I need to read the article.
But more or less I am the same as you-I think they are all weak suspects, some just less weak than others.
Cutbush said in1891 that people were saying he was Jack , but he wasn't he added.
The Sun obviously decided he was at a later date when MM wrote the memoranda.
It seems that he was not a close relation of the police man of the same name so why did MM think he was?
Was it just a mistake? Why did MM not check with the family?
Is it possible that the supposed connection was a blind? Just an excuse to write Cutbush off?
Also the circumstances of the committal and the crimes he was accused of ask a few question.
He has been my outsider for years now.
