Hi Dd
I wouldn’t say improbable. Among the names listed in the suspects forum I would categorize them as impossible-Albert victor, ostrog, improbable-Francis Thompson, donston viable-tumblty, druitt, Koz and very viable- hutch,bury, Chapman.

Lech was there, had the opportunity, and there are some red flags with his statement. I would put him in the viable category.

My italics.


Agree (sort of). This is true if he was lying - and is true also of Schwartz, Hutchinson (as you say), Cadosch and perhaps others in the witness category. If you were a witness then you were there and so had the opportunity. Fish, I'm sure would say that I put too much faith in Lechmere's account, while I would suggest that Mizen might have had his own reasons for dissembling. I guess that's the essence of Ripperology.

A simple statement but also a damn good one. Gets right to the point doesn't it?

Hey Abby,

I'm fine with your groupings, but even the best suspect whoever it is, is at best improbable in my opinion.

If you are an improbable, you are in my Premier League.

Hi dd
Yes yes of course. Totally agree. Those groupings are of course rated in relation to each other.

As I’ve often said....all the suspects are weak. Some are just less weak than others.

I'm all for re-grouping suspects and updating information. Not before time might I add!
