Probably not too popular, but it really doesn't matter about popularity. It is what you believe. If you feel strongly about Maybrick (and you claim you do) than you work on proving it.

Hi Abby.

In a quarter of London with more than its share of immigrants from all over Europe, a strong accent may have been more common than we might think.

My concern with Chapman, and Kozminski alike, is their age. In 1888 both were far too young for this type of crime, in my opinion.

Oh gosh, no, CD -- no apology needed. Chapman is still a viable suspect, my purpose wasn't to push or to dismiss him as a suspect, but to present the true facts about him in one book that Ripper researchers can trust, because much of what has previously been written about him (in chapters of Ripper books, in magazines and online) is nonsense.

Ah, I've been spending a lot of time on few ancient history forums.
Are you keeping well?

I didn't contribute to this thread, in part because I have no name for my 'suspect', or more accurately - my Person of Interest.

I've been mulling over the suspects list for a while and only WH Bury and George Hutchison (British) stand out as being worth further investigation at this point in time in terms of being able to see a good photo of both of them.
I still believe that the Ripper was local and not necessary a true local - but that he lived and worked in the Whitechapel area and was British (English/Scottish/Irish/Welsh). I do not think he was Jewish or American.
