  • October 2013 Issue

    Greetings all,

    In the current issue of the WS Journal, the following survey question was answered by 16 Ripper researchers.

    Is there a generally accepted perception in the Whitechapel Mysteries in which you have a difficult time in regarding as accurate?

    Joe Chetcuti conducted the survey, and he now invites other Ripperologists to share their answer to the question by simply posting it on this thread. Interestingly, all 16 answers given in the WS Journal were different from each other.

    As a token of appreciation, the names of the folks who responded in the journal, as well as the names of those who give an answer on this thread, will get placed in a hat and a winner will be drawn at the end of the month. Spiro Dimolianis has kindly offered an e-book copy of his book as the prize. (Jack the Ripper and Black Magic: Victorian Conspiracy Theories, Secret Societies and the Supernatural Mystique of the Whitechapel Murders).

    Congratulations goes out to all the writers in the Oct 2013 WS Journal issue for their work. Journals like this keep the juices flowing in Ripperology.


    Sincerely,

    Mike

    one bloke

    Hello Mike. Thanks for starting this thread.

    If I understand you properly, the big inaccuracy in my mind is the idea that one bloke made away with all five ladies.

    Cheers.

      That people on the street knew what time it was, in anything resembling a precise, standardized way.

          I think I'm with Damaso Marte on this one...it's the one that has always bugged me the most...

            That Mary Kelly must have told lies about her past.

            That the Dear Boss and Saucy Jack were definitely written by an enterprising journalist.

                That the Graffiti had no connection to anything.

                  That the police were somehow inept.

                    That the police were competent throughout the investigation.

                      I can't accept that the killer(s) was insane. I'm not arguing he was blissfully normal by any stretch, but lunatics by definition are impaired. And this was not the work of an impaired man.

                        I don't think he lived locally I think he visited the area with the intention of committing murder.

                          I also think someone saw him during one of his murders and never came forward to the police.

                            Any thoughts on why he or she would do that?

                              Or any firm evidence to suggest that this might be the case?
