    Bingo, a great observation Harry!

      So you are pushing a new theory, that the murderer killed the victims at the spot where he found them!

      No search for a prostitute, no talking , no promising, no going to a safe place.....

      So in the case of Nichols at least, you are suggesting that she was standing there alone, rubbing her hands, waiting for a client, in that dark and narrow and dangerous street, suddenly came Lechmere out of the shadows with his sharp long knife and his firm determination, took his knife out, slashed her, throat rose he skirit, cut her abdomen deeply, came Paul, called him, examined the body with him, no blood whatsoever, put his knife back on himself, and went looking for a cop!


      Some people believe in such things.. do you believe in ghosts by the way?!

      I don’t think Nichols already being in Bucks Row is a new theory. It was known for prostitution. I think Nichols is in Bucks Row looking for business. She propositions Lechmere and they walk to the dark gateway. Lechmere strikes and kills her there. I don’t think he would spend much time talking to his victims, he’s too careful for that. He walk the streets every night looking for stragglers and easy kills. He wouldn’t walk around with somebody he was going to kill - too risky.
      In Nichols case she would have been close to where she would die when she met him. Other murders take place just yards off one the routes he takes to work. I think all the victims would be killed very near where he met them.

        .. But killing and cutting and mutilating somebody on his route to work, keeping the Murder's Knife on himself, calling people out to watch the victim, going with them searching for a policeman, contradicting a policeman at the inquest in front of jury, allllllllllll that is not risky!!!!!





        Double standards, twisted logic, contradictions, inconsistencis... thats what you get from a typical Lechmerian.



        That post has made my day, you don't have to tell if you believe in ghosts or not, I've already got my answer.

          Wrong on so many levels. Lechmere killed quickly in secluded places. Nobody heard or saw anything. Walking around Whitechapel with his victim, getting seen by numerous people, is very risky. It’s not the JTR MO.
          In Bucks Row he was caught unawares, he was carried along by circumstances not of his choosing. He wouldn’t have wanted to fetch a policeman (Paul’s idea) and he wasn’t searched so we don’t know if he had the knife. He could have easily thrown it over the wall onto the railway track or into the Wood’s buildings.
          The point is this though. Bucks Row and the drama that unfolded were not of Lechmere’s choosing. After Paul’s unexpected arrival, catching him in the act, he lost control of the situation and had to make the best of it. He had little say in his it unfolded, except to do his best to avoid capture.
          It worked, his pantomime of finding the body was superb improvisation, and he stayed cool and calm. He averted disaster and walked away a free man.

            That's completely untrue. It depends on the time of death. The Dr and Swanson put the time in Lechmere territory around 4am. Witness Richardson, if he's accurate and we believe him, put the time back to when Lechmere was at work. Lechmere was a delivery driver so he could easily have killed at the later time too.
            Just to double underline. Lechmere doesn't have an alibi.
            Lechmere had an alibi for Chapman's murder.

            * John Richardson testified that Chapman was killed after 4:45am

            * Elizabeth Long stated that Chapman was still alive around 5:30am.

            * Dr Philips testified that Chapman was killed where she was found. He gave a qualified estimate of 4:30am or earlier for when Chapman was killed.

            * The coroner summed things up by saying "There is some conflict in the evidence about the time at which the deceased was despatched. It is not unusual to find inaccuracy in such details, but this variation is not very great or very important. She was found dead about six o'clock. She was not in the yard when Richardson was there at 4.50 a.m. She was talking outside the house at half-past five when Mrs. Long passed them. Cadosh says it was about 5.20 when he was in the backyard of the adjoining house, and heard a voice say "No," and three or four minutes afterwards a fall against the fence; but if he is out of his reckoning but a quarter of an hour, the discrepancy in the evidence of fact vanishes, and he may be mistaken, for he admits that he did not get up till a quarter past five, and that it was after the half-hour when he passed Spitalfields clock. It is true that Dr. Phillips thinks that when he saw the body at 6.30 the deceased had been dead at least two hours, but he admits that the coldness of the morning and the great loss of blood may affect his opinion; and if the evidence of the other witnesses be correct, Dr. Phillips has miscalculated the effect of those forces."

            * Charles Lechmere started work at 4am. All the evidence points to Chapman being killed after Lechmere started work.

            To break Lechmere's alibi, you need to show Richardson, Long, and Cadosh are mistaken or lying. You would also need to show that Lechmere's delivery route for that day took him near 29 Hanbury Street and prove there was no van boy on Lechmere's cart (even though that was normal practice) and show there was enough slack in Lechmere's schedule (probably 20 or more minutes) for him to have committed the murder. Even then, that would merely show Lechmere could have committed the murder, not that he actually did. There is zero evidence that ties Lechmere to the killing - no bloodstains on his clothing, no footprints near crime scene, no witnesses of someone matching his description seen near the victim.

              Actually your wrong about the time. Dr Andy Griffiths and Christer Holmgren walked the route with a stopwatch in their documentary. And in Steven Blomer's book "Inside Bucks Row" be has a detailed analysis of just about every route Lechmere could have taken. Bucks Row is 7 minutes away from Doveton Street.
              Care to explain how they could have walked a route that doesn't exist any more?

              Bath Street between Collingswood and Brady would have been an essential part of Lechmere's walk to work. It 's been underneath a Sainsbury's for nearly three decades.

              oving on, the main point is that Lechmere was alone with the body for a period of time. In my view the whole thing happened quickly. He would have needed a few minutes at most. Which of course he had.
              Everyone agrees Lechmere was alone with Nichol's body. So was PC Neil. If bodies bleed out as fast as Fisherman claims then Neil is the most likely person to have killed Nichols.

              The question is how long Lechmere was alone with the body. Based on the timing given by witnesses, it was somewhere between moments and about 5 minutes. The Ripper might have been able to inflict that much damage in 5 minutes.

              An 18 minute gap requires falsifying when Lechmere said he left for work, overestimating how fast he would have walked, and ignoring the timing given by 4 witnesses to go with the lone witness that fits the theory.

              An 18 minute gap also contradicts the theory that Lechmere was the Ripper. With 18 minutes the Ripper would have finished his mutilations and been 10 minutes walk down the road by the time Robert Paul arrived.
