  • Ripperologist 121: July 2011

    The cover of the forthcoming issue of Ripperologist magazine features an original painting by artist Cameron Hampton, who worked to produce a likeness of Annie Farmer based on the sole newspaper sketch.

    The issue features an in-depth examination of the attack on Annie Farmer by J G Simons, as well as contributions from Paul Begg, How Brown, Jan Bondeson and Jeff Mudgett.

      kudos

      Hello Adam. Kudos on the latest "Rip." Fun to see a new suspect and delighted that it's a bowler and not a topper he wears.

      Cheers.

        Want more from Mudgett...

        Hi all,

        Enjoyed the Annie Farmer piece in the Rip....well done and evocative of time and place...

        Was less impressed with the H.H. Holmes piece as it seemed largely a rehash of what I read on the Web some 6 months ago........Mudgett could certainly fit some of the JTR descriptions and the handwriting analysis is interesting but evidence placing him in Whitechapel would really be something...........maybe the Book will reveal more?

        Haven't read the other pieces but will as time permits.........

        A good read certainly and the paintings, sketches and photos are always a welcome treat........

        Greg

                Disappointing...

                Wow, I read that review in 14 seconds, it sounds dreadful...
                I'm a big believer in science, evidence, rationality; it appears the book contains none of the above. Oh well, another suspect thrown to the scrap heap of history....for now at least..........I'll await evidence of any kind till my dying breath but certainly don't expect it........I'd also like to thank Cameron for his excellent artwork and will get back to issue #121 for some quality reading........

                  Lis

                  Hello Greg. For some reason, when I read about Holmes, I had a deja vous with Joseph Lis.

                  Cheers.

                      Deja vu all over again...

                      Hello Greg. For some reason, when I read about Holmes, I had a deja vous with Joseph Lis.
                      Hi Lynn, must say I don't know this chap and am almost afraid to ask........Not surprised about your deja vu - it's probably happened many times and will continue...

                      Glad to help, Greg.
                      Thanks ChrisGeorge, always appreciated...

                        killer idea

                        Hello Greg. Joseph Lis (AKA Silver) was a notorious criminal and pimp. He has recently been suggested as a JTR suspect. I think it has yet to be established that he was even in the right place at the right time to be JTR.

                        Once, almost any notorious killer was fair game--Deeming, Bury, Cream, Kelly, et al. Now, about all that remains is Klowsowski.

                        Cheers.

                          I see your point now...

                          In 2007, South African historian Charles van Onselen claimed in the book The Fox and The Flies: The World of Joseph Silver, Racketeer and Psychopath that Silver was the infamous Jack the Ripper serial killer in London in 1888
                          Yes Lynn, I do remember this fellow now that you mention him and I see the similarities with Holmes as in zero evidence.....The suspects keep getting younger....I wonder when a 12 year old will be offered up?

                          Personally, I'm for throwing Klowsowski into the refuse heap with the rest....

                          Greg

                            That would be Aleister Crowley...

                              ah, sweet youth

                              Hello Greg.

                              "I wonder when a 12 year old will be offered up?"

                              Hmmm, you have something against junior achievement? (heh-heh)

                              Cheers.
