Hello Dave,

Let the world without go as it may; let kingdoms rise and fall, so long as he has the wherewithal to pay his bills, he is, for the time being, the very monarch of all he surveys. The arm chair in his throne; the poker his sceptre, and the little parlour of some twelve feet square, his undisputed empire. "

Thanks Dave, that's really kind of you, genuinely. I was confused.. there are a lot of people writing about the torso's all of a sudden..where were they 5 years ago when I had to bore the arses off Rob, AP and Neil about all this!!
p.s. Mine and Rob's article will be in Rip, I noticed the other day that the Examiner are running something on Elizabeth Jackson in the next issue but that's nothing to do with me or Rob [unless Rob is moonlighting].

I wouldn't get too hung up on this as a definition Robert, I am almost sure it is a modern term, probably because no one thought to write a letter and invent a moniker, although the press did have a limp attempt at it. I forget what it was now though, Rob may recall it.

Sideways is okay, Corey, it's backwards that's the problem.
I mean,we should consider some of these bodies cast offs of medical experiments or even suicides?!...

True, but it often bears fruit.

Probably why not many people are interested in them as they are JTR. I wonder if more people would be interested in them if there was a more interesting name? Was the 'Embankment Killer' another one? rings a bell.

Gosh, freindship is so overrarted!
'Embankment Killer' is an APism I think...think.

Anyway, Pontius....your turn.

You've never bored me Debs.

This aspect of that period has been grossly ignored for such a long time. Infact you and Rob were there first who bought real light to it. I feel its an important topuc which should be addressed if only to bring an understanding to the situation throughout those years where women were being brutally murdered.

No, not bored at all. Captivated, as well as being educated.

For example, Rob and I have exchanged texts these past two nights (no, not those kind of texts) on Pennett, and Ive learnt a few things.

These 'non canonicals' hold as much interest as the series. Just that there isnt much reading one can do in mainstream works. Both you and Rob are helping to rectify that.

Tis important work you do, and benefits us all.

Monty

I agree! My only wish would be you put something in the examiner so we could have the relevant articles in one place. Since we all use casebook, the examiner seems like the choice to me. I am heavily in debt and cannot afford to play the jackass game of collecting written works scattered over hells half acre. Dave

How about "Dexter the Dissector"? Maybe not

Anyway, Jackson is an interesting unsolved case and if it wasn't JtR it doesn't really detract from that. The Encyclopedia of Unsolved Crimes lists Frances Coles as a murder separate from JtR and, if anything, that adds to the "stature" of the case I think.
