Why is the possibility of Lechmere interrupting the ripper so often discarded?

    Hi Abby,

    What I said is that they weren’t seen either with anybody in the last hour or so before they were murdered. Maybe that's what you missed, Abby.

    to me seems like theres quite a few people always up and about- but no suspects seen with nichols- except lech. so yes again I find that somewhat odd.
    I'm not saying that you shouldn't find it a bit odd - you're perfectly entitled to do so - just that I don't, for the reason I've given.

      Paul said they agreed that the best course to pursue was to tell the first policeman they'd meet, so, yes, "to seek out" is more active than "meet" and, therefore, more accurate if you're purely looking at the significance of the words.

        Why are people using the term to mean something different? Did I miss yet another triumphant act of logocide?

        M.
        People try and come up with an alibi all the time when they are guilty of a crime do they not ? So lech saying he heard footsteps scurrying away would immediately mean he was setting up a kind of alibi. he did not . His silence speaks volumes . See no evil etc , for your Latin -audivimus non loqui malum nec malum nec malum videre.

          Hi frank
          thanks. I didnt miss it-I just find it irrelevant. My point was that for all the other victims were seen with potential suspects before they were murdered, men that could very well have been the ripper. nichols wasnt, except for lech. no big wup.

            It's not an interesting idea it is pure fantasy in the usual quest by some idiots to try to turn a man that is clearly innocent to everyone else into a suspect for the Whitechapel murders.

                Yes I misread the post and didn't see the correction to John's similar misunderstanding. My point remains valid though: the nonsense theories people come up with to accommodate Lechmere (like the comical near fatal illness in October, parking up to dispatch Chapman (not Farmer though, we can't have that coz the times don't work)) are farcical.

                There are others. There was some pseudo psychology nonsense about Lechmere having some sort of heroic military personalty attributes - i forget the exact wording but I think it was RJ who pointed out how totally ridiculous it was.

                The other stand out load of nonsense was this one. I was talking about the FBI profile which is widely rubbished as nonsense as 'your average casebooker' knows more than people that have actually worked on cases involving serial killers - casebooker duly steps forward with their own 'profile' in post #5386 of Evidence of Innocence- what do you know- profile accepted as describing Lechmere to a tee, despite no evidence for any of it. Look at Mr Barnett's response to said profile in #5391:

                There’s only one item there that definitely didn’t apply to Lechmere: the military/navy thing. What was the rationale for including that?

                A pretty bold claim considering the list includes 'Possible masterbation and or cannibalism with trophies/ parts'

                But also includes:

                Single or dominated wife
                Knew prostitutes and socialized with
                Had problems having sex
                Former military and or navy/ sailor
                Very familiar with knife
                Accustomed to carrying knife before murder spree
                Appears very cocky to people
                Thinks he is smarter than anyone else
                Self assured
                Cunning


                No evidence any of these applied to Lechmere. I'm not rubbishing Abby's post, just the nonsense application to Lechmere.

                Lechmere is best understood by considering he is innocent, then you don't have to fudge all of these ridiculous theories about illness, time off etc.

                  Surely he was describing their living conditions, not the man personally.

                  Did Dwane even meet Lechmere or did he speak to Elizabeth?

                  If he did meet Lechmere and Lechmere was wearing his work clothes would Dwane have downgraded the household living conditions because of it?

                  There seems to be a degree desperatism in your post.

                  • First you write,

                    >>so now we have the interesting idea of CAL/Charlie Cross being two elements of a split personality. <<

                    Then you write,

                    >>Let’s make it easy for you.
                    There is zero evidence Lechmere…had a split personality.>>

                    and then,

                    >Well perhaps there is<<

                    And apperently everyone else is to blame for the confusion.

                      Thomas Allen, wore those clothes to work? What on earth is your point Gary?

                        I know available evidence are dirty word in the Lechmerian vocab but,

                        "Let's go on till we see a policeman and tell him"

                        Cross

                        "... they decided that they ought to acquaint the first policeman they met with what they had discovered."

                          All of which avoids the proposed question, why go and seek out a policeman.

                          • >>And something similar applies to his not legging it when he caught sight of Paul. If he had done so, Paul would have immediately been alerted to the fact that a crime had been committed. <<

                            Assuming the same person/s murdered all the victims, their modus operandi was to get away not stay.


                            >> If he was the killer, the way he interacted with Paul and Mizen was probably the best thing he could have done. <<

                            Abby's real life example provides "probably the best thing he could have done".

                            Send Paul for help and then either leg it or dispose of the knife and find a policeman.

                            As I said, guilt requires a story to be manufactured, innocent requires none.

                              The more you exclude the fact that Paul was searched for and questioned yet did not appear in Swanson's report, the less sense this argument makes.

                                Correct Frank, all he needed to have said was, he thought he heard or saw someone ahead.
