Interesting article mentioning Krafft-Ebing and the "unusual intellectual characteristics" of the Ripper,which the reporter matter of factly states was identified.
I guess we can all go home now,eh ?

Frank was lynched shortly after this. Some think Conley actually did it, based on only one person's say-so, but I'm not so sure. The court was enthralled by Conley who, although poorly educated, seemed some sort of natural genius. Whites were amazed that a "Negro" could be so well spoken even though he used the lower class dialect. I expect he played this up a bit in order to, wisely, not show them up too much. Either could have been charged but apparently they liked a northern Jew even less than a local black. I say the above not as a knock on white Southerners who were probably about the same mix of good and bad as any other group.
This is my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.
