Hmm, interesting thought. But the paragraph it's from is headed "scenes from the inquest" (of Annie Chapman), so pretty sure it refers to the murders.
It's funny to think, if the Dear Boss letter had never been written, this could be "Casebook: Red Terror". Or perhaps not...would the case even be remembered today with such a generic nickname?
