My initial answer to the question in the title of the thread was going to be 'f**k knows!' But on reflection my answer would now be.....the same! It's a mystery. If I recall correctly Ostrog wasn't even in the country at the time of the murders. It does appear that his name was just chosen at random to flesh out the memorandum. We would all love to know how he arrived at the 3 names. Books have been written about Druitt and Kosminski as candidates. Has anyone ever written a book on Ostrog proposing him as Jack?
Anyone fancy the job?
Me? Err I'm a little busy right now. Sorry, got to go, bye
