  • Element 7- First Transoceanic Cable Concerning A Murder Suspect ?

    I have to look further because we know Scotland Yard sent a TransAtlantic telegraphic communication to the New York City police concerning murder suspect James Pennock in November 1888....and the Yard also sent a message to the NYPD concerning Francis Tumblety......the question is which one was sent first.

    I lean towards Pennock...but one might have been sent regarding Tumblety prior to the date one was sent on Pennock. Another issue is this :

    If one was sent to the US concerning Tumblety which wasn't in regard to murder, then that one ought not to count.


    I'll have to come back to this....and in the meantime, if anyone wants to help sort this out, it would be appreciated.

    This is the problem with the suggestion, a good one I might add, by A.P. Wolf.
    It appears Scotland Yard's November communication in relation to Pennock or whatever the hell his real name was, occurred before the one sent in regard to Tumblety, also in November.

      This is an example of why nothing is easy in this Case... even if it isn't a direct part of the Case.

        New York City threw a party in 1861 when the first Transatlantic cable was laid!
