Yep. And I think three of those you mention make good suspects, but being a letter writer does not a ripper make when we know as a fact that letters were received from 100s, if not 1000s, of different people.

It boils down to this.

Proof of being the writer of a letter does not prove the same person being a killer.
If Kosminski, Druitt and Co wrote one of the letters.. it would mean..
They wrote a letter. Thats all.

As long as there is no tangible link to the act of murder.. Which there isn't.. then this isnt even circumstantial evidence.

The craving to find "guilt" must be tempered methinks.


Just my opinion.

Not sure now..but I don't think it was that one. I could be wrong.

Exactly so. Well said. Even if Sickert wrote a "Ripper" letter it only shows he had a fascination with the case. But then so did countless others. And not surprisingly -- it was the most famous case of the day, and has been so down to our day and presumably onward. If you read the press reports that Howard Brown posts at JtR Forums you will soon find that countless men thought to frighten a partner or a stranger by announcing they were the Ripper or that they would "ripper" the victim. Again, that's hardly proof of a link to the Whitechapel murders.

Doesn't it largely depend on which letter?
