I just finished reading Le livre Rouge de Jack L'Éventreur by Stéphane Bourgoin (the Red Book of Jack the Ripper)
I don't know about his sources (the book is a non fiction, and he doesn't produce his opinion about who was JtR), but he says that she was screaming in the streets about being attacked by JtR. She had some light wound at her throat, made by a dull blade knife, and she had coins hidden in her mouth. She had stolen them from a potential customer and ran away screaming he was the ripper. The wound was self inflicted.

Now, this is strange. On the other hand, Bourgoin's book seem well documented.
