Phillips had been away at County Durham with Insp. Roots to help in the investigation of the murder of Jane Beadmore, whose murder was initially thought to possibly be connected to the atrocities in Whitechapel. Phillips only arrived at the inquest while Baxter was finishing up his summary (which Phillips did not hear.) The H division surgeon was asked a few questions by a reporter without knowing what Baxter had actually said.

I believe the good doctor regretted doing this considering the commotion that resulted, because he seemed to avoid the press from then on.
