He may have felt that he at long last had escaped from her influence, that´s what I am thinking.

If others say "psychobabble" or "bullshit", that does not change things at all. There is no proving what I suggest, but suggesting it is sound enough to my mind.
Very interesting

Hmmm....I wonder where I read that originally, Rocky. I don't remember it at all! I will have to re-investigate that.

If your saying that then why not blame the Ripper murders on Chapman? Because he's a proven murderer and better suspect than Lechmere albeit still a crap suspect.

Hi John
Yes. For Chapman to be a suspect an even more drastic change in MO between him and the ripper. Actually a more drastic change than the ripper and torsoman.

Compared to bury, Chapman’s change in MO is huge, which is why I got bury ahead of Chapman, and I don’t care what SUgden says. ; )

>>Serial killers change their MO all the time. It’s actually quite common, and well known.<<

I agree, they can often be very erratic but, how many serial killers have two very distinct different m.o's.

(Genuine question, I have no idea.)

But still within comfortable walking distance. Not even the distance my kids live away from me and I still see them on a weekly basis. Isn't there still a family connection via the Cats Meat business?

Also, he, possibly, rented a house owned by his in-laws. So, a very strong family connection there. It would be better theory if he had moved to Liverpool or somewhere.

And, if we are to believe CAL killed Mrs Stride, and Anon. torso, obviously he still hung around the area.

Assuming he didn't cut up bodies in front of his mother, wife and children, he would have needed a separate place to do it, that would not necessarily need to change with the family home. After all, he did move away to James Street before Doveton.

Did he ever live in Clapham, Wandsworth or Battersea?

Did the killer kill where he lived though? or was it where he worked? even somewhere abandoned?
