Default Mary Jane Kelly found?

Has anyone read the book by Wynne Weston Davis regarding the identity of Mary Jane Kelly ("The Real Mary Kelly"? How does it seem?

It may well be that Elizabeth Weston Davies was the Whitechapel murder victim known as 'Mary Jane Kelly', the few chapters explaining how this came to be are very interesting and quite plausible; but convincing the reader that Francis Spursheim Craig was her killer and, or the killer of the other four victims it does not! Well not this reader anyway.

Hi,

I suppose it depends on what can be proved happened to her.

Best wishes.

No, because that's Lizzie Williams.

Hi,
Lets be perfectly honest, none of us know, who Mary Kelly was, or her killer. regardless of ''Case closed'' or D.NA. possibilities.
Sorry for the negativity, but I have been around a long time..
Richard.

This is just a re-run of the classic "Dr Stanley" story by Leonard Matters. Nice story, no facts. Try again, Dr Weston-Davies, and do check out these boards before putting pen to paper - did he really use a photo of Lizzie Williams in his book and claim it was Mary Jane Kelly?

all
theres a ton of threads on here already regarding this. youd do yourself a favor by finding them and reading them. Whatever, you think of his theory of the killer (not much IMHO), he has a legitimate claim to the ID of Mary Kelly-his relative.

And no he didn't use that photo. read up before anyone criticizes too harshly.
