Mike my shortened descriptions were taken from the Eddlestone encyclopaedia summary, except that the errors pointed out by Hunter were my own bolt-ons. It is remarkable how similar they are though.

Apologies that is right. Also he saw the suspect before Stride's murder, not Eddowes. But too late to correct.
