Tim - I think Paul probably did lie in his newspaper interview to 'big up' his own role and make himself seem more important and probably worth a few extra shillings of his version of events. But only for that purpose.
Well that makes complete sense. Maybe a few more did the same with their version of events. And ofcourse the paparazzi of the day will have fabricated things to sell a story, I guess.
Cheers Edward.

I fully agree that there was no positioning of the limbs "for effect", Tom. In fact, I don't think he needed to move their limbs very much at all - even Eddowes, whose legs were somewhat splayed, was found in a configuration not inconsistent with having been killed and lowered to the ground after a brief struggle.

Indeed not posed, Lynn, but for reasons of practicality, as suggested by Tom.

Hello Tom.

"Of course their limbs were positioned to some extent - Tabram, Nichols, Chapman, and Eddowes, at least, for access to their privates. But this was for a practical reason and not for sake of 'effect'."

Quite.

Cheers.

Hello Gareth. Thanks.

"I fully agree that there was no positioning of the limbs "for effect", Tom."

Splendid.

"In fact, I don't think he needed to move their limbs very much at all - even Eddowes, whose legs were somewhat splayed, was found in a configuration not inconsistent with having been killed and lowered to the ground after a brief struggle."

Absolutely.

Cheers.

A brief yet silent struggle?
And the legs needed to be pulled apart in order to access their privates? Really?
And the same killer ( if you excuse that Lynn) left Nichols' legs together?
And left Stride in an even more unarranged state.

Agreed, Ed - I don't think the killer was particularly interested in their privates as such. His focus seems to have been a tad higher up.

Hello Tom. Thanks.

Well, there was damage there, but the focus?

Cheers.
