Not necessarily, just links the two place up for a lot of people I would think. Some observant socialist Jews obviously visited both places, and maybe quite often. Stride was murdered during one of their conventions.

And all people who met "the model sailor" John Eric Armstrong saw, was a family man with not a bad intention in the world.
Well, not all people, but most. You get my drift.

All the politicians and governors saw in Ted Bundy was a man set to have success in his life.

All Gary Ridgways wife saw in Gary was what she named "the best man I have ever come across".

All people saw in Joachim Kroll was a funny and harmless little man.

All people saw in Russel Edwards was a born military, a gentleman and a family man. But they never saw him in female underwear, of course.

Keep looking, Beaver. Open eyes, please!

As long as person X lives and works outside of a circumference with crime points within the circle, we can route them through all those points of crime in the circle going from one edge of the circumference to another on the opposite side.

We don't know if Cross went to work on the morning of Chapman's murder and, if he did, it's a matter of considerable doubt that he'd have passed through Hanbury Street at the relevant time. Therefore, the "tie" you propose is conjectural, and amounts to little more than "Cross used to walk down Hanbury Street some mornings". Well so did hundreds of others, starting with the residents of Hanbury Street itself, and those who lived in its immediate vicinity.

As far as I can tell, Cross would have had no business being in Berner Street at 1AM on the morning of Stride's death. That his mother lived a few streets away is neither here nor there because, as I've suggested, a Ripper with a handy excuse/alibi of "I was visiting my mother" might have felt inclined to kill rather more victims in that vicinity; as it is, the least Ripper-like murder of the Canon is the only murder that took place there.

Cross would have had no business being around Duke St/Mitre Square at 1:30 or so on the morning of Eddowes' death. No real tie at all, and a true local would have been a more likely candidate for the killer.

Cross would have had no business being around Dorset Street at any of the times usually touted for Kelly's death. No real tie at all, and - again - a true local would be a more likely candidate.
