    The answer is of course yes he could, one which took him far from Browns Yard, yet is only about 3 minutes longer.


    To reply that he would not use a longer route, in the circumstances outlined, is totally irrelevant.



    Steve
    Christer's idea is that Cross appeared at the inquest voluntarily because the police would have found him knowing what time he passed through Buck's Row. He'd have been identified, stopped, brought under suspicion after Paul's Lloyd's statement. Like all of it, Steve, it's a hard sell. Mainly because it makes no sense.

    Let's put aside the fact Paul says nothing to indict Cross' behavior in his statement. He related that the man asked him to come see, they checked on Nichols together, and then went and told PC Mizen what they'd found (even better Paul makes himself the prime actor and speaker, which could only have helped Cross' cause of "lying his way past the police").

    Leaving aside the fact that the Whitechapel murders are littered with characters who were reported to the police and described in the press (added bonus: Paul didn't describe Cross AT ALL in his Lloyd's "bombshell") who were never found, identified, interviewed, etc. So it's absurd to think that Cross would have feared being picked up based on what appeared in Lloyd's), in the first place.

    It's more absurd to think that the he'd submit himself to the inquest with a plan - which he executes - of lying about a PC, risking detection, arrest, and execution, all to avoid walking a few minutes out of his way for a few weeks. In the end we're asked to believe that he'd successfully "bluffed" the "big-upping" "police hating" Paul. He'd performed successfully this "Mizen Scam" foolishness, taking advantage of our hero, super cop Jonas Mizen... and it's all gone to plan, "taking him past the police"... with the murder weapon on his person, I might add. And then, having done ALL THAT, he appears at the inquest to avoid the inconvenience of detouring a few blocks around Buck's Row in order to avoid risking being revealed as a murderer and being executed.

I've marked it as the question mark to the lower left. Can anyone confirm if that is the correct location?
      Hi Jeff,
      I see Steve has already pointed out the location of Llewellyn's address. But just for extra info, the 1899 Goad map (Vol XI sheet 328) shows both the old and new numbers for the Whitechapel Road, showing the number change took place between 1888 and 1899. The surgery is numbered 152 crossed out (old number) and 313 (new number).

        This has been said several times and you have not addressed such.
        Far more important, when the Carmen approached Mizen, he was not looking for a murder, he did not know a murder had occurred , so approaching as a pair is irrelevant.

        "You have not addressed such"?

        What is it I should address? You are making a not very good point. We all know thatmSmith spoke of a gang. We even know that the two weapons involved in the Tabram murder (the one denied by so many out here for no good reason at all), and that this could point to two killers. This, however, does not detract from how ONE killer only was always the norm.

        I am not saying that Smith was killed by one killer only, am I? No, I am arguing that trekking in a pair will GENERALLY (as in "usually" or "as a rule" be a clever thing for a killer to do. And that holds true regardless of how many PC:s have heard about a murder or not, Iīm afraid.

        I really could not be much clearer than that, could I? So please donīt keep up that "you have not addressed it charade.


        Journalistic questions, attempting to get the response you want, sorry Am a trained political operator.

        So you may not like the replies.

        1. At the time a murder had occurred in the area a few months before, that was said to have been perpetrated by more than one, so the question in this instance is irrelevant and misleading, if the police knew a murder had occurred two would therefore be as likely to be stopped as 1.


        2. Mizen was not aware a murder had been committed so again irrelevant.

        3. No it is not, if he had no knowledge of a death, then one or two people approaching him makes no difference.


        The point you are attempting to make is an old journalist trick Christer, I am too long in the tooth to fall for such.

        Is that why you answer like a politician? Meaning that you donīt answer the questions at all? Then I would like to point out that this is because you cannot deny what I am saying on a general level.

        I know that you answer like a politician. You approach the case like one too. With the expected result.

          You rarely seem amused, though. Strange, that. You know, shouting "bias" is not the way to go about an honest debate. Then again, who said you wanted that in the first place...?

            Unless I've completely misunderstood
            If you think roaming the streets alone is a better thing to do for a killer than travelling in company, the yes, I fear you ARE completely misunderstood.

            And "do it again"? ANY man who appears on two murder sites, regardless if in company or not, will draw suspicion and rightly so.

              I disagree very much. the one exception I can see is if the people travelling in company were of a rough appearance - an obvious street gang or so. Otherwise, it would benefit any person to trek together with another man. Sorry, but that was always the rule.

              Do you still think that disagreeing with a PC is a good indicator of innocence, by the way...?

                Once again, we all know quite well that the London streets were not closed to Lechmere at any stage - he was allowed to go to work via Brighton, even. It is not rocket science, Iīm afraid, and nobody is saying it is - much less "diverting" anything at all.

                I do think that the only person out here with no need of any diversions whatsoever is me. Itīs the rest who are stating one formidable whopper after the other, disagreeing with the police is consistent with innocence, it was less conspicious to be alone on the streets than to trek together, it is proven that Mizen lied or misled etcetera.

                That, my fine friend, is what diversions look like - rather like certified balderdash.

The difference is that you are not constrained by the evidence, and are willing to set great portions of it aside to fit in your explanations to make it possible for Lechmere/Cross to be guilty. You ignore all evidence that directly contradicts your presentation. That's why you still claim side-trips cannot be excluded, despite the evidence allowing no room for them. Oh, I can see how they're possible if we ignore the evidence, that's easy, anything is possible then. But I won't do that unless there is other evidence that indicates something is an error but I won't set something aside simply because it can't be explained - you will, and do throughout your Lechmere/Cross is JtR presentation. It's why you can't tell me story that includes a side trip that fits within the evidence and why you think they are still possible - because you do not constrain what you think is possible by the evidence, only by the limits of your creativity, which are impressively vast. But that approach, I'm afraid, is what not being careful looks like, you just cannot see it.

                  - Jeff
                  I canīt tell you a story that fits with the evidence and involve ducking into another street? I already have, Jeff. And to rub salt into your wounds, here it is again:

                  None of us knows how long time was used by the carmen to walk to Mizen. None of us knows which speed was employed. Therefore, none of us knows if there was time to duck into a side street for a quick check for a PC - after all, they DID look for one.

                  You can of course say that you consider it proven that they could not have done it. The drawback of that is, however, that it will prove that you are misrepresenting the evidence.

                    Brown = Paul residence

                    Of course, I am not to be trusted, but you may want to correct the brown dot. If you want it all to be correct, that is. Others have informed you about the Llewellyn part, I see.

                        That's the RULE? Even when two soldiers were suspected for killing Tabram and Smith claimed to have been attacked by a gang. BUT! Better to travel "in company"... after all... that's the rule!

                        Disagreeing PCs who are telling the truth isn't an indicator of anything, GENERALLY speaking, other than the fact that one is disagreeing with the other, of course. Disagreeing with a PC who's clearly not being honest is an indicator of something else, though.

                        Unintentional comedy is often the best comedy, I think.

                          What was mentioned earlier about HALF TRUTHS? Of course, the documentary is full of them. And here's another. Of course, Cross didn't disagree with "the police". He disagreed with Mizen, a policeman. The police, it would seem, likely felt Mizen was the one telling "formidable whoppers", in that nothing at all was made of Cross' "disagreement" or Paul's failure to corroborate Mizen's "whopper".

                          it was less conspicious to be alone on the streets than to trek together, it is proven that Mizen lied or misled etcetera.

                          Wait. Was it not you who suggested the slings and arrows that so unfairly target you are unfair because you've never said your theory was a "proven thing"? You then went on to describe how nasty and unfair those who would suggest otherwise are, of course. Now you're saying posters here have said that Mizen's lying is a PROVEN thing? Nothing, of course, can be proven. What we know suggests it is highly likely Mizen lied. Taking a page from your book... I'll say it's 85% probable that Mizen lied. Good. We're all playing by the same rules now, Christer. So no more outrage.

                          That, my fine friend, is what diversions look like - rather like certified balderdash.
                          Balderdash... good word. Applicable in that we're discussing this "Mizen Scam".. in all it's hilarity....

                            I see. So we must choose to believe Robert Paul's time estimate that it was EXACTLY 3:45am when he entered Buck's Row but disregard his statement that when he saw Mizen in Montague Street "not more than four minutes had elapsed from the time he first saw the woman".

                            You're at it again, aren't you? Believe a source when you perceive (however tenuously)that it aids your scams and theories, ignore or impeach when they don't. Thus, when Paul gives 3:45am, he's solid, reliable. When he says he found Mizen only four minutes after he saw Nichols... he's back to big-upping police hating blowhard.

                              I took the time to measure Cross/Lechmere's journey to work (roughly) using the measurement tools on the maps, and it came to 2,872 yards. Translating the 7min 7 second journey from his home to the crime scene (based on Fisherman's walking of the route) into a yards/min, that's about 104 yards/min, which would make his travel time about 28 minutes. So, if he left home about 3:30, as he testified, that walking speed gets him to the crime scene at 3:37, and would just get him to work on time at 4:00 with only a couple minutes to spare. If the interaction with Paul at the crime scene was, as some have suggested, only a minute or two, and the chat with PC Mizen also relatively brief, he can get to work on time without having to run, though he does have to hurry a bit more, but it is doable. I think he says somewhere he normally left at 3:20, which would make sense as that would give him lots of time to make it to work on time. At 7 min 7 seconds, that's about 3.6 miles per hour, a bit above the average walking speed, but given he's left late, that actually makes sense too.

                              Anyway, here's the map now. His work place is to the west quite a ways so I've not included that.

                              Well i worked on 102.5 yards per min, and have a slightly different distance to work, but its only yards.

                              i think those timings are good.
