Who said anything about LARGE flaps? The only one who fits into that category is Mary Kelly.

As a thought-experiment, substitute "corpse" for "orange", and "removal of abdominal flaps" with "peeling". How many different ways of peeling an orange are there? If you were to find two partly-peeled oranges, both of which had had some of the skin peeled off in segments with a knife, would you think that it was beyond doubt that the same person peeled them?

NB: you found the fruit in a densely populated city, with one orange found in one district, and the other in a different borough 12 miles away.
Kind regards, Sam Flynn
