The killer was used to the typical lighting conditions of late 19th century London at night. This doesn't seem particularly strange to me.

Sam

Well he did just that, he omitted any reference to the organs being removed, he is even quoted in the Star as stating it would have only taken 3 minutes. Which for the killer to have done all that he is alleged to have done is impossible.

These reports that relate to timings etc are all over the place and totally unsafe to rely on with any accuracy.

Not if they're included in the injuries to which he did refer. He was unlikely only to offer his opinion on the external wounds without also including the most important injuries of all, namely the removal of the organs.

Not beyond the bounds of possibility. I'd put it at a comfortable 4-5 minutes, but I don't think Sequeira was too wide of the mark; he might even have been right.

Indeed. I used to struggle reading by the light of those energy-saving lightbulbs, but I've adjusted to them over time.

Default How could he see the things he was taking out of their pockets?

A macabre discovery awaited them near the palings and close to where the feet of the dead woman had rested. It comprised a small piece of coarse muslin, a small-tooth comb and a pocket comb in a paper case. These articles appeared to have been the contents of the dead woman’s pocket and Dr Phillips did not think that they had been casually cast to the ground. ‘They had apparently been placed there in order,’ he would tell the inquest, ‘that is to say, arranged there.’ Near the head position was a portion of an envelope containing two pills. The back of the envelope bore a seal and the words ‘Sussex Regiment’ embossed in blue. On the other side was a letter ‘M’ in handwriting and, lower down, ‘Sp’ as if someone had written ‘Spitalfields.’ The rest of the envelope was torn away. It bore no postage stamp but there was a postmark in red: ‘London, Aug. 23, 1888.’

He even arranged stuff on the ground as he rooted through her pockets.

The whole light issue is a mystery. What is the best explanation put forward for this fiend with night vision and a healthy diet of carrots for vitamin A?
Perhaps "we" seek a pathologist who was sufficiently skilled that he could operate by touch alone.

Hmm ..... first two murders were near the London Hospital,probably on his way home along "Hanbury Street" past Dr Phillips residence.

Probably carrying chalk at the start of the term.

Four of the CV5 within his expertise.

Explains the cashous and lack of "post mortem" due to a Stride's genetic disease.

The attempt at Chapman's head removal.

Too much to list ..... again.

"He even arranged stuff on the ground as he rooted through her pockets."

... by the light of dawn.

Reminds me of a long past Aussie entertainer renowned for being up at the crack of Dawn.

There's one category of person for whom the amount of light would be irrelevant - a blind man.
