At first, but then he changed his story/plea. Whilst I think it likely that Bury was responsible for Ellen's death, the confession in and of itself doesn't guarantee that he was. False confessions...

You've got enormous hands, Alan. I'm impressed!

Joking apart, that's the sort of artefact that will have many people, including myself, drooling with envy. Nice one :)

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" :)

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.
