  • Ada Wilson attacker similar description to Ripper

    I’ve been reading previous threads about whether Ada Wilson was an earlier victim of JTR.

    One of the main reasons why it could be plausible is Ada’s description of the man is similar to the respected witness descriptions from the Ripper murders.

    Ada’s attacker was described as “from 25 to 30 years of age, medium height (about 5ft. 5in.), sunburnt face, fair moustache, and wore light trousers, a dark coat, and a wideawake hat.”

    Credible witness descriptions from Ripper killings is he was 25-35 y.o, 5’7” tall, English, fair, had a moustache, stocky.

    To refresh what we know …

    Ada claimed to be a seamtress , but evidence she was a prostitute. She claimed she was living a home at 19 Maidman Street and answered a knock on the door, a man forced himself into the room, demanded money, then stabbed her twice in the throat when she refused, and ran away leaving her for dead.

    It would appear that the claim about being robbed may have been fabricated.

    Rose Biermann, who also lived at that location said in her statement, that “I knew Mrs. Wilson as a married woman, although I had never seen her husband” and “I noticed a young, fair man rush to the front door and let himself out. He did not seem somehow to unfasten the catch as if he had been accustomed to do so before.”

    This suggests the attacker had previously visited Ada.

    One of the reasons why this was not the Ripper is Maidman Street is not in the same zone as the accepted Ripper murders. Maidman Street (which no longer exists now) was off Burdett Road, Bow.

    I’m interested in what others think about Ada as an early victim of the Ripper.

    Im curious how a man that stabs a woman in the throat is similar to one that slices most throats twice and deeply before opening their abdomens? Surely the 2 things that identifies a victim likely to have fallen to this mythical and imaginary Jack is deep throat slitting and pm mutilation.

      He wanted money. He was not Jack the Ripper.

        The witness statements say the attacker had visited Ada before - so not the random door knock that Ada told the police. The robbery claim was an excuse to explain how the attack happened

          Hi Michael,
          Thanks for your reply. Good point.
          However also appears he was interrupted

            Craig,

            i see the replies from Michael and pierre, and would like to make a few comments.


            Michael is right in that there is a great deal of difference in the attack, however he does not seem to have considered that this could have been an embryonic attack, someone learning and trying things out.

            If Michael has considered that and discounted it, fair enough, but he did not mention that so I just wonder if he has?


            Pierre appears to be taking the sources at face value, or at least some of them. Maybe he could say what he has based his very clear comment on?



            Steve

              Hi Craig
              absolutely. Ive often said it matches Blotchy and lawendes man.it also fits with an evolution of a serial killer, ala Millwood, as an early botched attempt.

              also, if the motive was merely robbery, why stab her and run away?

              quite tallies with the descriptions I got of him."

                Bow, you say?

                The description broadly fits a certain somebody, and it was a few months after that certain somebody had turned up in the East End.

                  Deb Arif and others also did some great research into Ada Wilson on the other site http://www.jtrforums.com/showthread.php?t=26340

                  Deb suggests her name was actually Ada Drew (nee Tradigan) and she had syphillis.

                  Possible motive for attacks on prostitutes

                    I've Been Saying This For Years!

                    Not only is Ada Wilson's attacker described in many ways like our old friend Mr Blotchy. But some other similar-sounding sandy-haired gent was seen around Eddowes just before she died. As for the double cut to the neck, I believe that's known as an 'insurance cut'. You'd want to be sure, wouldn't you, if your first victim had survived...
