Did the murderer have anatomical knowledge beyond that of say a butcher?

    Dr Bond's sister in law was admitted to Bethlem in 1873.

    Bond and Sutton possibly crossed paths at the Lock Hospital.

    Thank you. I'll save these off to my MJK foldesr and have a good read.

    I was interested by your comment "Not impressed with Bond."

    I have some thoughts on him which I will share later (when I get time!).

    IIRC after Mary Kelly's murder,a small team of American police turned up in London to find about about policing techniques,etc.

    Not impressed with Bond.

    Someone will know.Where's Wicky when I need him
    Thanks DJA. Appreciate the info.

    Reckon Dr Phillips knew who Jack the Ripper was.
    Hi DJA and thanks. Interest to read that Dr Bond's abilities was disparaged by the USA researchers. Can you share a bit more this this?

    I agree that Dr Phillips knew the identity of JTR. Bruce Robinson agrees for sure as well!

    Even if there was an inverted Y it does not mean the killer had anatomical knowledge.

Then if I was like jack and wanted organs from low down it makes sense to make at least one other cut off the first. Doing it to make an inverted Y would make sense. What I'm getting at is that we don't know what a chance occurrence looks like. He might have just done it that way as it seemed logical and there is no more to it. As you said, Bond, who may well have had access to other photos and notes that we don't, totally dismisses the idea of anatomical knowledge. Also, I think Dr P's first statement on medical knowledge was 'I think so' - which isn't all too convincing.
    Thanks Aethelwulf. I agree it's possible that an inverted Y incision could have been made, say, by luck or by common sense.

    I have to look at again the pronouncements of Dr Phillips re the killer's supposed anatomical knowledge/skill.

    Did Chapman's abdominal incisions really remind Dr. Philllps of an inverted "Y" incision?

    If Jack really used an inverted "Y" incision on Chapman then it raises the following points:

    1. It means Jack was familiar with an established dissection technique that was very likely acquired in a dissection room or at least the study of anatomical books and therefore supports the idea Jack did have rough anatomical knowledge as a minimum.

    2. It potentially works against supporting certain suspects; e.g. Kosminski.

    3. It raises questions regarding the validity of point 8 in Dr Bonds' report commissioned by Anderson on the 25th of October. Bond stated
    "In each case the mutilation was inflicted by a person who had no scientific, nor anatomical knowledge."

    If Dr. Philllps could see something that reminded him of an inverted "Y" incision then why coudn't Dr Bond?

    Phillips based his anatomical skill assumption regarding Chapman, not only on the way the uterus was excised (which was flawed but logical to Phillips) but also on the way the abdominal incisions were made. That part was left out of all but one newspaper. It reminded him of an inverted "Y" incision common in the autopsy room at the time. As we know, Wynn Baxter took it and ran with it in his soon-to-be anatomical specimen thesis. It made sense; it was logical. They had no conception at that time of a psychopathic or psychotic serial killer.

    The inverted "Y" incision is really interesting. Also the lack of newspaper mentions on the way abdominal incisions were made, except one newspaper?

    Love to read this report...
