    It strikes me that the frankly fanciful Lechmere was the Ripper theory has been shown to have more holes in it than Swiss cheese on these boards. I don't see how any serious Ripperologist could actually take the theory seriously.

      Ah okay, thanks for the clarification. However I don't think it's fair him and his crony are blaming a hard working Victorian family man of being not one but two of the worst serial killers this country has known. Sorry, I'll try to keep the Christer 'cross-posting' down to a minimum...

        Fisherman, 7-23-2019:

        "He points out that the docu has Lechmere crouching over the body of Nichols. What one needs to realize is that the documentary works from the idea that Lechmere actually killed Nichols, and in order to do so, he must have crouched over her body at some stage. Attacking that depiction is attacking the sheer idea that Lechmere could be the killer, and that is not a wise thing to do. Colored figures are used to depict the persons and it should be perfectly obvious that they are suggesting a scenario that is entirely necessary for the concept of the documentary to work.
        I have often said myself that if Lechmere killed Nichols and bluffed it out, he would not begin by leaning in over her body as Paul arrived, he would instead take some steps away from the body so that he could say "Oh look, isn't that a woman lying there? Let's go check her out, shall we?"

          Welcome to Suspectology, where 99-100 percent of those accused are not guilty.

            Given that there must be at least 200 suspects by now, I make it 99.5-100%

              It all began as a grudge match between Christer (Fisherman) and Ben Holme (Ben) right here on Casebook. When I first joined the two were locked in a debate on a Stride thread arguing about a cutaway jacket. Neither would back down. It got rather heated. Shortly Fish shows up on, of all places, the George Hutchinson Suspect threads, arguing against, of all people, Ben. You see, Ben was a devoted Hutchinsonian. Their feud went on it seems like forever.

              In the meantime Ed started posting as Lechmere and apparently Christer got an 'aha' moment. He could go with the Lechmere suspect thing and get one up on Ben. His book and TV show are simply a continuation of his grudge match with Ben. It's that simple.
              Are any of the ideas Fisherman's or did he crib them all from Butler?

                Good question, Fiver.

                But the point is Christer won. He won the parlor game with Ben and he's turned Casebook into Lechbook.

                And that's okay. Winning is a normal human desire.

                And Ed seems happy with his U-Tubes. I watched about a half minute of one.

                They both won.

                  The Mizen Scam is Fisherman's creation, I don't remember Ed hailing insanely for it..

                  Now come on, who would take Fisherman's jokes seriously when for example he says Lechmere could have convinced Paul to tell the Policeman a lie, that another policeman wants him, in order not to get late to work?!

                    I agree although I maintain that no serious Ripperologist and the majority on this site believe Lechmere to be anything other than a witness.

                      Yeah he will be raking it in, going to run out of tenuous links soon mind. I did suggest if it was all for the good of Ripperology that he donated the YouTube proceeds to the local Whitechapel Mosque but I did not get a reply..

                        Isn't the Ley Line nonsense Fisherman's, too? Or did that also start with Butler?

                        I'm pretty sure that the TorsoRipper theory is another bit that Fish borrowed, but probably not from Butler.

                          No, not lay lines. Seriously I need to read up on that one. Please does it involve some Stonehenge type hocus pocus about drawing certain lines across a map to make it look like the letter L or something?

                            The TorsoRipper fantasy came to his mind after he was facing the challenge to connect Lechmere to any other Ripper murder, he couldn't, then because the Whitehall body, if I am remembering correctly, was discovered in a place that can be in a way linked to Lechmere, thats why he needed to connect all those bodies in both series to a lone murderer.

                            He needs them to be connected to strengthen the case against Lechmere, had the body of that torso been found in any other place, you wouldn't have been hearing this nonsense from them.

                            Make the facts fit a theory, not the other way around.

                            What a biased way of thinking, if Lechmere was seen drinking a cup of tea, it would be a sign of his guilt in their minds.

                              Fisherman hates people calling it the Ley Line theory.

                              The day after the Pinchon Street Torso was found, a bloody rag was found somewhere on the grounds of the St. Phillips Church, which was undergoing construction at the time.

                              The Ley Line Branch of the Church of Lechmere, Unholy be His Name, claims that a ley line starting from the Pinchin Street Torso and drawn through the St. Phillips Church would point directly to Charles Lechmere's house at 22 Doveton Street. They also claim that the Goulston Street graffito was found on a direct line between Mitre Square and Lechmere's home.

                              Both these claims are nonsense on multiple levels.

                              Lets start with a map created by Jeff Hamm.

                              The orange lines show that a direct line between Mitre Square and the Goulston Street graffito doesn't go anywhere near 22 Doveton Street.

                              The blue lines show that 22 Doveton Street is one of hundreds of places on a line from Pinchin Street past the St Phillips Church. St Phillips was under construction and directly across the street from the London Hospital, yet Fisherman ignores those possibilities for explaining the bloody rag. Fisherman also ignores that there is no evidence that the St Phillips rag had anything to do with the Pinchin Street Torso. Fisherman also ignores a bloody rag found on Hooper Street , which was much closer to Pinchin Street and found first.

                              But the core premise is ridiculous. Not even the most compulsive Batman villain would drop something pointing directly to their hideout. And real humans don't go bounding across the rooftops in straight lines like Springheeled Jack - the have to use roads.

                                I understand that Fishy used the TorsoRipper Theory to try to pin more crimes on Lechmere. But doesn't the idea that the Ripper and the Torsoman were the same person significantly predate Christer's latching onto the TorsoRipper Theory?
