- Arguably the most skillful mutilations. I am not one of those Casebook posters who hangs onto every word choice made by a doctor in 1888, but to the extent that doctors who examined the victims were impressed by the mutilations, they were most impressed by the Chapman mutilations.
- An attempt was apparently made to remove the head. I'm not 100% convinced of this, but people make the claim.

She is not the only victim to lose a uterus (Eddowes also)
She is not the only victim to have two throat cuts (Nichols also)

Dr Phillips commented that an uncommon instrument,like a post mortem knife,may have been used.
Um....who would want her head and used a post mortem knife?
Perhaps someone who walked home along Hanbury street during the week....right past Dr Phillips residence in Spital Square.
Someone he knew even.
