  • ah yes, well remaints of that could have likewise gotten on his face during the flurry of surgery, no? Perhaps all the more reason to salvage something to wipe it off during his exit. Then again he might be inclined to coprofilia (sp?)-- not to be confused with 'cop-a-feel-ya'. A scatological interest would have made the scrap more of a romantic momento than 'doo-rag'. Like everything, just guesswork.

    • Funnily enough, LadyG, I suggested something similar not too long ago. Anyone who could relish the thought of fondling - perhaps even eating - human offal is surely right down there (or up there, depending on one's point of view) with those who fancy getting s*** faced on a Saturday night in more ways than one.

      Love,

      • Lady G, we can't assume it was a part of the dress that was taken. Contemporary photos show that many women wore white aprons over their clothes. In fact from the descriptions given, I believe it was a protective apron that he used rather than a remnant of skirt.

        • I havent had chance to read all posts from all 22 pages, and I know this is a much older thread but I always had the belief that Jack the ripper, while working on Eddow's in pitch black darkness accidentally had cut his own hand. He then had to think quick and so decided to cut off some of Eddows apron to bandage his wound. He couldn't be having blood trails for the police to follow plus if it was severe enough he would have needed to do something to stop the bleeding. The faeces on the apron then would have come from the rippers hands as they were inside Eddows. He made his way to Goulston street and then discarded for apron, most likely to prevent a wife, relative, friend or landlord seeing it. IF, I say IF, the killer wasn't medically trained would he have then been forced to seek medical attention at the London infirmary? Also the time between this murder and kelly's was had the longest time gap of any of the known murders; so maybe he had to wait during this period of time for some kind of healing before going out again? Anyway this is just a theory I have often wondered about for some time. Also if the killer had of seeked attention at the London Infirmary, would there have been any medical records of it? Would be interesting if a medical record of a man coming in for treatment for a laceration wound around the time of this eddows murder came to light, even more so if it was a known suspect. Anyway this is just an idea I thought id share.

          • Just reminded myself that I already had suggested this idea about 6 years ago. Id completely forgot due to not being on here for all that time. It was suggested that the apron was too big for just a cut to a hand, which to be fare, I cant argue with. The things im not sure about are "why leave the apron in Goulston street if it was being used to carry the organs?" His hands and knife he could have easily wiped on her apron without cutting it off and taking it with him. He also never cut off anything from his other victims that we know of. To me it seems to make more sense that the ripper always carried his own form of organ concealment, his own rag of clothing say. So why cut the apron off? Maybe it was not his hand he cut, but his leg, thus needing a larger amount of rag. It does seem hard to imagine him cutting his leg though, a hand I can understand, but a leg, hmm. Upon checking my older post from years ago I was told that Mitre square was not pitch black, and that there was sufficient light. I always thought that it was meant to be really dark and that when PC Edward Watkins first entered the Square he may have actually disturbed the ripper unknowingly and was still there.

            • Upon checking older threads that I had posted in I was also reminded with another of my older posts where I had shared Trevor Marriots email regarding a certain theory. This was completely wrong and awful of me to do, and even though it was 6 years ago I want to to apologize to Trevor for doing this. I have a LOT of respect for Trevor Marriot actually, he always brings something interesting to the table as well as also wielding a huge amount of enthusiasm that I find appealing. I remember reading something where he was trying to get some police doccuments/reports on the case released and that he has tried several times to do so. I just remember thinking how much effort he was putting into it to finally get the answers we all want. Anyway if you end up reading this Trevor, please accept my whole hearted apology.
