  • Michael Hawley presented on Tumblety twice at RipperCon. For an hour on Friday afternoon with a follow-up presentation on Saturday afternoon. That's right -- we just couldn't get enough of the guy!

    The first 17 minutes of Mike's Friday presentation can now be found on Youtube at https://youtu.be/MAlPHxNB8Io. Check it out.

    The talks at RipperCon 2016 should be appearing before long on RipperCast as well. Watch out for the recordings to appear at http://www.casebook.org/podcast/.

    • Hi all

      Another photo from RipperCon courtesy of Robert Anderson.

      Dr. Charles Tumosa of the University of Baltimore (UB) chatting with Martin Fido. Dr. Tumosa is Director of UB's Forensic Studies Program. His chosen topic for his Saturday morning talk at RipperCon was "The Forensic Time Machine: Looking Backward."


      Charlie Tumosa worked at the Philadelphia Police Laboratory from 1971 to 1989 examining evidence in crimes of violence. He retired there as head of the Criminalistics Lab in 1989 and went to work at the Smithsonian Institution. At the Smithsonian's Silver Hill facility he set up an analytical laboratory. His position with the Smithsonian gradually morphed into a research position examining cultural materials and determining ways to preserve them before retiring to join UB.

      Incidentally, Dr. Tumosa said he would welcome hearing by email from Ripperologists who have questions about forensic science. His email address is [email protected].

      Best regards

      Chris

            • A few more photographs from the Sunday RipperCon bus tour when I took the party to Poe's grave at Fayette and Greene Streets and to his house on North Amity Street, at what was then the western limit of the city. In the last photograph, I am holding an award-winning article I wrote on "A Poe Tour of Baltimore" that was published in Maryland Magazine in Summer 1974. Also shown is the garret room where it is believed Poe wrote some of his works. All photographs by Robert Anderson.









              (Here I am pointing out errors in inscription to Baltimore War of 1812 hero
              Major General Samuel Smith's tomb, in the same cemetery. Clever pants!)

              • Bruce Goldfarb from the Maryland Medical Examiners Office discusses "Frances Glessner Lee and the Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death" on Friday at RipperCon. On the Sunday bus tour, the RipperCon tour party visited "Nutshell Studies" and also saw some autopsy suites and other items at the Medical Examiners Office at the University of Maryland Biopark. The "Nutshell Studies" are used today to instruct investigators on developing observation skills at crime scenes.

                  • I can't believe people on Twitter are not getting the answer to the trivia question I posed.

                    "What connects East London and Baltimore?"

                    People who were at RipperCon are not allowed to answer!

                          • I guess it's ravens. Baltimore Ravens; ravens at the Tower.

                            Mark

                              • Then here is the next trivia question. Who was the celebrity writer who was scheduled to appear at the September 2001 Jack the Ripper Conference in Bournemouth who ultimately was a no show? There will be a prize for the first to guess the answer to this question.
