    the ripper was a short stout man who wore a peaked cap the night of the double event.
    lawende was tjerefore more than likely a tad off on his estimate.
    schwartz witnessed an incident that sounds very bury like to me.
    bury is a good suspect, or one of the least weak.
    Yes Abby, I think that when we look at the witness statements, the odds are that we're looking for a short stout man.

    Mrs Cox's interaction with the coroner at Mary Janes inquest was:

    [Coroner] Was anybody with her ? - A short, stout man, shabbily dressed. He had on a longish coat, very shabby, and carried a pot of ale in his hand.
