    I don't know which victim or victims might be buried in this particular corner of that unnamed London cemetery but I assume that the victim(s) were women killed later than 1888, perhaps McKenzie or the Pinchin Street victim, each of which in the public imagination, possibly affected by the press coverage of the case, seems to have been considered to have fallen prey to the same man.

    We tend to be more discerning about which crimes we ascribe to the Ripper in the early 21st century, unless we happen to be a writer who, without sufficient proof, lumps all murders together and attributes them to the "man."

    Best regards

      In all probability, CG, this was a sketch of just one grave site which the Examiner turned into the final resting place of all the victims.

        Hi Howard

        I think you're correct in that assessment.

        Cheers

          Could possibly have been where Frances Coles was buried. That as far as I can make out was a corner plot. Elizabeth Stride, The Pinchin Street Torso and probably Alice McKenzie are all in the same graveyard.

            Coming on the heels of the Coles murder, you may be right, Rob.

            Thanks !

              It would be nice if the original photo survived, also why it was taken.
