  • Pierre cocked up the code in one of his earlier posts and it's been copied wrongly for about a dozen or more posts, altering the name of the person being quoted in all those posts.
    Pierre does it regularly.

      Nobody is destroying your precious sources, Pierre. Why is it that only YOUR interpretation of the sources is correct? A lot of us here are really not looking for the killer. We enjoy researching and finding archives that add to the case. Archives that are rearing their heads after all these years and pertain to the case. Or we just enjoy taking a deeper look into some of the interesting lives of people in the Victorian era. To find the killer, I'm afraid, is too late. Good luck in your fruitless search though. Even if you are fortunate to have some pretty good evidence, good luck convincing the mob.

      I've had it up to my own eyeballs with you, though. It's the first time in my life I have felt like I was speaking to a robot. Thanks for that experience, I guess!

          I agree that we have nothing which gives a clear picture of if the eyes were damaged or not. the sources do not contain enough information on that to allow us to make an hypotheses.


          Of course I know that will not do and I am not suggesting it.


          You seem to have misunderstood what I have said. Have you misread something as a quote from me when it is from someone else?

          The hypotheses from Fisherman was that the eyes were deliberately left undamaged.

          I have said:

          I don't think one can say they were not damaged!
          Even if they were, it cannot be shown this was intentional!

          I have not mentioned common sense. that was someone else!


          Either I am misunderstanding what you are posting or you are misunderstanding what I am saying.

          For once we are in total agreement on something, rare I know.

          so please don't have a go at me about something I have not said

          Hi Steve,

              Way off topic again, but I want to address Pierre's point and then be done with it.

              A few months back I found a news clip of the death of John Arnold. Nowhere in the clip did it say this was the John Arnold of Pinchin torso fame or anything close. It just said his age at death and what he did for a living. Using good old common sense, matching age and occupation, it is easy to see it is no doubt John Arnold of Pinchin torso fame. Pierre would disagree, I'm sure, because the article didn't spell it out for him, yet he will use a cryptic message about an address for Miller's Court in a news clip.

                Another interesting thing is the date of the sighting as 3rd June 9pm when the doctors, Bond and Kempster, both said at inquest that the remains were consistent with a time of death 24 hours before they were washed up on Tues 4th June in the a.m.

                edit: Looking back, they said within 24 hours, so that fits okay.
                The Times 5th July says it may not have been a rowing hat at all....

                "Jennie Lee, of 14, Turks-row, said she had known the deceased Lizzie Jackson two years. She confirmed the former evidence as to the destitution of the girl. Witness last saw her on the Monday before Whit Sunday, and she was then with a man who had on light moleskin trousers, dark cloth coat, and a rough cap, and she thought he was a navvy. She was wearing the check ulster and skirt produced, and went away with the man to Battersea."

                  • Thanks Dusty and Joshua. The descriptions are all more or less the same, there's no major discrepancy is there? I mention him looking like a navvy in my casebook dissertation. There would have been plenty of work in the area and I think it was Jerry who asked what we know about the men working in the Whitehall basement vault. If a rowing hat was similar to the one in the picture posted by Jerry, then a navvies hat is very similar in general, a soft cloth hat with a peak:

                    He certainly doesn't sound like the type of man you'd expect to be involved in the back street abortion trade does he?

                      With Elizabeth Jackson there may have been additional reasons for the jury bringing in a verdict of 'wilful murder'. You should consider that other evidence might have been produced but not reported on to make them come to that verdict. A witness saw Elizabeth with a man at a time that must have been close to her death and at the inquest the name of her 'Charley' and a mention of a man named 'Fred' came up but was not elaborated on in the newspapers.
                      That may have been significant, or, it could be that despite what doctor Bond had said about there being no signs of instrument use to bring on an abortion and the foetus was removed after death, it could be the jury doubted that evidence and brought in a wilful murder verdict against that evidence in belief that there was an abortion. Juries didn't always follow medical witness testimony.

                        How do you know he wasn't taking her to one ?

                        Being even more realistic. You cant prove he murdered her can you?

                        I see from reading your dissertation that it is believed she may have been murdered in or near Battersea Park an area where she was known to frequent some 30 mins or more away from Whitechapel

                        Looking at that scenario then, why would a killer kill her in a park and then cut up the body.Why not simply leave it in the park? The longer he would have spent with the victims body the more risk of detection.

                        Another problem with that scenario is the disposal of the body parts, they could not have all been taken away at the same time so again more problems for a would be killer.

                        There are always two sides to every argument !!!!!!!

                        Two other parts of the Jackson torso which seems to not want to be discussed and I can see why with its implications to the murder scenario, is firstly part of her body was found wrapped in a specific type of material

                        This was how Macnaghten decsribes it

                        "One of the last portions of the body which turned up was enveloped in a curious piece of white cloth, such as is used by certain students engaged on a particular kind of work"

                        What certain students is he referring to, medical ?

                        I would also mention the report which mentions the fact that a swab had been inserted in her rectum. This is interesting is it not? A killer and dismemberer hardly likely to do this?

                        So what is the explanation for this swab?

                        These swabs could have been used to prevent an involuntary bowel movement during labour, or some other procedure which involved an extreme amount of pain for the patient and so we get back to a possible death during or as a result of some unlicensed procedure.

                        I am sure you and the other members of "Murder Inc" on here will come up with other explanations to negate this very plausible one.

                          Come Debra on you are getting as bad as Fisherman making it up as you go along to suit your theory.

                          Was there any evidence from the inquest to show that anything was asked to be withheld.? No ! Had there been it would have been reported as it was in the case of Chapman.

                          The coroner simply "suggested" that is a long way from what some coroners do and that is to direct a jury to come to a specific verdict.

                          As I said it was shambolic, with nothing to show a cause of death, and that it was a coroners inquest is for, if there is no proven cause of death it should be an open verdict.

                            Trevor, you are telling me to consider things that originated with me! I was the first person to find that Elizabeth Jackson had a piece of linen in her back passage! It was me that found and posted that this was a technique used by abortionists. I was telling the story of Elizabeth's case, therefore I included the progression made by the police and doctors in their investigations. No one said Elizabeth was definitely killed near Battersea Park, it was an idea suggested by someone. When will you realise that research involves reading and weighing up all sources available and giving other people the chance to do the same? I post when I can see that you are deliberately making things up to suit your own agenda,
                            Whatever problems you envisage a person had with dumping the body that would also apply in any scenario. Whoever dismembered Elizabeth, had the same risk in dumping the body parts!! Being an abortionist dumping body parts does not make you invisible!

                            Again, I see you like to quote Macnaghten when it suits yet when he disagrees you dismiss him as 'unreliable.'

                            And there you go again with your patronising comments. If I posted what I really thought about you I would be banned instantly! instead I have more respect and the good grace to realise that people are entitled to their own opinion when basing their conclusions on facts.

                              I didn't say anything was 'withheld', I said how do you know that all the evidence that went towards a verdict of wilful murder was reported in the press? Who was Fred then? His name is mentioned but there is nothing further said about him, My point is that we are not always privy to the full inquest blow by blow in the press.

                                Thank you for the sermon, it is duly noted, and I did refer to your dissertation and quite rightly so as what you wrote is totally relevant to the matter being discussed on this thread.

                                As to Battersea Park area being the murder location it is not unreasonable to believe that was the case given her haunts and Battersea park being nearby and with its bad reputation and where some of the body parts were fished out of the thames.

                                It was you who quoted Macgnahten in the first instance. In this case I never said he was right or wrong, but you seem to stand by him in your dissertation so how can I argue against the worlds authority on the thames torsos !

                                Now, perhaps you would care to kindly address the points I raised. If not I am sure other members of your fan club will rush to your aid.
