Default Martin Fido discovery 2018

"At the 130th Anniversary Conference in London this September, Martin will present his research about how the discovery of the details behind the Met’s Mary Jane Kelly photo is the single most important discovery in Ripperology over the last 20 years.

It also confirms his speculation thirty years ago that despite a huge fictional content and the impossibility of tracing the alleged source, Inspector H of Thames Valley, the old French book “Jacques l’Eventreur” (subsequently translated by Molly Whittington-Egan) contains some rare accurate information about the early days of the police investigation with important implications for our view of Sgt Thick and John Pizer"

What was the big revelation and why is no one talking about it on ANY of the boards??

Jacques l'Eventreur is "Jack the Ripper" in French

I suspect it’s because not many here attended the conference, ore Newbies, and therefore are unaware of Martin’s talk.

Thick and McCarthy of Dorset St., had an interaction over a bust-up involving a gang which used Thick to give them a good character reference so they avoided jail and paid fines instead. Maybe it is more on that?

I left this board years ago after getting ripped apart on it many times, nice to see the same bull going on with snobbishness STILL going on even when one of the leading ripperologists speaks about something important, the idiots on here decide again not to notice something important due to rivalries on conventions and total ignorance. nothing has changed.

I haven't a clue what Martin Fido has found out, but I'd be interested to know.

Well, I've asked him and will pass along whatever he has to say.
