  • The Keystone Cops

    Elizabeth Stride is the keystone to the WM. Don't bother asking yourself whether or not she was a Ripper victim. Rather, ask yourself why she had to be included as part of the Ripper tally. Approaching it this way around puts the WM in a whole new light.

    Ok Simon, I don’t know about anyone else of course but you’ve lost me straight away.

      Consider the consequences of Stride not being included in the Ripper's tally.

        I'll second that.

            Well if it is a math question I would say 5-1 = 4. Still don't know what you are getting at.

              Ask yourself why it was imperative that Stride had to be included in/couldn't be left out of the Ripper tally.

                        Hi Scott and Herlock,

                        You're both right, but Martyn wins a prize off the top shelf.

                        Stride's murder had nothing to do with the "Ripper."

                        But Stride had to be made part of the "Ripper's" tally, because, if she had been treated as the victim of, say, a one-off domestic murder, it would have destroyed any notion of a lone "serial killer" stalking the East End of London.

                        Solution?

                        Send a postcard to the press, sign it Jack the Ripper, and claim Stride as the first victim in a double event.

                        And everyone fell for it. Even Macnaghten.

                        Regards,

                        Simon

                          Simon,

                          Thanks for the prize but I'm not seeing how exempting Stride as the "Ripper's" work, but seeing it as possible domestic killing, destroys the idea of "lone serial killer".

                          I don't see them necessarily being mutually exclusive ideas.

                          I do feel there is something contrived and artificial about the Double Event and I like the idea of the postcard setting a false narrative.

                          Martyn

                            Hi Martyn,

                            You can't promote a "lone serial killer" stalking the East End, when a totally unconnected killing takes place within the hour on the same day.

                            You have to own it.

                            Regards,

                            Simon

                              Hi Simon,

                              Like Martyn i canít see how Stride needed to be a part of the series? After all she wasnít mutilated and even today there are many that feel she wasnít killed by the ripper. The police also had Smith and Tabram.
