As for press articles, well they don't all support you Jon.
Take the Morning Advertiser of 10 November (which you previously quoted):
"Dr. Phillips, the divisional surgeon of police, soon arrived, and was followed by Dr. Bond, of Westminster, divisional surgeon of the A division, Dr. J. R. Gabe, of Mecklenburgh-square, and two or three other surgeons. They made a preliminary examination of the body..."
That is EXACTLY what I am saying occurred.
Fair enough, but that only raises the question of defining what they meant by "Preliminary Examination".
Are you aware that this was an agency story, and the same story appeared in the Daily News of the same date, yet the Daily News, in a later paragraph report:
"The Central News states, ........... A post mortem examination was held by the medical authorities summoned by the police, and the surgeons did not quit their work until every organ had been accounted for, and placed as closely as possible in its natural position."
So the Morning Advertiser did not publish the whole story.
