It's a bit of a mystery to me Edward


Cleary certainly seemed like he didn't want anyone to trace the man he said told him about the murder, if the man even existed


Very strange


Another interesting aside is that the John Cleary tale greatly encouraged Lyttleton Stewart Forbes Winslow to believe in his lodger + accomplice theory, the accomplice being "Dodger"

Forbes Winslow put on a public conference at which Callaghan, the lodger's landlord, and a female thought reader attended

A letter supposedly written by Dodger was received on 23rd Sept, the same day Swanson visited Forbes Winslow, who backtracked on most if not all his claims about the lodger suspect and whether he had previously approached Scotland Yard with any evidence

Default The shoeblack

After reading the following clip, I'm incline to believe the sack story was caused by the fact the police borrowed Michael Keating's shoeblack sack most likely to cover the body or place it inside to convey to the mortuary.

Good thinking, Jerry. That makes sense. It's rather humourous the fellow was too drunk to have noticed a body if there was one. Good thing he didn't try to snuggle up.
