Default Hyam Hyams: Portrait of a Suspect

Since we have empty folders for all sorts of suspects, I thought I'd try to fill some of them up.

Here's a link to the dissertation "Hyam Hyams: Portrait of a Suspect" by Wolf Vanderlinden, from Ripper Notes #27.

Dan,

Good thinking. Links to dissertations that perhaps many haven't read, are sure to raise questions and create posts.

Mike

Hi Dan,

Thanks for putting this back on here. I pondered it several times before the computer monster got us. I did a little scouting around but didn't turn up much. The name Hyam is a lot more common than one word think at first.
Anyway, thanks.

Best Wishes,

Celesta

Looks like a great suspect on paper, lots of circumstansial evidence and is a very interesting proposition. The only thing that would rule him out for me is his appearence. He certainly doesn't look like someone who blends in very well. In fact he looks rather scary.

he does indeed look scary, and also almost a stereotype of a jew, which the police thought the ripper may have been. he is one of my more favoured suspects since i read about him here on casebook

Hyams was 35 yrs in 1888 so I presume the 'scary picture' was taken several years later. Maybe he had a look that helped him blend in better at a younger age?
