No woman could have done what was done to Kelly, and then left without tidying the place up.

Dated January 15, 2009 not 2006, Howard.

"The chief suspects, who included a barrister, a Polish boot-maker and a Russian confidence trickster, were all men. But Frederick Abberline, the detective who led the investigation, thought it possible the killer was a woman. This was because the fifth victim, Mary Kelly, was 'seen' by witnesses hours after she was killed. Abberline thought this was the murderer running away, in Kelly's clothes."

Where did they get that idea from, that ". . . Frederick Abberline, the detective who led the investigation, thought it possible the killer was a woman" ???

Are they confusing Abberline with Conan Doyle's theory about the killer possibly having been a man disguised in woman's clothing?

Was Mary Pearcey a genuine suspect?
If she was JTR, I'll eat my hat!

Mwah-hah-hah..put that in the category of "I wish I'd said that."

But seriously, folks, between this and the Abberline-as-suspect theory in the news, it appears I got back from vacation just in time for the silliest week in Ripperology ever!

Speaking earnestly I think it could of been a woman and what a woman she was too to have done that.

Geo's theories on why a Woman would of done such horrible deeds.

1- was infected with a veneral disase by Prostitute via husband or lover.

2 -Crazed bible thumber with an axe to grind.

3-Angry Prostitute with some real issues or daughter of prostitute, who hated Prostitutes and her mother because of abused childhood.

4-Woman's Suffragette thinking along the lines of bringing public attention to the horrible conditions of Whitechapel, who also had a massive hatred of Prostitutes.

Okay, I know that last one was weak. but its remotely possible. Really all of them are hokey and a bit Hollywood screen writer's fool's scrap but still are legitimate motives.

I think it could of been a woman and that more women suspects should be considered. Just look at Lizzie Borden, Women were capable of violent and grizzly murder just like men. Just adding my layman's 2 cents worth.

It could have been all these. She could have changed her mind about why she was doing it with each new killing.

Possibly? She might of been off the wall nuts, yet able to maintain sanity long enough until she got run over by a beer cart or jumped off London Bridge..... Or been killed by one of her intended victims.

Some of those Prostitutes could be really tough and were probably packing protection. I would of been had I been in their shoes with a killer on the loose.

Hi George

Well, no weapons were found on the victims, so if they had protection, Jack must have stolen their weapons.

I think if it had been a prostitute killing these women, then she would have known about MJK and her formidable reputation as a fierce defender of her pitch. Young and powerful, she doesn't seem to me the sort of woman that another woman would care to tackle.
