I'd never thought of that, but it's an interesting idea. Not that Tolkien would have needed to mould Eirwen into Arwen necessarily, because there's a ready-made Welsh male name Arwyn which, by a...

In the month leading up to my mother's birth in 1945, there were spells of genuinely heavy snowfall. Inspired by this, my grandparents named my mother "Eirwen", which is Welsh for "Snow White" :)

Fair enough, Gary, so if I may be pedantic in return, I was referring to his direction of travel being the heart of Spitalfields, not specifically the site where he dropped the apron :)As I've said...

Why, for example, would he head for the heart of Spitalfields later? The more likely scenario is that he got shot of the incriminating apron as soon as possible after the murder.

Sorry if this...

Indeed, but the route of least contact surely wouldn't have been the one which led the killer into the "population-density central" that was Spitalfields? Imagine a circle centred on Mitre Square,...

I was referring specifically to the killer's direction of travel, Mike, for which the apron provides our only concrete clue. The graffito adds zero information in that regard.

The apron piece is sufficient to indicate the direction in which the Ripper fled after leaving Mitre Square. In that respect, the graffito adds nothing.

The apron alone does that, of course, so the GSG is surplus to requirements, whoever wrote it.

It's not out of an anatomy book, that's for sure. Whoever drew that skeleton evidently didn't know of the existence of the pelvis; instead we get a "sausage-string" of bones arranged in a rough oval....

Which might explain why the skull/crossbones "Ripper" letter refers to, and was posted in, Birmingham. If said letter was somehow connected with the Skeleton Army, of course.

If that's accurate, then it looks like the killer(s) dumped the body pretty quickly then scarpered down Backchurch Lane, probably from whence they came.
