Default Lets get Lechmere off the hook!

A thread in which I would like for people to state what speaks against Lechmere as being the Whitechapel killer.

Here is the perfect opportunity to overwhelm me with good hard evidence that he could not have dun it, inklings why he would be innocent, cleverly thought-out scenarios that must exclude Charles the carman, convictions, expertise, experience - anything that tells us why Charles Allen Lechmere could or would not have been the Ripper.

Once it begins dropping in, I aim to process and list it, and at some stage, I will post the outcome.

Itīs a one-in-a-lifetime chance - who would have thought that I would present a thread by such a mouthwatering name...? Go for it and go hard!

Good luck and all the best,
Fisherman

Hey Fish

Great - but hardly a 'once in a lifetime opportunity' is it??

Didn't we do all this a couple of years ago on your 'Clothes-Puller' thread? And then again [and again] on several subsequent threads?

Still, I wish you [and the lovely Edward of course] luck with it. Just remember, at the end of the day your theory is well and truly out there, for better or for worse - and nobody can take that away from you.

Thanks - but will you not offer any suggestions about things that would go to help clear Lechmere? Thatīs what this thread is about.

The best,
Fisherman

PS. It IS a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in the sense that I will not provide any more links aiming to exonerate Lechmere!

Well, Ok Fish - if you like. It'll only be what I said to begin with though - since nothing new has arisen for my consideration since then, the situation regarding Crossmere remains the same.

As somebody famous once said, I'll be back.

To get Lechmere of the hook is to suggest he is on it?
He is not. Nowhere near.

We are asked to provide hard evidence why he didn't do it?
The Lechmere brigade can't even provide a little bit of evidence let alone hard evidence to prove he did it.

Hi Fish

It doesn't seem likely that he could commit the atrocities to Mary Kelly and live a 'full life' till the age of 71.

1)He found the body on a street, on his way to work. Right time, right route.
2)He is first seen in the middle of the road, which agrees with Paul`s statement.
3) He doesn`t skulk away in the shadows when Paul appears but stays and asks for assistance.
4)He places his hand on Paul when Paul arrives at the scene.
5)Mrs Lechmere would be alarmed at Cross arriving home at 2.30am on the morning of the double event.
6) No evidence against him
7) No police record against him

Hi Fishypoo,

I saw your channel 5 prog the other night, and I must say you did the best job yet of getting the poor bugger off the hook. More odour toilette than Chanel 5.

Well done!

Love,

Caz

He means the hook he and A.N. Other is dangling. But he's off that one anyway.
