Default scare

Hello Kensei. The features you pick out could also be used to scare someone it seems.

And now, apply cui bono for a fresh possibility.

Cheers.

Jack was commonly used to describe a stranger, someone Unknown. Yes, most of the letters are fake, the From Hell letter sent to Lusk may or may not be from the killer, as for the kidney part that came with it, unsure if it belongs to Eddowes, but as i understand it, if memory serves alright for me, it came from a female around Eddowes age group and she was suffering it seems from what is known as ' Bright's disease '.

Hi Shelley, that was reported as being the finding of Dr. Openshaw who examined the kidney, but he later denied saying it. However I can't help but wonder if he retracted the statement out of worry when he received a Ripper letter himself shortly thereafter.
