    Pearly Poll mentioned soldiers in connection with Tabram, Murder Mags thinks it was a sailor (Poll could have change her mind again I suppose!)
    Ah, yes. I go with German Moggy again then.

    I was thinking afterwards- Pearly Poll did also have the nickname 'Mog' according to Lloyd's, so it depends on who Marshall viewed as he first victim I guess?

    I only just noticed that Grainger's crime is mentioned in this excerpt (obviously Mag hadn't heard JTR had drowned or was in an asylum!) but Mag rules him out as the Ripper.

    This is the first time I have read about a "cowardly constable" who allegedly witnessed a murder in a room off a small courtyard, presumably meaning the Kelly murder. A man who stood in the court outside the room while the crime was being committed but was "too badly frightened to interfere with its commission. . . ." But perhaps the 1895 date of this news story makes the allegation questionable.

    Hi Chris,
    Monty did put a possible name to the constable. I think it was mentioned again in the recent Leather Apron thread.

    I agree with Tom and Debs.

    ' the first woman killed was her mate ', I think this is a reference to Nichols.

    Good one, Debs. Yes, I think German is now a much better candidate than either Hames or Connelly.

    Yours truly,

    Or Margaret German aka German Moggy, who may also be Emily Holland.

    Stan;
    Whoever it is, is claiming to have lived in all of the residences that the WM victims lived...and for one month.

    I think it might be Pearly Poll.

    So could "Murder Mag" have been Margaret Hames?
