    I'm very interested to hear more of your thoughts. Are you suggesting John being JtR was known to his mother (which I agree with) and she covered for him? Or are you suggesting she was more involved & complicit than that? Or do you think something else altogether?

    At the very least they wanted to be in walking distance.

    But that was a lot further than we would consider walking distance today.

    Hi Pandora,

    agree with you, it is certainly possible, and indeed some serial killers do start with lesser/failed attacks

    ÂThe period of the 1880's was marked by disputes between Horner and the Whitechapel District Board of Works, and by his rebuilding and enclosure of the market area. In about 187980 he obtained an injunction against the sale of goods in the public streets surrounding the market without the payment of market tolls. (fn. 68) There was resistance to the claim to levy tolls in these streets and in North, South, East and West Streets, and Homer's rights in these streets were challenged by the Whitechapel Board, which was concerned at the obstruction of the streets surrounding the market and particularly of Commercial Street. Prolonged legal action followed and resulted in the decision that the market was without metes bounds and in the confirmation of the right of the owner of the market-franchise to collect tolls wherever the market in fact extended. It was judged that the market days were limited to Thursday and Saturday, as specified in Charles II's patent. By this time, however, the market was in fact held on all weekdays, and no serious attempt seems to have been made to restrict its use to two days. http://www.british-history.ac.uk/sur...27-147#h2-0002
    So - the Market was open officially on Thursdays and Saturdays, in practice, every day but Sunday.

    totally agree

    plus she was more than likely an unfortunate, her abdomen was targeted with a knife and it happened very close to the tabram attack.Plus her attacker, like the ripper, got away.

    Hi Pandora,

    You write:


    And Millers Court was was also incredibly close to where 2 of the earlier attacks on Annie Millwood & Martha Tabram happened, both of which I think have a reasonable chance of being committed by JtR.
    Why do you think there is a "reasonable chance" that Millwood was attacked by the same person who did the C5?

    Being a Friday, I am fairly sure it would have been. And the current walk between what was 13 Millers Court, and Spitalfields Market is only 3 minutes.

    And 5 minutes from John Richardson's house to Millers Court.

    And Millers Court was was also incredibly close to where 2 of the earlier attacks on Annie Millwood & Martha Tabram happened, both of which I think have a reasonable chance of being committed by JtR.

    So one could definitely argue John Richardson was up & about, and in the neighbourhood when all 3 women were attacked.
