  • Thanks Gareth. On the other hand, it might be fitting given that Dimshits sold dimcrack jewellery.

        And he was apparently extensively interview by the police before hand. It's highly unlikely that he was not asked about the incident, but of course we cannot konw.
        It is however interesting that on his apperance at the inquest, he is not asked about the exchange at all.

They walked on and perhaps Paul glanced over his shoulder and saw Mizen finishing the knocking-up that he'd started. Paul then assumed that he was going to do more and had a rant about it in his Press interview (perhaps the rant was also inspired by an already established anti-police sentiment on his part).
          All very possible Robert.

The original, written in Cyrillic as ДЫМШЫЦ, could be rendered as "Diemschutz" if one were to assume a German orthography, but that would - mistakenly, IMHO - give the impression that Dymshitz was a German. I discovered a while ago that most immigrants with that name came from Belarus - the Pinsk region, in particular.

            Truth is, there is no "correct" way to render ДЫМШЫЦ in English, but there's certainly no "ie" or "schu" in it. I personally settled on Dymshitz because it looks better than "Dimshits" or "Dimshitz", which are other possible renderings of the name.
            Thanks for the info Gareth

            Either way an unfortunate name.

                It came as a surprise to me Robert when i only fairly recently found out, on one of the threads, that ‘knocking up’ was a legitimate part of a Constable’s duties. Id always assumed that it was something that the Bobby did on receipt of a payment and that it would have been frowned upon by the senior officers.

                  He wouldn't.

                  The argument goes that CL would have had a reason to be walking down Buck's Row if seen after Nichols had been butchered there. So he was in the best position to bluff his way out of trouble.

                  It doesn't seem to occur to Fisherman that CL wouldn't have risked being seen with Nichols in Buck's Row while she was still alive.

                    No, but there will be monthly tours, in my London accent.

                      And hours were loooong and the work often exhausting in those days. Most working family men would simply not have had the spare time, let alone the energy and the luxury to even think about squeezing in some killing for pleasure.

                      I'd be looking for someone with more leisure time and fewer responsibilities, weekends off, possibly a casual labourer, self employed or temporarily unemployed, probably a regular prostitute user and drinker - someone who could come and go with few questions asked. Lechmere seems like the opposite.

                        So Lechmere was walking along Whitechapel Road, where Nichols approached him and took him to Buck's Row, which was on his normal route to work? And he was okay with that, was he?

                          Why do you think he said that, Robert? What possible reson could he have had?

                          It is time to move away from Fairytale Street and into Logical Lane. Let´s look at the reality instead of our prejudices and misconceptions.
                          But did the above examples all have more leisure time, or more freedom, or more affluence perhaps, to indulge their evil cravings, than a hard-working carman in 1880s Whitechapel? I don't know, but it seems that serial killing has escalated since then, at least partly because the modern world enables more people to do more of what they fancy, for good and evil.

                            I'm not sure if I've got this right, but I think it was OK for officers to knock people up, but they weren't supposed to do it for money.

                            Since officers obviously couldn't walk around carrying a pole, maybe a row of houses had a pole propped up somewhere out of reach of thieves, but I haven't a clue where.

                              I think you're forgetting that Crossmere had the coolness, resourcefulness and energy of James Bond. When he was faced with the problem of dealing with Paul and Mizen he was stirred but not shaken.

                              He was the kind of chap who could do a murder before work, beat up the missus after work and not even break into a sweat.

                                I thought the missing eleven minutes between leaving home and attracting Paul's attention to his handiwork were crucial to your theory, Fish. Time spent by a killer looking for a victim, luring her, or allowing her to take him to the place of execution and doing the deed. If you regard it as equally possible that Nichols was served up on a plate to him, arranging her skirts in Buck's Row when he happened along on his way to work, you must have another explanation for your supposed time gap. Apologies if you have since posted this explanation. I'll get to it eventually!
