    You got there before me, Herlock!

He wasn't looking to see what was in the yard, but concentrating on the state of the cellar door. That done, it was on to fixing his boot, and then leaving. As I've said before, I'm by no means convinced that the body was already there, but I think it could have been.
      Yup, very well put. And the long and the short of it is - once again - that it cannot be ruled out that he simply missed the body.

        What do you think Cadosch heard?

          I am not sure that Cadosch heard anything at all, to begin with. After all, people do sometimes like to be part of great things. Like the Ripper saga, for example. There were people a plenty offering up stories about the "Murder!" cry after the Millers Court murder, and it was apparent that they were not all being truthful. As I keep saying, I think the Long and Cadosch material is too good to be true. It sort of meets all the requirements anybody could have to believe that Chapman was killed in the back yard of 29 Hanbury Street at around 5.30, and that's just too convenient for my taste.

          But let's say that Cadosch was a decent and honest fellow, and that he did try his best to explain what it was he heard! If so, I think he heard somebody saying "No" from one of the adjoining backyards for some reason. And that really does not amount to proof of anything at all.

          Ar the end of the day, one of the things we can confidently exclude as being what he heard is Annie Chapmans murder. Phillips was never going to be that wrong, I'm afraid. She was cold and had onsetting rigor, and that disenables Cadosh to have overheard the murder.

            What did his duties involve that would involve using a sharp knife?

              Earlier you called me closed-minded yet I’ve said that Phillips could have been correct and yet your position is the categorical one that allows for no doubt?

              Throughout the history of the study of this case has any forensic medical expert stepped up and said that it would have been impossible for a Victorian Doctor to have been wrong in those circumstances? Modern Doctors have commented on other aspects of the case what about this one?

                And how do you sit facing right on a step?

                      With the axis of the body turned to the right, from the waist up. Surely, Joshua, you do not rule out that somebody sitting down on some stairs actually can turn to either side? Admittedly, the bum will not turn other than to a small degree, but all of the upper body will. If you want more explicit examples of people sitting "sideways" on stairs, google the phrase "sitting on the stairs" and click on "pictures".

                        Actually, you said something along the lines that you will never accept that Richardson may have missed out on the body if it was there, regardless of what diagram you are shown. To me, that IS close-minded. If you now say that he could have done so and that Phillips may have been right, then welcome aboard, Herlock!

                        I am aware of no doctor commenting on the Chapman case specifically, it has been more a case of medicos pointing out the overall problems involved in estimating the TOD.

                          So no closed mind, eh?

                            Doesn't appear that he was, or that he sidled meekly out of the door facing right, which he'd have to have opened wide enough to allow himself to sit on the second step and place his feet on the flagstones. His testimony seems pretty emphatic to me:

                            Did you notice any object in the yard? - No, sir. I could not have failed to notice the deceased if she had been there then.
                            Did you sit on the top step? - No, the second step.
                            Where were your feet? - On the flags of the yard.
                            You must have been quite close to where the body was found? - Quite right, sir. If she had been there at the time I must have seen her.

                                i couldnt beleive it when i first heard it also. its getting light, people are getting up, amd he strikes in the backyard mere feet from the residents.

                                but tje evidence points to thats exactly what he did. crazy.
