Default Why No Murders In 1890??

So lets hear your theories about this one.... this is mostly for those who believe that Jack killed beyond the C5..... If, and I do state IF, Jack did kill beyond Mary Jane Kelly and continued to murder, why was there no murders that took place in 1890?? .....Or was there some murders or attacks in 1890 that went unnoticed that could have been overlooked? Were there any stabbings/knife attacks etc in 1890?? Or... could he have been away from London or been ill or even had a "rest" similar to BTK etc..?

Best regards

Adam

It's possible he took a break like Peter Sutcliffe did. He had a year where he did not kill.

There was the Phoebe Hogg murder in October of 1890 - a huge stretch of course.

Default Again Mmmmmmmmm


One things that has always interested me about this is the idea of the gaps. Yes Sutcliffe had gaps but his attacks were more spaced out anyway. Jack's were so close together that I wonder what would have caused such a large gap!!!

It is strange how there are no murders at all in Whitechapel when it was such a violent place in general. I was certain that there would be at least some sort of unsolved stabbing case. Very odd but not uncommon I suppose.

The whole 1890 gap is still a mystery to me. If Jack killed McKenzie and Coles, then there is a 19 month gap. Even if you believe that he killed the Pinchin Street victim, that is still a 17 month gap. Maybe he did suffer an illness for a certain length of time. Im surprised the press never attributed anything to the Ripper during this year.

If jack only did the C5 do you think it's possible he did them in a short period of time because he knew he didn't have a long period of time to commit the murders?
I mean that he might have known his days were numbered for some reason.

Your guess is as good as anyone else's. I think Jack did five then either died or was jailed or institionalised. If he went OS he'd have started again. I don't think Jack killed any other than those in the canon.

Default I've always thought...

timing was essential to JtR.

1890 wasn't the right time to kill for him. 1888 was perfect by his calender. July 1889 fit the bill. Apparently so did February 1891.

There were no murders in 1890 as Jack the Ripper didn't murder after 1889 and not in London after 1888.
