    • I don't understand why so many votes think the Ripper and the Torso Killer are the same person.

      * The Ripper killings had a strong emotional content based on the excessive mutilations. The Torso Killer's cutting up the bodies appears to be functional, not emotional, done to reduce the bodies into pieces small enough to carry.
      * The Ripper liked to pose the bodies of his victims and sometimes their persona effects. The Torso Killer did not.
      * The Ripper killed his victims on the spot, as testified to by several police detectives and surgeons. The Torso Killer transported the bodies to where they were found.
      * The Torso Killer disposed of his victims heads in a way they were never found, probably in an attempt to conceal their identities. The Ripper made no attempt to hide his victims' identities.
      * Based on period surgeons' observations, the Torso Killer probably had knowledge of anatomy comparable to a butcher, while the Ripper did not even have that much skill.
      * The Torso Killer appears to have operated over a significantly wider area and over a much longer time than the Ripper.
      * The Ripper was much more of a risk taker because of the far more public locations of his killings and the time the Ripper was willing to spend at those locations doing more mutilations, taking organs, and posing the victims. Further evidence of risk taking is the Ripper appears to have been interrupted twice, appears to have killed twice in one night, and his continued killing in spite of the increased wariness of the general population, as well as increased patrolling by the police and the Whitechapel vigilance Committee.
      * The Ripper liked taking internal organs as trophies. The Torso Killer took heads, and probably not as trophies.

        At the risk of bolstering your theorizing that Jack and Torso man were the same Fisherman, I believe its either the rolled down fabric of a stocking or something tied there, even an elastic band, possibly to stem the bleeding. If correct, that would infer her heart was still beating at the time. It is something I wouldn't be surprised to see ...dare I say it...on a victim being dismembered. Problem with that is its well below the joint.

          hi fiver

          The Ripper killings had a strong emotional content based on the excessive mutilations. The Torso Killer's cutting up the bodies appears to be functional, not emotional, done to reduce the bodies into pieces small enough to carry.
          I don't see any obvious emotional content in any of the ripper slayings, except maybe tabram and her excessive stab wounds. excessive mutilations yes, but that dosnt mean it was emotional. He could have gone about his mutilations in very non emotional "clinical" fashion. same as torsoman. and while torsoman probably did cut up into smaller pieces for ease in transport, it also seems he did it because he simply enjoyed it. Both torsoman and ripper victims showed no obvious signs of torture, killed quickly and all mutilations post mortem. they were all about post mortem mutilation-cutting up of the female body. not sure if we can really determine emotion from it.

          The Ripper liked to pose the bodies of his victims and sometimes their persona effects. The Torso Killer did not.
          I think they were both posed-or displayed. and in both series they are displayed in odd and public ways/places.

          The Ripper killed his victims on the spot, as testified to by several police detectives and surgeons. The Torso Killer transported the bodies to where they were found.
          yes-which could be easily explained if the torso victims he had his chop shop available, while the others he did not-and had to kill on the streets. the situation changes but the urge is still there.

          The Torso Killer disposed of his victims heads in a way they were never found, probably in an attempt to conceal their identities. The Ripper made no attempt to hide his victims' identities
          .

          not totally true.The totenham torso head was found and the face was mutilated in the same way as eddowes. the 1873 torso-the face was found, scalped off the head. so in either case the taking of the heads dosnt really point to hiding identity. something more is going on here.

          Based on period surgeons' observations, the Torso Killer probably had knowledge of anatomy comparable to a butcher, while the Ripper did not even have that much skill.
          while different doctors had different opinions as to the skill level and what kind of skill-in both series doctors saw considerable skill. IMHO they both showed at least considerable skill with a knife and anatomical knowledge, while actual surgical experience is open to debate.

          The Torso Killer appears to have operated over a significantly wider area and over a much longer time than the Ripper.
          both series overlap in location and time and thats good enough for me. whats of great interest is that they both appear to end at the same time with pinchin and mackenzie.

          The Ripper was much more of a risk taker because of the far more public locations of his killings and the time the Ripper was willing to spend at those locations doing more mutilations, taking organs, and posing the victims. Further evidence of risk taking is the Ripper appears to have been interrupted twice, appears to have killed twice in one night, and his continued killing in spite of the increased wariness of the general population, as well as increased patrolling by the police and the Whitechapel vigilance Committee
          .

          I think both series show a huge amount of risk. you've already pointed out the ripper risk. torso man took huge risks in killing in his own place, tying murder location to him, went to extremely risky measures in where and how he dumped torsos/ parts-the Tottenham torso, inside new SY building, pinchin. and the transporting to these places, having victims on his person for apparently long periods in public was incredibly risky. chancing being caught red handed just like the ripper.

          The Ripper liked taking internal organs as trophies. The Torso Killer took heads, and probably not as trophie
          internal organs were missing from several of the torso victims, and all had post mortem mutilation above and beyond what was needed for dismemberment. the head/faces were targeted in both series so I imagine he had an interest in the heads, if he did keep them, as trophies of a sort.


          to me the main difference, and its a biggee (and im surprised you didn't explicitly mention it) is that none of the ripper victims were dismembered, which is mainly why im only at about 80% they were the same man and not totally convinced. but as I mentioned, that could be due to the killers and the crime scene circs.

          To me there basically the same-post mortem mutilator who enjoys cutting up women.

          now that's a lot of "interpretation"- from both of us, so if you want to just look at the plain cold hard facts of points of similarity:

          same time frame
          same general location
          same victimology
          all post mortem mutilation
          knife used
          ruse used to get victims where he wants them
          faces targeted
          vertical gashes to midsection
          stomach flesh removed in sections
          internal organs removed
          privates targeted
          rings removed
          left in odd and shocking public places
          huge risks involved
          both series end same time
          unsolved

          of course they could still be two post mortem mutilators operating in the same place at the same time targeting unfortunates, but with this and all the other similarities I find it too much of a coincidence and lean heavily they were the same man-the torsoripper.

            privates targeted? On purpose? When?

                Fine. Most of us knew how to hotwire cars, so we didn’t take keys at parties. If you got drunk and passed out they would confiscate your boots and socks. As it was a gravel driveway at the apartment complex, that was sufficient to keep people from driving drunk. But a:I couldn’t Hotwire a car and B: the guy who took the boots and the socks went home before the rest of us woke up, so we were all trapped there for an extra day. So I decided to make sure my boots would not be confiscated again. Even if it meant cutting the laces off when I got home. Teenage logic.

                  lol. A. if your drunk the pain of gravel driveway on barefeet is negligable. it never would have stopped me. B. you could also just walk on the grass next to the driveway. C. if you already passed out chances are your not driving any where any way right?

                  i thought you got your boots stolen because its a rough crowd/ bad part of town lol.

                  either way still hilarious.

                  ok two of the torsos had vaginas cut as part of the mutilations (i forgot which omes, but pretty sure pinchin was one) but apparently the debate is if it was intentional or not. one instance i would say ok unintentional, but two, not so much.

                  whats of amazing coincidence is the the tottenham torso head was found and her face was mutilated almost exactly like kate eddowes.
                  what say you about that?

                    Well, Kate Eddowes have a near labial cut I’m pretty sure was a mistake, because it terminates oddly. But otherwise to that I say “interesting!”. I’ve always found it interesting that so many people see a sexual component to the ripper murders, when none of the usual sexual markers are targeted. So where they are targeted, I find that interesting. I’m not convinced either way on the subject of the torsoripper.
