    When the information that Cross was found in the vicinity of Nichol's body,came to the attention of the police,he (Cross) would have,as Fisherman stated,been a person of interest.The police would then assess any information given by Cross as to his (Cross)reasons for being there.Only if sufficient cause for suspicion against Cross had ensued,would the police consider him suspect.This doesn't seem to have happened.He was never a suspect then,there is no cause to consider him suspect now,no matter how many guesses Fisherman,or others ,make.
    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.

    on the "right track" as one of his alleged letters later claimed (and underlined)
    The underlined bit was specifically the word "right", which was probably a reference to the recently published theory that the killer was right handed.

    The Pinchin Street torso was found under a railway arch

    As was Francis Coles

    just a random thought...

    yeah those look good for escape routes and apparently also not to run into one of the police. man he was lucky.


    heard lech and bolted before lech saw or even heard him
    picked the correct escape route
    didn't run into any of the police
    lech and paul didn't see the neck cut
    nor yell bloody murder
    ripper missed neils beat
    by the time lech/paul reach mizzen and neil also finds the body, the ripper is well on his way safely away from the scene.

    what did sugden say? the luck always ran with the ripper. and the police officer (forgotwho)- I am amazed at the mans elusiveness.

    it really is amazing.

    If he wasn't lucky, we wouldn't be talking about him today.

    i think there is a very good chance that the killer had left sometime before Lech arrived, if it wasn't him, that is.
    And i am not going to exclude him,i think its highly unlikely, but he cannot be ruled out.

    i think most serial killer probably are very lucky, thats how they get away with it often.

The most sensible route would seem via Wood's Buildings into Whitechapel Road. Since no alarm would be raised for at least a minute or so before Lechmere would reach the body, there would be no reason for the Ripper to be 'detected' either during that time and after that he would be quite safely in Whitechapel Road.

    And after examination of all the alternatives, Wood's Buildings is indeed one of Steve's more favoured routes...

    There's a very interesting breakdown of just this in Steve's brand new (today) book...

    There is this one, but it needs expanding a bit...
