    Okay, so we're probably going to be disagreeing a little bit about the chronology of things here, but no matter.

    I was just asking why you stated the police decided no cart was used. Did the police conclude that?




    This was just a thought I had when you stated there was no indication that more killers were involved. I believe the bruises on her arms are consistent with her being held tight. Since there was no cause of death discernible on her body, she was likely strangled or had her throat cut. Which is difficult to do when holding her arms. She also had bruises on her back. So overall, the bruises are consistent with her being assaulted by more than one man.
    hi kattrup
    jerry dunlop has provided alot of interesting evidence that the torsoripper was actaully more than one man working in concert and while i usually dont go for conspiracy theories his research has really come up with some intriguing possibilities. are you familiar with jerrys work?

    • A possible explanation for the gash down the midsection.

      The chemise was entire, although at first site it had the appearance of being in pieces, as it had been cut open from top to bottom.

        Thanks Abby.

        There really isn't even a hint of conspiracy involved in the multiple killer theory. If you read the link I am providing here, The Philadelphia Times report in December of 1888, you will see the London City police held the view that Eddowes and Stride were killed by two separate hands. A copy of this news clipping was included in the Metropolitan Police files, btw.

        Here is a quote from the clip for example.

        The city detectives then early in the first week of October came to a definite conclusion, namely, that the two women met their death at the hands of different men

            lol. Thanks for your confidence in my research. I appreciate it. However, I have so many irons in this fire. To be honest, other than Wildbore/John Arnold, I can't settle on any one area to focus on. I think I must have at least 10 men and 1 woman that I feel could be involved somehow, some way. The woman can be taken light heartedly, although, she was certainly a violent one. I am enjoying the history of these people though, and that keeps me going. People like Matthew Cleary, who I feel is the "real" John Cleary suggested by Claude Mellor to be involved in the Pinchin crime. I have significant evidence of him being one and the same man. Whether he was involved with John Arnold or not is up for question.

            Charles LeGrand, John Meiklejohn, The Conways, Charles Hammond, Jack Saul, Franklin Sydney King, Walter Selwen and Albert Bachert top the list as well of interesting characters and possibilities of people that COULD play a role in all this. This is all for another time and another thread, of course. I also can't forget our young friend, Isaac Lewis Jacobs. The young man that was heading to Mc Carthy's at Millers Court to pick up supper for his brother at 12:45 a.m. on the night of Alice McKenzies murder.

            P.S. I am leaving LeGrand for the more talented research of Tom Wescott and Debs Arif. They know much more about him than I do. But I like him [LeGrand] as a contributor, none the less.

              Then again, you were not aware of the sack imprints. Although the source was there. So that is what I propose - that I may have missed out on or forgotten something that could have a bearing on the matter. I find that whenever I look into a specific detail, a rereading of the material can often shed light on things.

              Okay, so we're probably going to be disagreeing a little bit about the chronology of things here, but no matter.

              I was just asking why you stated the police decided no cart was used. Did the police conclude that?

              I beleive what I stated was that the police could find no tracks from a cart and that noone had heard one (there were people sleeping in the arches), and so they realized they may need to prioritize a manual transport. The initial problem was your belief that this murder was the likeliest to have involved a cart transport.

              This was just a thought I had when you stated there was no indication that more killers were involved. I believe the bruises on her arms are consistent with her being held tight. Since there was no cause of death discernible on her body, she was likely strangled or had her throat cut. Which is difficult to do when holding her arms. She also had bruises on her back. So overall, the bruises are consistent with her being assaulted by more than one man.
              The marks can of course have been inflicted at any stage, and so there is no reason - to my mind - to believe in two persons. Nor to rule it out.

                Hey Jerry,

                Maybe you could add Joseph Issacs to that gang....seriously though, I had a thought yesterday that what if Issacs is the Issacs that Louis went out with, and also Strides killer, and he is also the other "Joe" that Mary was seeing while seeing Barnett. The one that used to treat her ill. Issac Kozebrodski said that Louis sent him out alone to seek help, Louis said he and Issac[s] went out. What if that wasn't a misquote?

                I know he was later apprehended and they, for whatever reason, felt he had an alibi, but those can be manufactured too.

                  I was referring more to the reason he left the torso in Pinchin Street.

                      The Inquest for the Pinchin street victim shows the disarticulation, plus "a wound 15ins. long through the external coat of the abdomen" and "On the outer side of the left forearm, about 3in. above the wrist, was a cut about 2in. in length, and half an inch lower down was another cut." Where are these autopsy reports that show far greater mutilation?

                        Case IV September 11 1889 Pinchin Street Whitechapel

                        Remains consisted of the trunk and arms of a female body, head cut off at lower part of neck, thighs sparated at hip joints.
                        Rigor mortis had passed off, the cut surfaces of the hips were black and dry but the surfaces at the neck moist and red.
                        The skin of the abdomen had been cut by a vertical incision, running from two inches below the ensiform cartilage downwards and ending on the left side of the external genitals, just opening the vagina but not opening the peritoneal cavity. There were a number of small round bruises on the forearms and arms, most on the inner surface of the forearms and varying in size from a shilling to a sixpence.On the left wrist were 2 cuts one just grazing the skin.
                        Incision sparating the head was 2 in number. The spinal column was divided at the junction of the 5th and 6th cervical vertebrae.
                        Thighs separated at hip joints, the skin cut through by 2 or 3 sweeping circular incisions. the capsule of the hip joints were opened and the heads neatly disarticulated.

                        Doctors inferences

                        Age above 25 but not yet reached menopause, possibly over 25 but under 40. Had not borne children. Apparently not a virgin. Skin fair and hair dark brown, hands shapely and the skin soft with right little finger showing a small circular hardening, as might be made by writing.
                        No mark on the ring finger.
                        Immediate cause of death was syncope, as shown by the condition of the heart and general bloodlessness of the tissue which would indicate hemorrage as the cause of syncope.
                        All cuts made after death with a sharp knife and all made from left to right except those separating the right thigh and right arm which had been carried from right to left across the flexure joints so probably done by a right handed man.
                        The incisions were made with skill and design and were skillfully performed as by a man who had some knowledge of the position of joints and the readiest means of separating limbs, such as a butcher or slaughterer would possess. No secial knowledge of anatomy of the human body shown.
                        Your evening of swing has been cancelled.

                          Just having had surgery on the 6/7 vertebral disc, separating the head at 5/6 vertebral disc is kind of mad. That’s almost below the level of shoulders. My incision is just above the clavicle and is a 45 degree angle down to the spine. I can’t imagine why someone would cut that low. And I think they would need to sit the corpse upright in order to even accomplish it, which is just weird.
                          The early bird might get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

                            Hello Fiver, and welcome to the boards! The post you are quoting is not about the Pinchin Street torso but instead about Elizabeth Jackson (EJ) - who suffered very great mutilation.

                                Hi Fiver,

                                The Ultimate Jack the Ripper Sourcebook [Evans and Skinner] is one place that contains a more detailed report from Dr. Percy Clark that details the cuts to the left forearm. You are correct that it refers to the Pinchin Street torso.
