    The length & depth of his statement, and of the subsequent investigation by police into what he said is purely unknown to all of us today. Which means you are in no position to suggest it didn't take place, or that it must have been limited in scope.
    You're perpetual tendency towards guesswork is duly noted, but of little real consequence, except perhaps to yourself.
    you are forgetting that witnesses don’t always tell the truth and there false statements can be misleading to police investigation

    The topic is there any suspicion that can be levied against Kidney in the absence of anything to positively rule him out he has to be considered as a likely suspect in the murder of stride because everything about her murder is not in line with most of the other murders

      So you’re just ignoring out of hand the possibility that the killer might have been interrupted?

        As I have said before everything about the stride murder is different from all the other murders that suggests a different killer whether her killer was interrupted or not cannot be established

        but of course those who want to believe that she was killed by the same killer as the rest will use the interruption angle to support their belief

          Or those that don’t want to believe that it was the same killer might ignore the possibility of interruption to promote their own idea. If interruption is possible and it most definitely was then there’s no point in stating the obvious differences because we have a plausible possible reason for them. I don’t see why some have an aversion to the very simple idea that Jack the Ripper was a serial killer. Not as interesting as a conspiracy of course.

            There is no disputing that at least 3 murders were committed by the same killer who was dubbed Jack the Ripper, and that is enough victims to catergorize the killer as a serial killer, but from the evidence surrounding Strides murder she was not one of them.

            There is always the possibility that whoever killed Stride was interrupted, but that cannot be proven, because if Stride was killed by another whoever that person was, had to be in her company firstly to engage with her and secondly then to be with her in the yard. the cutting of the throat would have only taken a moment.

              The throat cutting as you say would have been a matter of 2 seconds work. We can't prove interruption of course but equally we can't disprove it. So there's no strong reason for suggesting that wasn't a ripper victim based on the lack of mutilation.

                But you are forgetting all the other points which makes Strides murder different to all the others.

The case does not bear the distinctive stamp of a Ripper killing."

                      Actually neither are true Franko,...
                      Regarding the sound of the pony cart, you’re correct, Michael. In reality, you didn’t suggest that the sound Mortimer heard were PC’s Lamb & 426H returning to the yard together with Eagle. What you did suggest (in post #877) is that it was the sound of bootsteps of a few men, like maybe Johnson and PC 426H. And this really boils down to the same thing: you suggested that Mortimer might have mistaken the sound of the pony cart for people walking by her house.

                      This is what you wrote:
                      Im wondering whether the so called cart and horse Fanny thought she heard a few minutes after going to bed was actually the bootsteps of a few men. Maybe Johnson and the constable?



                      Regarding the sound of the heavy, measured tramp you did, in fact, suggest they might have been those of Isaac Kozebrodski (post #242 Sequence of comings & goings).

                      This is what you wrote there:

                      And Id add Fanny didnt see anyone at 12:45ish, she heard boots which she labelled as policemans. They could easily have been Issac K's.


                      Even though we can be fairly sure that Kozebrodski didn’t pass Mortimer’s house looking for a copper. After all, he said he went for a policeman in the direction of Grove Street and the shortest way to Grove Street was via Fairclough Street, not up Berner Street (and passed Mortimer’s house) to Commercial Road. Had that been the case, the logical thing for him to have said would have been that he went to look for one in the direction of Commercial Road.

                      Thanks for weighing in on what you feel is an acceptable argument, however your just extrapolating on something I didnt say and still referencing me for some reason..
                      I’m referencing you for the reason that you suggested it, as shown above. If you don’t feel it’s an acceptable argument, I’d like to know why you feel that.


                      I’m sure Michael is going to stick to his interpretations, Herlock. He thinks that Mortimer should have heard the whole Schwarz incident, if it had really taken place. But this can’t mean anything, as with the alternative that he suggests as the truth (i.e. Diemshutz arrived around 12:39 on his pony cart and discovered the body then, etc.), Mortimer didn’t hear anything, either, other than the heavy, measured tramp of a policeman, which, according to Michael may have been Kozebrodski, who didn’t pass her house.

                      I see that its not been plain enough, this statement of Fannys suggests that her most vigilant period of the street during the half hour was the last 10 minutes. Being at her door off and on before that time, she may have missed something, sure...however it is during that time that she hears boots. She hears boots. She sees no-one...which means? Yeah, she is indoors at that time.
                      You’re not responding to the point I’m making. You claimed Mortimer must have heard the Schwartz incident, as – you correctly state – she was indoors at that time. I’m saying that the scenario you propose also produced loud noises, shouting, running, someone walking by her house. Why must Mortimer have heard the Schwartz incident, but not the noises produced by what you propose?

                      In the alternative situation Mortimer didn’t hear Kozebrodski leave the yard at about 12:40 in search of a policeman. That, however, is possible, as he didn’t say that he ran, nor that he shouted while running in search of a copper. But she didn’t hear 2 other Jews (the ones who would bring back Spooner) leave the yard a little later, either, and we know that they sure weren’t silent, as they were shouting out "Murder" and "Police." while running down the street.

                      When exactly did they begin yelling? Where were they? You dont know specifically.
                      I do know, however, they were already yelling before they passed Spooner and he was standing only some 90 yards away from Mortimer’s door. Besides, the couple seen by Mortimer didn’t see or hear anything of the kind while they were standing at the corner of the street before one o'clock.

                        Less than an hour before Eddowes? Kelly what? An hour or so later? Was the ripper on the clock?

                        The location of the murder

                        This is the main reason that I have for doubt. It’s seems the riskiest of locations.

                        The weapon used

                        Were Phillips or Blackwell specific on the weapon used apart from stating the unlikeliness of the knife that was found being the one employed?

                        Out of the canonical 5 the only murder committed South of Whitechapel Road

                        Was the Whitechapel Road an invisible barrier?

                        The neck wound was less severe than the other victims due to a smaller knife being used by the killer

                        Is it explicitly stated that a smaller knife was used? Couldn't being interrupted account for the reduced severity

                        Kidney had a previous conviction for assaulting Stride

                        It’s a quibble but was he actually convicted? I’ve no doubt that he’d previously been violent toward her though.

                        Inquest testimony shows they had an argument shortly before her murder

                        Agreed.

                        and it is not just me that believes Stride was not a Ripper victim

                        Here is a quote from Stewart Evans

                        And I accept the possibility that she might not have been a ripper victim but she certainly might have been one for obvious reasons. Statistically alone she must be a likely victim though? Killed during a series of murders of street women. All with their throats cut. All within the same small area and with an entirely plausible possible reason for the lack of mutilation and a murder with mutilation occurring 15 minutes walk away and less than an hour later.

                          Were there any ripper murders committed as eary as Strides murder? No there was not

                          Were any of the murders in street locations where people were moving about in numbers? No there were not

                          Throat cutting does not make it a common factor as this was an adopted method to kill in Victorian times

                          If it would have taken the killer moments to cut her throat then it would have also only taken moments to stab the victim several times in the abdomen. Too much emphasis is being placed on the lack of mutilations due to the sugestion that he was disturbed.

                          Phillips and Blackwell could only say that they belived the wound to the neck was made with a smaller knife than that had previously been used, and that is consistent with the small wound to the neck.

                          Most of the other victims were almost decapitated by what would seem to have been one deep cut and swipe of the knife across the throat, not a small wound to the neck

                          Kidney was convicted on one occassion of assult on her, although I am led to believe others were reported which didnt get to court.

                          Statistiscs are not always reliable

                          We see no evidence of two attacks on women on the same night and in close proximity to each other

                          Look at it another way I am playing devils advocate with regards to the suggestion that he was interrupted. He would have had to make a quick exit that might have resulted in him being seen, with that in mind and given the fact that he had carried out a murder which is what he presumably set out to do, why would he run the risk of wandering the streets looking for another victim knowing that the police would be on high alert from the discovery of Strides body ,knowing that he might have been seen, surley he would have wanted to distance himself as quickly as possible from the area.

                          Its not feasable to consider the sugestion that because he had been interrupted his ultimate goal had not been fulfilled. I have already stated that it would have taken a matter on moments to carry out any mutilations, and if this killer was organ harvesting surley he would not have picked this location to carry ot a murder and then remove organs

                            So what? You’re talking about differences of an hour or two. So how is it relevant.

                            Were any of the murders in street locations where people were moving about in numbers? No there were not

                            In numbers? Bit of an exaggeration there Trevor?

                            Throat cutting does not make it a common factor as this was an adopted method to kill in Victorian times

                            Others have provided evidence on here numerous times that this wasn’t a common occurrence.

                            If it would have taken the killer moments to cut her throat then it would have also only taken moments to stab the victim several times in the abdomen. Too much emphasis is being placed on the lack of mutilations due to the sugestion that he was disturbed.

                            Interruption is a suggestion that it’s foolish to ignore. Blackwell gave a TOD of between approx 12.46 and 12.56. She’s potentially seen nearby very recently and lo and behold a cart arrives on thee act spot at just the right time to add substance to the possibility of interruption. The lack of mutilation cannot be used as a means of dismissing this as a ripper killing because interruption is possible.

                            Phillips and Blackwell could only say that they belived the wound to the neck was made with a smaller knife than that had previously been used, and that is consistent with the small wound to the neck.

                            Can you point out where they say this Trevor? I’ve just read the Inquest testimonies of Blackwell and Phillips and neither mention anything about knives used in earlier crimes. They only give opinions on the knife found by Coram outside the laundry.

                            Most of the other victims were almost decapitated by what would seem to have been one deep cut and swipe of the knife across the throat, not a small wound to the neck

                            Interruption could account for this.

                            Kidney was convicted on one occassion of assult on her, although I am led to believe others were reported which didnt get to court.

                            Are you certain of that though? You may be correct but assaults don’t always turn to murder but I don’t disagree that this would naturally make him a person of interest.

                            Statistiscs are not always reliable

                            Neither is interpretation.

                            We see no evidence of two attacks on women on the same night and in close proximity to each other

                            Connected in what way?

                            Look at it another way I am playing devils advocate with regards to the suggestion that he was interrupted. He would have had to make a quick exit that might have resulted in him being seen, with that in mind and given the fact that he had carried out a murder which is what he presumably set out to do, why would he run the risk of wandering the streets looking for another victim knowing that the police would be on high alert from the discovery of Strides body ,knowing that he might have been seen, surley he would have wanted to distance himself as quickly as possible from the area.

                            Or he might he might have felt frustrated enough to find another victim. I accept what you about the risk of being seen but witnesses at the time talk about an almost deserted street.

                            Its not feasable to consider the sugestion that because he had been interrupted his ultimate goal had not been fulfilled. I have already stated that it would have taken a matter on moments to carry out any mutilations, and if this killer was organ harvesting surley he would not have picked this location to carry ot a murder and then remove organs

                            Yes it is. Not as a fact but as a possibility.

                            It doesn’t matter how short a time it would have taken to carry out mutilations. If the killer was interrupted just as he’d cut her throat he would have stopped. And it doesn’t follow that if he took organs from one victim then he would have attempted the same with all of them. He might have viewed this location as higher risk so the plan might have been quick kill plus some abdominal mutilation then escape.

                            I don’t understand why the resistance to the obviously possible suggestion that Stride was a ripper victim. Of course it’s possible that she wasn’t but it’s something that cannot be proven or disproven.

                              But you seem hell bent on wanting to belive that she was a ripper victim and that the killer was interrupted, and you will not even consider that she was not a ripper victim but may have been killed by another unrelated killer who was not involved in any of the other murders.

                              When weighing up all the facts of her murder, the balance of probabilty I would suggest is in favour or her not being a ripper victim for all the reasons I have already given

                                . . We can't prove interruption of course but equally we can't disprove it.

                                . As you know, any doubt that I might have about whether Stride was a victim or not is based on the location and the level of risk

                                . I’m not saying that this is definitely what happened because the possibility exists that she wasn’t killed by the ripper

                                I’ve also expressed my own doubts about whether Stride was a ripper victim based on the chosen location so I don’t see how I can be accused of being dogmatically pro-interruption

                                . As I've said it's quite possible that Stride wasn't a victim.

                                Do these sound like quotes from someone that’s hell bent on wanting to believe that Stride was a ripper victim? And to collect these quotes I’ve only gone back to page #60 from page # 70.

                                Ill add this one Trevor just so that you can be sure that I’m up to date:

                                I accept that Stride might not have been killed by the ripper. It’s a possibility; as is the possibility that she was.
