Hi one and all!
Can I ask members to name who they think JTR was and why in just a few sentences as I am curious to see who's name crops up most these days
I'll start it off by saying that I change my suspect about every 6 months and every time I do I'm convinced that this time I have it right.At the moment,for me, it's George H,gawd know's who it will be this Christmas
Oh for a time machine to go back to 1888 and lurk about Whitechapel and see who was JTR
My summation is...someone never named as a suspect, though probably was interviewed at the time but flew under the police radar. Local man, knew the area, knew the women, crafty and sly. Probably died or was arrested for a none related crime soon after the murders. Went to his grave taking his secret with him.
ok ill give my ideas... (sneak preview for you david )
my thoughts are that a gang (as in group of locally-based criminals not a group of freemasons or the like, nor the common english organised gangs), probably former convicts, from eastern europe, who were settled in the area in one of the foreign-dominated areas (or possibly in different areas) were responsible for at least 3 of the killings, possibly stride as well.
my best guess as to who committed the dorset street murder at this point is fleming - the only name id even venture to put forward.
if mickey's a mouse, and pluto's a dog, whats goofy?
