  • 110th Anniversary....

    Today is the 110th anniversary of Martha Tabram's murder. All these years later and I am still undecided if she was a ripper victim or not..... Lol
    Best regards,
    Adam

    But it's 120 years since 1888. Or have I been facing the wrong way?

        Perhaps Martha Tabram didn't die in 1888, but had a secret identity and lived until 1898?

          Undecided? A middle-aged prostituted woman is found murdered in the very heart of Ripperland, with a cut to her lower abdomen, three weeks before Polly Nichols met her faith – and you are undecided? Come now ...!

          Also undecided. But only ever so slightly, mind you!

            You didn't have a hand in The Ripper and the Royals did you?

              NO, although someone has accused me of writing the Ripper Diary!! That wasn't me either!

                      Yes, condolences to Martha.

                      It's an interesting case to study forgetting whether she was a Ripper victim or not.
                      This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

                        I've always had her down as a victim...the canon is really just the McNaughten Five..

                        She probably had a more painful death than the others.

                        May she rest in peace.

                          It just goes to show how good the doctors were then. Even being brutally murdered wasn't necessarily fatal.
                          R.I.P. Martha, whoever was responsible.

                            Yes, Jack, I think you may be right about that. Of course, Emma Smith certainly suffered as well, whether we consider her a suspect or not.

                            Best,

                            Cel

                              Unless, of course, she was knocked unconscious by that blow to the head! Which could in itīs turn explain the lack of sounds from her, as well as the fact that she had no defence wounds at all on her hands and arms, in spite of the fact that she was stabbed nigh on forty times, apparently while alive. In fact, there seems to be no stabs in either arms or legs. They are all stabs to the trunk, the neck and the genital area, apart from the one wound that was NOT a stab, but instead a three-inch long and one inch deep cut to the lower abdomen.

                              All in all, maybe we have a killer who deliberately stabs away at a woman who is still alive, but not moving or reacting to the stabs. And somewhere along this process, he changes from stabbing to cutting.

                              Something to ponder for those who say that it was a simple case of frenzy, unrelated to the Ripper.
                              In my world it was not a simple case, it was not frenzy - but it WAS the Ripper.

                              The best, all!
