    One other point that needs to be clarified was just how close or not Mother Lechmere was to Berner Street The impression can be that she is virtually next door (No that was the Kosminski's a few years earlier). However the reality is that depending on tbe route taken its at minimum of just over 200 yards away, or 300 yards at most. Yes it's still relatively close, However when one takes into account the geography of the murders, and the short distances involved, its not as close relatively as the impression people often get.

    But that doesn't make you 'a particularly ugly internet troll', does it? It just makes you someone with a favourite suspect who is struggling to convince his fellow posters.

    So how dare you make this particularly ugly accusation against one of them? The 'troll' accusation I mean. I'd put you on the naughty step if I were your mother. And then I'd put myself on the naughty step for being your mother.

    Hi Gary,

    One could also add that The Kosminski, lived closer to Berner street than mother Lechmere, and at one stage lived at # 38 ( of course we don't know if Aaron was there, or for that matter if he is "Kosminski"; but then of course we don't know Lechmere went to see his mum that night either.

    And that "Short distancs away " is over a thousand yards, not really short at all. Two major roads to cross, so won't want to drwa attention, at lrast a ten minute walk, assuming he does not stop and sit to wipe his knife on the way.


    His day off? Probably was, we know many probably did not work Sundays, including certain Slaughter men.

    Yeah seems a lost art to many.

    My grandfather would shovel coal all day, held the record with his mate for most coal loaded by hand for about 50 years till the mine closed.

    Then go out on the booze get into a fight or three and go home to the missus, and still made a heard of kids.

    I just canít buy the ďheíd be too buggered after a hard days graft to go out killingĒ bit.

    I guess Iíve known far to many thatíd work darn hard, truck drivers, miners when most of it was by hand, labourers lugging 200lb bags of cement, etc. and still spend the night out on the booze and partying.

    I wonder if Mrs Lech ever got a bit suspicious about her husband being out at ridiculous times when he needed to be out of the house at 3.30 to get to work. For eg when he dumped the apron in the doorway of Goulston Street, having been out earlier to kill Stride (or maybe not?) it would have been around 2am. Did he then go home arriving at around 2.20ish only to have to get up an hour later? Or did he just stay out all night with Mrs Lech not complaining and old Charlie still fresh enough to put in a days graft?
    Annie Chapmanís t.o.d might be debated....4.30/5.30? Both are still after the time that we would have expected CL to have been at work.
    MJK, if we believe Hutch, was alive at 2am. So again we have CL out in the wee small hours about to commit a time-consuming and exhausting murder after which he would, in all likelihood, have had to have toddled straight off too work. Was Mrs Lech locked in a cupboard all night? Did she mind her husband bringing back bags of body parts in the early hours

    Ok, Iím being a touch facetious here but the points stand. More doubts. Proper serious ones which Fish will simply brush aside. Surely itís more likely that the ripper had more freedom than a man who had to be at work at 4am everyday to do a long and tiring shift? Surely itís more likely that the ripper had somewhere private where he could keep his grisly trophies and not in the larder being the bread (sorry )

    These are not conclusive signs of innocence but they are serious doubts to be added to a long list of serious doubts. Far, far too many for anyone to believe with any level of confidence that CL was the ripper.

    You misunderstood, Abby. The point is that Fish doesn't appear to "treat people as being truthful and honest until it can be proven that they are not" when it comes to Cross.

Furthermore, if Gary Barnett's discovery of a Pickfords carman named Charles Cross in 1876 is "our" Charles Cross, then he was using that name (which was, after all, his stepfather's) many, many years before 1888.
    seems to me like he was using cross at work and lech more commonly.

    of course there could be innocent explanations, but dosnt rise to a laughing oops!
