Default This doesnīt bode well!

So after many thousands of posts it has now been decided that Charles Lechmere actually needs to have a suspect division of his own.

Looking at the company it puts him in, that does not bode well...

Abby Normal: well of course. if hes the ripper, then the rest are obviously not! ; )

True enough! I sometimes do the exercise to imagine Jacob Levy, George Hutchinson, Robert Mann, James Kelly, Aaron Kosminski or any of the other proponents scuttling of into the darkness, knife in hand, as Lechmere turned the corner up at Brady Street.
Since Lechmere himself is a suspect, I canīt help but to view these scenarios with two suspects in the same block at the same time as slightly farcical.


BTW fish, I think he deserves his own spot. : )

More so than any other suspect if you ask me... Thanks for the vote of confidence, Abby - you are a truly rare creature in being able to endorse Hutchonson AND Lechmere at the same time. Come to thinkl of it, in that way you deserve a spot of your own too!

If you ask me, which I know no one would but anyway, I think this is a well deserved and hard earned sub-board.

I would agree - if anyone could name a serial killer who stopped killing and lived on to a ripe old age as a family man.

Well done, Fish! You've worked your socks off for this.

Mind you, I can't understand the bitter rivalry between Lechmere and Hutchinson theorists. To Abby, both suspects appear viable and promising; to me, the arguments made in both cases seem equally implausible, while often sounding extremely similar.

Love,

Caz

There are likenesses, no doubt - I normally refer to Hutchinson as Lechmere light. But thatīs extremely light.

And sometimes only dark.

Ugh! Who says he stopped killing? All we know is that he stayed a free man and either pursued a (seemingly) commendable and honest lifestyle - or used it as a facade. Many serialists have done this exact thing.
