Is true that someone has SERIOUSLY suggested Queen Victoria as a suspect? It was mentioned very briefly in passing on one of the podcasts, but I recall hearing the idea before somewhere else. Supposedly HRH was running around in the nude hacking up whores.

Right .... With Gull, Churchill, Anderson and the rest of the Keystone Koppers chasing HRH in Netty's coach. Can you imagine Gladstone directing the whole thing from a Victorian version of the Big Board in a secure room under Buckingham Palace? And a bunch of scantedly-clad (for the 1880s) 'Bond Beauties' moving little figures on the map (with suspiciously phallic-shaped pushers)?

Sorry, I lost myself. Nevermind.

(Got a GREAT idea for a book, Mr. Publisher, Sir!!!)

I'm going to hang on to my Emma Smith theory for a while.
Banged up can also be interpreted as injured, perhaps a fall,something a woman who has lost a lot of blood and feeling faint may be prone to.
Neither is it impossible she was pregnant, a woman who had a lot of unprotected sex is more likely to become pregnant?

It wasn`t just a fall, witnesses at the inquest described how her ear had nearly been torn off.

Also, the Doctors who attended to her would have noticed if she had been pregnant (especially if the alleged abortion only took place a few hours earlier)

An otitis gone wild, I suppose.

Cheers Jon

Default I gave at the orifice.

Hello David. Or possibly an inept abortion doctor who had trouble distinguishing small orifices and their locations.

Cheers.

The Basques, Dave ?
They were busy with Roland at Ronceveaux at the time Emma Smith was aborting.

Cheers
