    Hej Da Mr P.!

    We were discussing this over on another thread and I can vaguely remember hearing this theory before, but from where I don't know or how seriously it was presented.
    "The Men who were not the Man who was not Jack the Ripper!"

      Here's the link to the other thread, Mr. Poster:

      http://www.jtrforums.com/showthread....ht=secret+life

      Personally I think it's ridiculous, the amount of people who have been seriously suspected over the years largely because of their writings, paintings, etc. Carroll, Sickert, Stephenson, Maybrick (I should have inverted commas over "their" writings for this one), this "Walter" bloke now, just to name a few....even Richard Mansfield has been a suspect because he played the part of Jekyll & Hyde!

      Cheers,
      Adam.

        The theory is pretty much a nonstarter and bottom line is that the publishing project is an excuse to republish a Victorian pornographic book masquerading as a legitimate enquiry into the Whitechapel murders. Note Paul Begg's reaction to the book in that thread.

          Just to clarify, edited versions of 'Walter' are cheaply available in both soft and hardcover (the full version is very long) and can even be read on the internet (http://www.freeinfosociety.com/media.php?id=2674), so I don't think the authors were looking for an excuse to republish it. What I did feel was that the authors unnecessarily quoted chunks of 'Walter', an example being when they observe that Mary Ann Nichols possessed a small piece of broken mirror and then subject the reader to pages of examples of ‘Walter’s’ enjoyment of mirrors. I'd hesitate to say that the theory that 'Walter' was Jack the Ripper isn't offered seriously, but I wouldn't be surprised if somebody simply saw the idea as marketable.

            Fine but I might point out members of the public would not be necessarily aware that "Walter" is cheaply or freely available with a bit of effort. So the repackaging of the Walter tale as a Ripper book could still have been profit-driven. Do I feel an editorial coming on?

              Hi Chris,
              You are phrasing my words far more clearly than I did. That's what I meant.

                Man, I can come up with better LVP erotic stuff than this "Walter"( On a side note, Tim Mosley's middle name is Walter) guy can.

                Check this wizardry out:


                "Montagu, the costermonger, eagerly groped the ripe avocados in his engorged basket as he gingerly ogled Miss Cass's lithe ankles, laciviously peeking through the full length skirt she wore...."

                I missed my calling.

                  Jack the Ripper's Secret Confession

                  My book Jack The Ripper's Secret Confession (Constable UK, Skyhorse USA) was published February 1. It puts forward Walter, the anonoymous author of privately printed sex diary My Secret Life as The Ripper. Below is a sum-up of points. The work is culmination research that began ten years ago with a documentary film I made a Walter and late Victorian pornography. My shocking truth is that Jack the Ripper was a paedophile pervert pornographer. Other parts of my book detail how the killings came about from a sea-change within the Whitechapel sex industry brought on by greatest shake-up in English sex law for 600 years - the raising of the age of consent from 13 to 16 in late 1885.


                  Jack The Ripper's Secret Confession

                  30 points matching Walter, author of "My Secret Life" is Jack the Ripper

                  A unique and violent fetish pattern marks London-prostitute obsessive Walter as serial sex criminal. A sex base in Whitechapel and his boasts of Ripper and Thames Torso victims as sex partners make him prime candidate as Jack the Ripper.

                  1) Walter uses “cheap whores” in East London during bouts of poverty. He hates himself for doing so.
                  2) Walter is a sexual sadist.
                  3) Walter is a blood fetishist. He describes causing bloodshed of 20 women and girls during sexual acts.
                  4) Walter uses knives for sex purposes, carrying blades to make peep holes.
                  5) Walter sexualised slit throats. In 1888 he likened female genitals to “the slit throat of a dog”.
                  6) Walter commits his first rape, of a servant, at 16.
                  7) Walter became a serial rapist of country girls in his early 20s.
                  8) At age 21, Walter rapes an unconscious women later found “half murdered” in East London.
                  9) In middle age, piercing female flesh – the hymen – becomes Walter’s obsession
                  10) Walter threatens prostitutes with weapons. He wields a poker to “smash” a dress lodger and her madam during a row.
                  11) Walter is fascinated by blade-wielding rape. On hearing of a rapist who subdued his victim by holding a razor to her throat, he acts out the scenario on a sex partner. When he learns another paramour had been threatened with murder by sword during a gang raped by soldiers, he obsessively seeks out details of the attack.
                  12) Walter has homicidal urges. He rapes he wife while imagining “murdering her” after running from the police following rough street sex,. Walter “determined to murder” the child Pol during her rape, and tells her he will kill her. After paying for buggery, Walter wants to kick the man he had sex with and swears to kill anyone who learns about it.
                  13) Walter knows Whitechapel. He had based himself at the Gunmaker’s Proofhouse in Commercial Road Aldgate for stalking women and voyeurism. This is within a four minute escape radius of all Whitechapel murder sites.
                  14) The Ripper was said to have medical knowledge. Walter bys medical books and repeatedly pretends to be a doctor. He studies female sex organs, sketching internal genitalia with a surgeon who had “dissected virgins”. He acts as a surgery assistant in live examination of two women.
                  15) Walter developed a fetish for having prostitutes directly after they had been serviced during street sex. His practice is to shadow women to places of assignation unseen.
                  16) Walter associated pursuing street prostitutes with bloodsports, wearing a hunting outfit to trawl for sex in Dundee. He describes being sexual aroused while out killing game.
                  17) Walter disguised his identity while pursuing prostitutes in Tower Hill, dressing as a sailor and in working man’s cap. Men wearing similar clothes were seen on the night of the murder of Stride and Eddowes.
                  18) Martha Tabram is killed in a George’s Yard stairwell. Walter describes stalking a short, “hook nosed” older prostitute, who he previously threatened “to smash”, to a secluded spot in order to frighten her.
                  19) Mary Ann Nichols was found with an unexplained bonnet. Walter details his tactics of giving bonnets as sexual inducements.
                  20) Mary Ann Nichols had a clean white handkerchief, and Liz Stride had two handkerchiefs. Walter would offer handkerchiefs as payment to destitute prostitutes
                  21) The Ripper used a scarf worn by Liz Stride to align the cutting of her throat. Walter used scarves as sexual presents, positioning them on women’s neck as a lever for sexual groping.
                  22) Annie Chapman carried pills at her death provided apparently by an unknown doctor. Walter’s pretended to be a doctor, and had a prostitute use pills to subdue the virgin Emma, who he wished to rape.
                  23) Ripper victim Mary Jane Kelly and Walter’s prostitute lover Mary Davis, share the same name. Mary Davies (or Davis) was Mary Jane Kelly’s married name, under which she was buried. Both Mary’s were Irish. Both lived in single, ground floor rooms where they serviced clients, entered by long corridors. Both rooms were in the East End. Both Mary’s paid rent to a married couple who lived in the same building. Both were behind in their rent, one 25 shillings, to other 29 shillings. Both were thought attractive enough to be able to have worked in the West End. Mary Davis refused to provide a child for sex to Walter. Walter then hears that she has “died”.
                  24) Mary Jane Kelly was found murdered some reports said the door appeared to be locked and the key missing. Walter describes his tactics as a key stealer, taking keys to keep raped victims locked in.

                  25) Walter links himself to a murdered women’s corpse found on the Thames in 1889, postulating she is Sarah Mavis, a prostitute who spurned him after extracting a large loan. He describes her identifying features as a star-shaped mark underneath her breast. The corpse found on the Thames had two ribs below the breast cut away, obliterating where Walter’s identifying mark would have been.
                  26) Walter suffered “defloration mania”, the virgin breaking sex craze of the 19th century. In 1886, psychiatrist Krafft-Ebing linked defloration mania to a specific type of female mutilation murders that involve stabbing at the lower abdomen and removal of body parts: the marks of the Ripper.
                  27) Walter feared being blackmailed by those who knew of his sex life. He had been subject to anonymous letters to his wife. He said he would kill a woman if his long term relationship was threatened.
                  28) Walter suffers from “brain whirls” - memory lapse - during rage and extreme sex. These are symptoms of homicidal epilepsy, noted at the time as possible driver for the Ripper’s murders.
                  29) Women out to expose the child sex trade in Whitechapel for targets for murder. A letter by Josephine Butler in 1885 says Rebecca Jarrett, a prostitute living in the Hanbury Street who had revealed the child sex trade, was pursued by “four brutal brothel keepers” out to kill her. This specific motive for terror murder of Whitechapel prostitutes, recorded shortly before the Ripper killings, is ignored. The Attorney General orders Rebecca Jarrett herself prosecuted for buying a child as part of a newspaper expose on the child sex trade.
                  30) Walter’s privately printed sex memoir My Secret Life is dated 1888, the year of the Ripper killings. He says it as a contribution to psychology for a sexual aberration he cannot understand. Walter speaks of 80 pages of diary entries - worse that the rapes, child abuse and sex crimes he includes - that are "consigned to the flames”.

                      Welcome to the forums, David.

                      So, let me get this clear: Although all but one of Jack the Ripper's victims were in their 40's, Walter must have been the man because he was a "paedophile pervert pornographer" ??

                      I'll just address a few of the points you listed as well.....

                      Point 6: Just to make it clear, none of the Ripper victims were actually raped by the killer.

                      Point 10: This was because the prostitute had earlier agreed to a price of 10 shillings, and then tried to milk 5 pounds out of Walter. He also called out to the police. It wasn't like he randomly decided to threaten somebody with a poker just for the sake of it....

                      Point 13: Only one of the murders was actually committed in Whitechapel. Two were in Spitalfields, one was in St. George's-In-The-East and one was in Aldgate.

                      Point 19: Mary Ann Nichols had this bonnet well before she met her killer. Before leaving her lodging house that night, she said "See what a jolly bonnet I've got now..."

                      Point 24: The key had been missing for some time. Unknown to everybody else, the way to get in was to simply reach through the window and release the latch from the inside.

                      That'll do for now.
                      Also, how do you explain the fact that multiple witnesses described a man aged between late 20's - mid 30's, when "Walter", by 1888, was nearing 70?

                      Cheers,
                      Adam.

                        Hi ho David M.

                        And fair play for coming around here. We are however a friendly bunch.

                        1) Walter uses “cheap whores” in East London during bouts of poverty. He hates himself for doing so.
                        Theres no evidence whatsoever that JtR "used" cheap whores or any other type of whore at all. NOr that had he done so that he hated himself in any way.

                        2) Walter is a sexual sadist.
                        Theres no evidence JtR was a sexual sadist at all.

                        3) Walter is a blood fetishist. He describes causing bloodshed of 20 women and girls during sexual acts.
                        Theres no evidence that JtR was havving sexual acts nor indeed that he was focussed on sexual organs in any way other than that they happened to be a few inches beolow pretty much th eonly part of the human body thats easy to cut up deeply with a knife.

                        4) Walter uses knives for sex purposes, carrying blades to make peep holes.
                        Making "peep holes" is a far cry from what JtR was getting up to!

                        5) Walter sexualised slit throats. In 1888 he likened female genitals to “the slit throat of a dog”.
                        If Walter was mad into cut throats then he is different to JtR who, by all the evidence, was cutting throats to facilitate the rest of his activities as opposed to it being the goal of his exercise - Walter on the other hand appears to be into slit throats. Quite different.

                        6) Walter commits his first rape, of a servant, at 16.
                        What has that to do with our non-sex having JtR?

                        7) Walter became a serial rapist of country girls in his early 20s.
                        Again...nothing to suggest JtR was a rapist at all.
                        8) At age 21, Walter rapes an unconscious women later found “half murdered” in East London.
                        Using a colloquialism like "half murdered" to associate with JtR is tenuous.

                        9) In middle age, piercing female flesh – the hymen – becomes Walter’s obsession
                        That may be so....but piercing a hymen is surely best done through the vaginal opening? IF Walter was Jack then he went from handy hymen piercing in the conventional manner to losing his way and tyrying to do it via the roundabout route of the intestines.

                        Plus....I doubt very much if the hymen was in any way or form intact in th ewomen our Jack was killing.

                        10) Walter threatens prostitutes with weapons. He wields a poker to “smash” a dress lodger and her madam during a row.
                        Lots of people were threatening prostitutes with all sorts down in the LVP:

                        11) Walter is fascinated by blade-wielding rape. On hearing of a rapist who subdued his victim by holding a razor to her throat, he acts out the scenario on a sex partner. When he learns another paramour had been threatened with murder by sword during a gang raped by soldiers, he obsessively seeks out details of the attack.
                        Thats fine and he is really an unpleasant man but JtR displays no sign of being a rapist in the normal sense or even the gang raping, knife weielding, razor threatening way.

                        12) Walter has homicidal urges. He rapes he wife while imagining “murdering her” after running from the police following rough street sex,.
                        Admittedly ... thats a bit odd but does not serve to draw similarities with JtR.


                        13) Walter knows Whitechapel. He had based himself at the Gunmaker’s Proofhouse in Commercial Road Aldgate for stalking women and voyeurism. This is within a four minute escape radius of all Whitechapel murder sites.
                        OK.
                        14) The Ripper was said to have medical knowledge. Walter bys medical books and repeatedly pretends to be a doctor. He studies female sex organs, sketching internal genitalia with a surgeon who had “dissected virgins”. He acts as a surgery assistant in live examination of two women.
                        First...there is arguably nothing to suggest that JtR had doctor knowledge. Second....JtR displayed no interest at all in female sexual organs. The pubic region was fairly unmolested in most of them and not focussed upon when it did occur.


                        15) Walter developed a fetish for having prostitutes directly after they had been serviced during street sex. His practice is to shadow women to places of assignation unseen.
                        Ther eis no evidence that JtR was after women who had recently done the business. Oddly enough his victims seem to have been those least likely to have been having hectic commercial evenings.

                        16) Walter associated pursuing street prostitutes with bloodsports, wearing a hunting outfit to trawl for sex in Dundee. He describes being sexual aroused while out killing game.
                        This has nothing to do with JtR.

                        17) Walter disguised his identity while pursuing prostitutes in Tower Hill, dressing as a sailor and in working man’s cap. Men wearing similar clothes were seen on the night of the murder of Stride and Eddowes.
                        I'm a big fan of sailors hats so I'll give you that one.

                        18) Martha Tabram is killed in a George’s Yard stairwell. Walter describes stalking a short, “hook nosed” older prostitute, who he previously threatened “to smash”, to a secluded spot in order to frighten her.
                        Tabram did not to th ebest of my knowledge have what one would call a hooked nose?

                        19) Mary Ann Nichols was found with an unexplained bonnet. Walter details his tactics of giving bonnets as sexual inducements.
                        Fair enough....but Nichols got her bonnet earlier on somewhere.Walter doesnt strike me as a man who would give his "sexual inducement" to someone with a promise of a hook up later on.

                        20) Mary Ann Nichols had a clean white handkerchief, and Liz Stride had two handkerchiefs. Walter would offer handkerchiefs as payment to destitute prostitutes
                        Fair enough but a woman having a hanky is not exactly definitive. Im actually surprised Astrakhan Man wasnt mentioned in this context.-

                        21) The Ripper used a scarf worn by Liz Stride to align the cutting of her throat. Walter used scarves as sexual presents, positioning them on women’s neck as a lever for sexual groping.
                        Who said JtR did that?
                        22) Annie Chapman carried pills at her death provided apparently by an unknown doctor. Walter’s pretended to be a doctor, and had a prostitute use pills to subdue the virgin Emma, who he wished to rape.
                        I thought Chapman had been in an infirmary or something and thats where she got her pills?

                        23) Ripper victim Mary Jane Kelly and Walter’s prostitute lover Mary Davis, share the same name. Mary Davies (or Davis) was Mary Jane Kelly’s married name, under which she was buried. Both Mary’s were Irish. Both lived in single, ground floor rooms where they serviced clients, entered by long corridors. Both rooms were in the East End. Both Mary’s paid rent to a married couple who lived in the same building. Both were behind in their rent, one 25 shillings, to other 29 shillings. Both were thought attractive enough to be able to have worked in the West End. Mary Davis refused to provide a child for sex to Walter. Walter then hears that she has “died”.

                        WE dont know MJKs name at all. MJK's room wasnt entered via a corridor? This is all a bit tenuous.

                        24) Mary Jane Kelly was found murdered some reports said the door appeared to be locked and the key missing. Walter describes his tactics as a key stealer, taking keys to keep raped victims locked in.
                        The key issue is fairly well explained by a number of authors.

                        25) Walter links himself to a murdered women’s corpse found on the Thames in 1889, postulating she is Sarah Mavis, a prostitute who spurned him after extracting a large loan. He describes her identifying features as a star-shaped mark underneath her breast. The corpse found on the Thames had two ribs below the breast cut away, obliterating where Walter’s identifying mark would have been.
                        That shows he may have been the Torso murderer...not the JTR killer.


                        26) Walter suffered “defloration mania”, the virgin breaking sex craze of the 19th century. In 1886, psychiatrist Krafft-Ebing linked defloration mania to a specific type of female mutilation murders that involve stabbing at the lower abdomen and removal of body parts: the marks of the Ripper.
                        A man suffering from defloration mania is hardly one to focus on almost menopausal prostitutes especially when targets more likely to be virginal were available. Why would a virgin destroying fixation be satisfied with old whores especially when we know that Walter was able to procure and deflower younger girls?

                        27) Walter feared being blackmailed by those who knew of his sex life. He had been subject to anonymous letters to his wife. He said he would kill a woman if his long term relationship was threatened.
                        I dont understand the ripper connection.

                        28) Walter suffers from “brain whirls” - memory lapse - during rage and extreme sex. These are symptoms of homicidal epilepsy, noted at the time as possible driver for the Ripper’s murders.
                        I cannot say I have ever heard of homicidal epilepsy and seeing as pretty much everything has been suggested at one time or another for JtRs driving force....that someone doesnt exhibit on eof that set at some point is more a cause for wonderment than Walter having brain twirls.


                        29) Women out to expose the child sex trade in Whitechapel for targets for murder. A letter by Josephine Butler in 1885 says Rebecca Jarrett, a prostitute living in the Hanbury Street who had revealed the child sex trade, was pursued by “four brutal brothel keepers” out to kill her. This specific motive for terror murder of Whitechapel prostitutes, recorded shortly before the Ripper killings, is ignored. The Attorney General orders Rebecca Jarrett herself prosecuted for buying a child as part of a newspaper expose on the child sex trade.
                        Im not sure this is ripper related.

                        30) Walter’s privately printed sex memoir My Secret Life is dated 1888, the year of the Ripper killings. He says it as a contribution to psychology for a sexual aberration he cannot understand. Walter speaks of 80 pages of diary entries - worse that the rapes, child abuse and sex crimes he includes - that are "consigned to the flames”.
                        Again there is no evidence of sexual anything in the Ripper killings.

                        I admire your list..its a lot better than many....but its mostly built around matching Walter to what one thinks or supposes JtR to have been.

                        Not to what he did.

                        Imagining we know what JtR was like or what drove him on (if anything) and using those imaginings or preconceptions (mostly unfounded and rarely evidenced) is surely an exercise in futility?

                          Also, there was a French bloke around a bit before Walter's time called the Marquis de Sade, who made Walter look like an angel. de Sade published all sorts of crude literature, got arrested no less than 7 times in 38 years, and spent his last days as a man in his 70's having a relationship with a 13 year old....look him up, there's too many details to go into....yet, despite all of this, he never turned to killing women like JTR did. And I see no reason why Walter would do so either.

                          Cheers,
                          Adam.

                            They are all interesting points. We've certainly seen weaker cases over the years.

                            Thanks for participating. I've ordered your book.

                            21) The Ripper used a scarf worn by Liz Stride to align the cutting of her throat. Walter used scarves as sexual presents, positioning them on women’s neck as a lever for sexual groping.
                            22) Annie Chapman carried pills at her death provided apparently by an unknown doctor. Walter’s pretended to be a doctor, and had a prostitute use pills to subdue the virgin Emma, who he wished to rape.

                              Hi David,

                              Thanks for coming along. Look forward to reading your book at some point.

                              Have to say I agree with a lot of what the other gents here say. Just to give my two cents worth to a few points:

                              2) Walter is a sexual sadist.
                              Since JTR killed his victims before inflicting mutilations on them it was unlikely he was a sadist.

                              6) Walter commits his first rape, of a servant, at 16.
                              7) Walter became a serial rapist of country girls in his early 20s.
                              8) At age 21, Walter rapes an unconscious women later found “half murdered” in East London.
                              None of this is evidence of a serial killer. "Half murdered" is a typically vague Victorian term, was she in a critical state of health or roughed up a bit?

                              9) In middle age, piercing female flesh – the hymen – becomes Walter’s obsession
                              So wouldn't he murder young street girls? Teenagers or such like? Middle aged hardened prostitutes would be unlikely to satiate this desire.

                              11) Walter is fascinated by blade-wielding rape. On hearing of a rapist who subdued his victim by holding a razor to her throat, he acts out the scenario on a sex partner. When he learns another paramour had been threatened with murder by sword during a gang raped by soldiers, he obsessively seeks out details of the attack.
                              12) Walter has homicidal urges. He rapes he wife while imagining “murdering her” after running from the police following rough street sex,. Walter “determined to murder” the child Pol during her rape, and tells her he will kill her. After paying for buggery, Walter wants to kick the man he had sex with and swears to kill anyone who learns about it.
                              Definetly not concrete evidence. A lot of men have weird and violent sexual fantasies, but don't go on to be serial killers. And a lot of serial killers held seemingly normal family lives, with their loved ones oblivious to their fantasies.

                              14) The Ripper was said to have medical knowledge. Walter bys medical books and repeatedly pretends to be a doctor. He studies female sex organs, sketching internal genitalia with a surgeon who had “dissected virgins”. He acts as a surgery assistant in live examination of two women.
                              Medical experts of the day couldn't agree on this.

                              23) Ripper victim Mary Jane Kelly and Walter’s prostitute lover Mary Davis, share the same name. Mary Davies (or Davis) was Mary Jane Kelly’s married name, under which she was buried. Both Mary’s were Irish. Both lived in single, ground floor rooms where they serviced clients, entered by long corridors. Both rooms were in the East End. Both Mary’s paid rent to a married couple who lived in the same building. Both were behind in their rent, one 25 shillings, to other 29 shillings. Both were thought attractive enough to be able to have worked in the West End. Mary Davis refused to provide a child for sex to Walter. Walter then hears that she has “died”.
                              Mary Kelly was buried under the name "Marie Jeannette Kelly" not her supposed married name. We don't even know if she ever had been married or if it was just a sob story she told to Barnett.
