It's in my article in Ripperologist 139. If you're a subscriber to Ripperologist, you can access the back issues through those links that come with each issue. You can also find it on page 101 of Beadle's Jack the Ripper Unmasked. If neither of those work for you, pm me your email address and I'll send you a scan sometime tomorrow.

Ive just had a look on the Bury website. Hes an interesting suspect. In my opinion one of the few worth considering. Although its been a while since i read the three books reviewed but i recall, at the time, thinking that Bill Beadle’s book ‘Unmasked’ was one of the best that id read.

I need to read more and update myself on Bury (i did briefly meet Bill Beadle once at a Cloak And Dagger Club meeting years ago...nice guy.) My only ‘concern’ and its one that i have in general with ripperology, is over confidence. Steve appears to speak as if the case is over and its settled that Bury was guilty.

I live less than 30 minutes in a car from Stourbridge by the way.

Good one Herlock. I too think Bury needs some more investigating as do quite a few names, who I wouldn't mind see obliterated from this site

Hi BB,

It’s always going to be a source of heated debate if we try and come up with a ranking list for suspects. Barring conspiracy theory I’d think that we can safely eliminated Prince Eddy due to court circulars proving him to be elsewhere. We can eliminate Neil Cream, Van Gogh (I hate even mentioning him) because they weren’t in the country. Likewise HH Holmes because it can’t be shown that he was in the country at the time. So that trims the herd a little.

Then there’s ‘suspects’ like Mann and Bachert who, as far as I can recall, were suspects purely because they were in the area at the time! So in the absence of anything like evidence I tend to ‘dump’ these too.

Fanciful one’s like Lewis Carroll shouldn’t really detain anyone. The case for Sickert appears to only convince Patricia Cornwell. And The Royal Conspiracy has been thoroughly disproven.

Maybrick is totally reliant on the diary and as we stand the weight of evidence is heavily in favour of forgery.

We have witnesses like Hutchinson and Lechmere that some believe could have been guilty. Debate will go on and we cannot completely exonerate either. We can only comment and debate the likelihood.

I don’t think that Tumblety was the ripper but he has to be in the ‘genuine suspect’ class. Less so Chapman in my opinion.

And so for me, and I certainly wouldn’t bet any cash in it, the best remaining are Kosminski/Cohen, Druitt (I know, people tend to dismiss him) and Bury.

I still think it’s likeliest that the Ripper has yet to be named and probably never will.
