I also have a bit of a query with regards to Kelly's murder. I wonder if Eddowes was in fact JTR's "ultimate offence", that's the one he really satisfied his urges, his adrenaline already pumping from Stride* , the increased risk of being caught and JTR carries out some pretty comprehensive mutilations, including of course the face. When JTR murders Kelly, he has of course the time to fulfil his desires fully...however, what if Kelly's murder was not quite living up to the satisfaction he got from Eddowes, so he escalates, he mutilates the face reminiscent of Eddowes to recreate the scene for himself, he makes bizarre mutilations perhaps not as tidy as seen previously and escalates and escalates, but the relative safety of the indoors scene does not provide him with the same satisfaction as the outdoor slayings, as the risk of capture is much lower. What I am getting it in a very waffle way, is, Was Kelly assaulted so extensively as JTR tried to equal the satisfaction from Eddowes and was unable to do so? If so, do you think this would make whether JTR knew Eddowes more important than whether he knew MJK?



*(Im going to assume that Stride is a victim, I am not convinced, I feel some aspects of her injuries/murder may have strongly proven her to be a JTR victim that may not have been publicised)

Hi kerrypn,

No, I don't think a likely candidate for GH has turned up yet. As to indication of age, I have heard that Bob Hinton may have come across a reference to GH having been 28 at the time; but I'm afraid that I don't know what the source of this information was.

If I remember correctly, Bob's research partner found a newspaper reference to his age, but then lost it and couldn't find it again.

Hi.
We appear to have forgotten the obvious candidate.
Who else has come forward and declared himself to be George Hutchinson,since the murders happened.then George William Topping Hutchinson?
Answer Nobody...
Who else made a comment that he was paid One hundred shillings, but topping.?
The reference to a payment was only printed in a rare sheet from 1888, that was only discovered , in relatively recent years...certainly after the book 'The Ripper and the Royals was published in 1992, that made reference to it..
Only the real Hutchinson would know about a payment. because he received it.
The Hutchinson family, including Topping's brother, knew of the account for many years..but we on Casebook. are still running around like headless chickens, looking for the witness, when we already know who he was..
The word ' Blinkers'' springs to mind...all roads lead to suspicion , and focuses entirely on mistrust, and the truth is pushed aside,,
Regards Richard.

That's only about 6 weeks pay though, so not really that much, like a reward of 5,000 today.

But you get a reward for finding him, not for looking for him.

Actually Jeff I know here sometimes rewards will be given just for helping the police.

But yes 100 quid dos seem a bit steep.

Ithink that there were a few rewards offered or suggested in JtR and all up they were about 1,000l for information leading to arrest

Topping may have meant the value in the day's currency which was, if I remember, 1972-ish when he spoke of it.
