They're not "completely different". Only one capital "H" differs materially, and that can be due to a number of reasons: e.g. a variation caused by a "cold start"; rustiness/lack of practice in...

Quite so. Furthermore, there were many other potential dumping sites in the Thames closer to the East End, without having to travel all the way to Battersea Bridge.

Don't be absurd, Fish. Nobody is going to kill in the East End and transport the dismembered remains the best part of ten miles to the West in order to dump them in the Thames or on land.

There isn't one, as far as I know. Dew's account of his (probably exaggerated) role in the case appears in one chapter of "I caught Crippen".
