  • Could the ripper have escaped via the train line?

    on the "right track" as one of his alleged letters later claimed (and underlined)

    The Pinchin Street torso was found under a railway arch

    As was Francis Coles

    just a random thought...

      The underlined bit was specifically the word "right", which was probably a reference to the recently published theory that the killer was right handed.

        Paul, however, was considered a person of interest. He had given an interview, said rather snide things about the police, acted as if he himself had found the body and notified the beat cop, and yet had not bothered to present himself at the police station, or at the inquest as a witness. Police had to go to his address and convince him to testify. His behavior is more suspicious than Lechmere's, at least to the authorities.
