    Just by this simple fact and Long's testimony Tumblety could be eliminated as a suspect..

    It should say "Levy "accurately" determined Eddowe's height at 5 feet.

    Clearly the first human laws (way older and already established) spawned organized religion's morality - from which it's writers only copied/stole,ex. you cannot kill,rob,steal (forced, otherwise people run back to the hills,no towns).

      As for one's height, it's would have probably been the easiest thing to disguise if it needed to be increased or decreased. The average temperatures during the murder events being around 50 F and in London's rainiest season, men would wear overcoats or capes conceiling the method used. In my novel, 'My Ripper Hunting Days' one of my characters explains how it could be done.

      But still comparing two people standing close to each other was better than just estimating without comparing,and height need not be mentioned,only if one was taller than the other.Levy happened to estimate Eddowe's height correctly,so I gave more credibility to his estimate,3 inches taller or a bit taller and to a lesser degree Long as well.
      As far as any other descriptions,sure people could make mistakes.As I posted before people are thinking about something else when an incident occurred as opposed to preparing to observe it,so they are bound to miss things or things could be unclear.They even go as afar as using hypnosis to induce "accuracy".
