      I get looked at as a freak before I even mention dear old Jacky boy.

      There are two ways to be fooled, one is to believe what isn't true, the other is to refuse to believe that which is true.

        I am planning a trip to the grave site of Tumblety soon... actually, going to the Grave of Louise Brooks.. but same cemetery....will be my first trip there, odd, since I live so close...only 1 hour away....I am not sure exactly when, but I will take some pictures and post them when I do

          Where's the evidence to suggest that Tumblety was JTR? Because I can't find any.

            To me, the evidence is that Scotland Yard thought him guilty of something (something serious enough to want to follow him to the states)....that doesn't mean he was the Ripper....but that they thought him guilty of something.....And I think that is the point Mike makes in his book, brilliantly I may add, in fact, we have had many discussions on the topic, where I am in the camp that does NOT think Tumblety was Jack....but I do know think at least some in Scotland Yard did think so....If you haven't read the book John Wheat, I think you should, it is a great read, as most have attested to, many people, who disagree with Mike, have called it the best suspect book in years.

              Yep, I don't think he was Jack, (may have been) but the police sure took an interest in him, and not a nice bloke either way, and a great book.

                Considering how closely Tumblety was looked at at the time surely if he was JTR he would have at the very least been charged with some or all the C5.
