I'm familiar with higher-resolution images of the Kelly photographs than even the ones you used, but the ones I used are good enough for the purpose of this discussion.

If the killer had dug his thumb into her calf and gouged the flesh as you suggest, I think that might have been described too, yes?

Correct. There's every probability that Kłosowski wasn't even in Cable Street, but still resident in the West India Dock area, at the time of Tabram's murder.
