I'm gonna have to say "Michael Kidney" did it... though I agree if Golden Messenger was a choice I would have chosen it hands down!

Celee, that was hilarious!

As for the choices, it presumes that BS Man was not Jack the Ripper. Same with Pipeman. Many people people believe one of the other was JTR thus they're indistinguishable in their minds. That will skew the voting.

Yours truly,

Tom Wescott

Default good poll Barry

thanks!

Hope you are enjoying the sunshine.

I think it was JtR...i was doubtful for a bit, but spoke to someone who had done the Ripper tour and he said how close all these murder sites were...that makes me more sure...or two murders happened extremely close geographically and in terms of time, which i doubt.

Hi Barry,

I like this one!

I'm constantly back and forth on this. I guess a few of us are. Right now, I'm leaning toward BS man. From what we think we know, he was there. Was he Jack? Was he Kidney? I can't say. At times I think he was and, other times, I think not. If we don't think BS man or Pipe dude was Jack, then would the results give us an idea of who doesn't believe they were? Probably not since not everyone will vote.

On the other hand, Babybird's remarks about the short distance between the two crime scenes, are enlightening, since I've not taken the tour, except by map.

Sheesh. That's my long-winded post for the day. Thanks, Haloman. Hope you enjoy the trip.

Have you ever read a Ripper book or Stride thread? Eddowes and Stride were killed within a 10 minute walk of each other and within 45 minutes of each other. Modern revisionism has them as unrelated. It's hip to think that, but not entirely logical, in my opinion.

Yours truly,

Tom Wescott

Default Jack done it!

I agree with what Tom said about Liz & Kate being so close together, both in time and location. I say it was Jack.

>>I wonder if we have a modern tendency to believe that random vicious killers were 'coming out of the woodwork' in 1888, just because they seem to be doing so nowadays?

Best regards, Archaic
