Could the incident whereby Schwartz, evidently mistaken as the murderer by some, was "chased" from the scene, lie at the root of the "interrupted killer" theory?
I find it interesting particularly in context with this Sam..."Complaint is also made [?] [?] [?] there was experienced in obtaining a policeman, and it is alleged that from the time the body was discovered fifteen minutes had elapsed before a constable could be [?] from Commercial-road. This charge against the police, however, requires confirmation."

I think the discovery was closer to 12:45 than it was 1am, and that might also explain why someone was seen chasing someone at round 12:45. I assume that the Echo is a paper published daily....therefore in this case prior to a story coming forward by one Israel Schwartz?

Isn't it more likely that, rather than a garbled version of Schwartz's flight from Pipeman, this is a garbled account of the two men who were known to have run down Fairclough Street, ie Kozebrodsky and Diemshutz?

That's exactly what I think it is Joshua.

Interesting conclusion Jon, particularly since a time of around quarter to one is mentioned. Although Ive been suggesting an earlier discovery time for years here. A note.......it would appear that no-one saw Diemshutz and Kozebrodski, since Kozebrodski said within an hour of the murder that he was sent out alone by Louis. Funny that not one club witness mentions that there was actually 3 search parties, Issac, Morris and Louis,...nor did Diemshitz mention that he sent Issac out alone. And who exactly was this Issacs that went out with Louis...how come he wasn't interviewed.
