But there had to be more than one killer, i.e. neither Chapman or Bury could have killed the latter victims that have been potentially linked to JtR.

But the point is according to Canter's analysis the vast majority of serial killers pose their victims. Therefore it isn't unusual behaviour. Therefore it proves nothing.
