Re your question, about digging up the land in front of the post office, I think they hoped to find remains of Holmes' victims which had escaped burning and might be compared to the Whitechapel victims via surviving documents. Perhaps.

Mudgett is wonderful at ignoring negative evidence and setting off on sidetrips.

Do stick with it, though. There are a few interesting discoveries about the Holmes case itself which are cool.
Hello Pat,

I will stick with it (I'm unsure how many episodes there are[I've seen 4]?)
There's always going to be some bias when someone's presenting their own theory (the temptation to see things from one perspective) but this is pretty much one-way traffic. Holmes is interesting in his own right.

There are eight episodes in the series, and they'll trace Holmes in America from now on. The most interesting is the exhumation of Holmes' grave, which proves what a clever bastard he truly was.

Interesting that Holmes was allegedly in New York when Carrie Brown was murdered.
