  • Did You Know???

    Trivia and tidbits of information that get lost in the myriad of Ripper discussion and although maybe not so "informative", worth a glance..

    For example...

    DID YOU KNOW ? My dad grew up in the same neighborhood and knew Laird Cregar, the actor who played in THE LODGER [ 1944 ] ?

    Frank Cater

    The body was removed as soon as possible to the mortuary in
    Golden -lane, where it was examined in the presence of Dr. Brown and Dr.
    Sequeira. Dr. Phillips, of Spital -square, the surgeon of the H Division
    of Metropolitan Police, arrived shortly afterwards, and assisted in the
    preliminary
    examination of the body. The woman is described as being about 40 years
    of age
    and 5ft. in height. She has hazel eyes - the right one having been
    apparently
    smashed in, and the left one being also injured - and dark auburn hair.
    She wore
    a black cloth jacket, with imitation fur collar and three large metal
    buttons.
    Her dress is of dark green print, the pattern consisting of Michaelmas
    daisies
    and golden lilies. She also wore a thin white vest, a drab linsey skirt,
    and a
    very old dark green alpaca petticoat, white chemise, and brown ribbed
    stockings,
    mended at the feet with white material. Her bonnet was black straw,
    trimmed with
    black beads and green and black velvet. She wore a pair of men's
    laced -boots;
    and a piece of old white coarse apron and a piece of riband were tied
    loosely
    around the neck. There were also found upon her a piece of string, a
    common
    white handkerchief with a red border, a match box with cotton in it, a
    white
    linen pocket containing a white bone handle table knife, very blunt
    (with no
    blood on it), two short clay pipes, a red cigarette case with white
    metal
    fittings, a printed handbill with the name "Frank Cater, 405,
    Bethnal -green -road,"
    upon it, a check pocket containing five pieces of
    soap, a
    small tin box containing tea and sugar, a portion of a pair of
    spectacles, a
    three -cornered check handkerchief, and a large white linen pocket
    containing a
    small comb, a red mitten, and a ball of worsted.
    In the afternoon a post -mortem examination of the body was made by Dr.
    Brown,
    assisted by Dr. Sequeira, Dr. Phillips, and Dr. M'Kellar (the chief
    surgeon of
    the Metropolitan Police). Dr. Yarrow (H Division Metropolitan Police)
    and Dr.
    Sedgwick Saunders were also present at the examination. It may be stated
    that up
    to a late hour last night the body had not been identified.


    OKAY PEOPLE.....WHO IS FRANK CATER AND HAS ANYONE EVER RESEARCHED THIS MAN/NAME?

    This handbill was NOT mentioned at Eddowes Inquest....WHY ?

    Why was it in the Times but not the inquest...

    Any thoughts ?

      I did contact one of his relatives....I think his name was Dave Cater.
      That was back in 2004 or 2005.

        Could he have had some sort of business? hence the handbill. He might be found in a trade directory.

          Phil:
          I believe he was a grocer.
