Thanks to Gareth for a brilliant report on the Cardiff Job which left me chuckling throughout.

My navigational skills are now world renowned!

Also I'm glad I'm inspiring articles elsewhere in this edition - was it Adam who braved Jack's razor?

Hello Nemo

To clarify, although, yes, Jeff Mudgett's book Bloodlines is indeed a fictional book about his great-great-grandfather, H. H. Holmes aka Herman Webster Mudgett, he does genuinely believe that his forebear was in London at the time of the crimes and did carry out the murders in the East End.

Jeff argues that there is a gap in time during which Holmes's movements are not certain and that could have allowed for him to have been in England. That is, although some say that Holmes was in Chicago while his "Murder Mansion" was being built, Jeff's argument is that Holmes could have left orders with the builders while he took a trip abroad.

Maybe... We might recall the question of whether, similarly, Deeming was in Lancashire while the renovations to Dinham Villa, Rainhill were carried out, or if he was elsewhere and had just left instructions on what work should be done.

While Bloodlines is fiction, it lays out Jeff's theory of how Holmes could have done the murders, and floats the balloon of his ancestor's candidacy as the murderer while he continues to gather possible proof of the veracity of his theory such as the handwriting matches he claims have been found between "Ripper" letters and Holmes's correspondence.

All the best

Chris

Thanks for the explanation Chris

I'm about halfway through Bloodstains so I'll comment further on that when I've finished it

Although Holmes is up there with the worst of them, there's no way I can see him carrying out the Ripper crimes on the street with very limited time. He had more sense and control than that

Jeff should have gone for the Torso murderer, who may still have written some Ripper letters

I can't see it at all really

I'll start a thread and see what others think

Bump UP

Very nice report by Gareth Williams on the Cardiff Job which appears to have been a success in all ways concerned.
Good to have seen Jon Rees actually doing work ( in the photos).


Another fine article by Jon Simons. I like the format Jon uses to tell a story.


Anyone else have some input on issue 121 ?
