Mike.

Agreed, if you said that, but these are Abberline's words, not Hutchinson's.
Abberline is not quoting, more like paraphrasing.

It doesn't really matter much. The gist of the scrawled words are that Hutchinson knew Kelly. There is no indication of intimacy by any means there, nor of a close friendship. That is impossible to deduce. At face value, he knew her and saw her about and said, "Hello" on occasion and "What's up". That is if he was telling the truth. If he was lying about everything, his lie was smart enough to show that he knew her enough to check on her, but gave no indication of a deeper friendship which would have put his story in jeopardy. Now, if he lied, he was too stupid to have nuanced his argument like that as his coming forward at all, for no real reason as he wasn't being sought, was asinine.

Hello Mike,

Id agree to that extent Mike... But "coming back from Romford", staying at a place at the end of Dorset Street, showing a policeman around the area to look for the man he saw... all indicates that he is a local. That in turn gives creedance to him knowing Kelly more than now and then.

Additionally, the conversation between them wasn't of the nature of someone rarely seen by Kelly. It was clear that she knew him well enough to ask him for a monetary favour... which is strange... as she was clearly being chatted up by a trick...who...would give her....Money...Duh!

Now that Plays great weight on whether the "Three Years" is of a duration in terms of constant time, or once in a blue moon over a period of Three years??
