with 5 mins as an exact working time and you cannot rely on his experts time because we no nothing about under what conditions this took place.

      furthermore if it takes a modern day expert 4 mins just to effect removals there is no way that given the crime scene conditions and the condition of Eddowes body the killer could have effected those removals in the time suggested.

      notwithstanding the extra time needed to carry out the murder rifle the pockets and to walk into the square

      Hi Trevor,

      Your experiment indicates 4 minutes, negating Brown's estimate. Your experiment also does not employ a serial killer. So it tells us a non serial killer can remove the organs in 4 minutes. After that, the differences become so large that all we can reliably take from it is that the 3-5 minute window we have been debating is reasonable, and the unaccounted time window is at least 6.

        Hi
        Those actions in my opinion show a propensity towards nothing more than murder and mutilation

          I am sorry Jeff but you are way off track it tells us that it takes an experieced modern day medical expert working quickly 4 mins to open up an abdomen and remove a uterus and kidney in the same way the killer is supposed to have removed them at the crime scene. There is no way a killer or anyome esle in 1888 could have carried out those same removals in that same time it would be impossibe and this experiment proves that.

          The medical expert had everyhting going for him light, proper equipment surgical gloves to aid the removal quickly, light to be able to see what he was doing, a body laid out on a table to be able to work on, none of thse were available to the killer, and I must remind you again that Brown states at least 5 mins add to that other relevant times and actions the killer was responsible for at the crime scene and you run out of time, and not forgetting the degree of difficulty there would have been in trying to work in a blood filled abdomen with a long bladed knife

            That's one assumption but we don't know that and so that creates great doubt about it

              These kind of experiments can be like flight simulators. You know the conditions, you are not in a panic, you know what you are looking for. We don't know the Ripper knew what he was going for or whether it was spur of the moment. I am pretty sure he was in a panic or at least was spreeish as he would be aware the Police patroled the square. You can't truly recreate the conditions. The one true thing that can't be replicated is a serial killer elated on the fantasy being completed and also situationally aware of a Policeman catching him in seconds.

                In the cases of chapman and eddowes the medical evidence shows that anatomical knowledge was evident in the removal of the organs. So the cut and slash theory is out of the equation in the alleged removal of the organs but the cut and slash fits just the murder and mutilation

                  Anatomical knowledge is not, nor did they mean at the time, surgical knowledge. Dr Brown testified that cutting up animals would be enough, and Dr Sequeria didn't even think that level of knowledge was evedent. Dr S was of the opinion that no specific organ was targeted, rather random bits were taken. Knowledge and skill beyond that was really only ever suggested for Chapman's case due to the removal of the entire uterus (unlike the botched job on Eddowes). In other words, there is good reason to consider the cut and slash approach as a great deal of medical testimony by people who examined the actual victims were not convinced otherwise. For us to do so would be unsafe.

                    Once again we differ

                    Chapman Inquest

                    [Coroner] Was there any anatomical knowledge displayed? - I think there was. There were indications of it.

                    Eddowes Inquest

                    [Coroner] Would you consider that the person who inflicted the wounds possessed anatomical skill? - He must have had a good deal of knowledge as to the position of the abdominal organs, and the way to remove them.

                      That's a really good point, it applies equally to both sides of the argument. Certainly not something that's taken into account often.

                        Hi Trevor,

                        I'm not sure what we disagree on? Dr. Brown indicates anatomical knowledge and skill was shown, and later in his testimony he confirms such knowledge and skill could be obtained by one used to cutting up animals. Dr. Sequeria, however, testifies he does not think there was even the knowledge/skill of one used to cutting up animals. They differed in their opinions (as is often the case with opinions). All I was saying was that anatomical knowledge/skill doesn't mean the knowledge and skills of a medically trained person (i.e. the doctor theory for JtR), and certainly nothing in their testimony at the Eddowes inquest contradicts that. The "hack and slash" idea, therefore, would be entirely in line with Dr. Sequeria, but also in line with someone who cuts up animals.

                          What they said and what the reality is that they were wrong, and their inconsistent changeable comments show that. How would someone used to cutting up animals have the knowledge and expertise to be able to locate and remove organs from a human being. There is far to much empahsis placed on some of these opinions from the doctors, whicn have now been disproved by modern day medical experts.

                          There were slaughter houses located in the East End but they mainly slaughtered cattle and sheep, very pigs were slaughtered because the East End was predominantly Jewish who dont eat pork.

                          The only thing the cut and slash applies to is the murder and mutilation!

                            Except, if you believe their opinions are wrong, why emphasize Dr. Brown's estimate for time? And I would suggest modern day killers that we know about who did not even have formal training of cutting up animals, have done as much (i.e. Richard Chase), so I don't think the contemporary medical ideas were wrong in their assessment (either some, or possibly no, experience with cutting up animals are valid opinions). Obviously, this is another point of difference between us that explains how we draw different conclusions.

                            • Below posted before,would a person only used in cutting animals or slaughterer do the below?

                              I have been reading some of Prosectors's posts and it's interesting.Prosector had experience "I have operated on the abdomen many
                              hundreds of times".
                              All quoted text from Prosector.

                              It seems JTR nedded to know how to a) severe the intestines from their mesenteric attachments (Chapman,Eddowes),not to "cause the
                              abdominal cavity to fill with liquid small bowel content,lift the small intestines out of the abdomen so he could have a clear field"
                              in
                              (b) removing the uterus (Chapman,Eddowes),
                              c) "deliberately removed a section of the descending colon in order to get direct access
                              to the left kidney" (Eddowes),
                              d) Invaginating the sigmoid into the rectum (Eddowes),"done to stop faeces, which is largely stored in
                              the sigmoid and rectum", "from oozing back into the abdominal cavity",
                              e) possibly the choosing of the left kidney instead of the right
                              (Eddowes), researching why the left kidney not the right,it's mostly used today for kidney transplant because the left renal vein is
                              longer,easier to cut and sew back in.

                              But in the Victorian era they did have private and public institutions providing autopsy/post-mortem classes.They also had life-like figurines with the entrails as separate parts.There was also apprenticeship.I think Dr. Brown served as an apprentice to his father (1856-63).He got his apothecary livery membership,by servitude.

                              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,it started civil society).

I have set out below the differing MO`s seen in the various murders which I believe are very relevant in determining the killers MO

                                Murder and Mutilation
                                Martha Tabram- Murder extreme mutilations
                                Polly Nichols-Murder minor mutilations
                                Alice McKenzie-Murder. Minor mutilations
                                Murder. Mutilation and alleged organ removals
                                Annie Chapman- extreme mutilations
                                Catherine Eddowes – extreme mutilations
                                Mary Kelly-extreme mutilations
                                ( I am personally satisfied that there is sufficient reliable evidence to show that no organs were taken away by the killer from the Kelly crime scene)
                                Murder-No mutilations
                                Elizabeth Stride
                                Frances Coles

                                The point of this exercise is to show the marked differences in the murders which perhaps indicate more than one killer, or simply one killer who simply murdered and mutilated and did not remove the organs from some of the victims. We know that virtually all the victims were killed in the dead of night in the early hours. So why do we see examples of extreme mutilations in some victims, and minor mutilations in other victims, and almost none in others, all killed around the same times, and yet only two who are alleged to have had organs removed.

                                It is said that the killer removed organs and took them away in the cases of Chapman and Eddowes, but we see no examples of this occurring with any of the other victims, or any attempts at this, and I have to ask why, if it was the same killer surely if he had time in Mitre Square he would have had time to remove organs with the other victims or at least made some attempt at other crime scenes

                                So we are left with unanswered questions

                                Were all the victims killed by one killer or more than one?
                                If the answer is one killer, then we have to ask why didn’t that killer attempt to remove, or remove any organs from any of the other victims.

                                The most simple answer to your question Trevor.....(by the by your list does not include the Torsos, ..which had a precedent 10 years prior), is that different people have different motivations for killing. Annies killer for example, by virtue of the physical evidence and the man who autopsied her, was motivated by a desire to acquire the organ that he took complete. Does Kates evidence offer such a clear example? Well, no...it was never suggested by any medical examiner nor indicated by the wounds made that her killer specifically sought her kidney...the organ he took in completed form.

                                My point is that even within a small but very similar sampling of all these unsolved murders, there still may be varying motives.

                                The one in my view that can bring some sensibility to the JtR theorizers is the Stride case, because we can imagine many and various motives for simply committing a murder. And we can see possible foundations for some of those present in the clubs reputation and their later demonstration of lack of respect for laws and policemen. But with Jacky boy...you only have a goal that is a reflection of the killers madness. The motive in Jacks murders isnt flexible, fluctuating or sensible...its fixed, repetitive and insane.
