    Hi all,
    Found this amongst my notes:

    According to Tom Cullen,in 'The Crimes and Times of Jack the Ripper', there was a Jew called Jacobs, who worked in a slaughterhouse and who was also known as Leather Apron. (Pg 66)

    He went mad eventually and committed suicide, from the unwanted attention.

    Thanks ! I did forget about the recent thread you started, Chris...and didn't know about Leeson's Jacobs, CG.

    "After the murder of Frances Coles, a rumour began to circulate that the killer was a butcher, who wore a leather apron. Jacobs a slaughterhouse butcher wore such an apron so came under suspicion from angry street mobs, and had to be rescued on several occasions by the police. There is no evidence to connect Jacobs with the Whitechapel murders."

    Eddleston's Encyclopedia also discusses Jacobs.
    Thanks Chris - different Jacobs!

    A scare similar to the 'Leather Apron' scare of September, 1888, begins anew with a man named Jacobs, believed by the public to be the killer soon after the Frances Coles murder.

    Do you remember this ?

    Hi How
    This was mentioned recently - Jacobs was the young Jewish man with the plate on his way to get his supper from Dorset Street. But where the idea emerged that he was a suspect I don't know

    Yeah...I noticed they left out other top suspects like Vincent Van Gogh and Paganini, Mike.

    I note that the whole Stephenson saga is missing from the timeline, as is the birth of How.
