Question Lydia Hart : Pinchin Street Torso Victim ?

I remember reading somewhere, many years ago, that this victim had been tentatively identified as Lydia Hart...anybody else ever hear that? Sorry if this has been posted before - blame newbie enthusiasm!

I fixed it, Cicatrice...

Cicatrice;
The A To Z mentions that Hart was considered to be the PST.
Her identity was ( unless Debs knows better....) never discovered.

Lydia Hart was alive and well and in an Infirmary.

Hello Rob. Thanks.

I'll try to commit that one to memory.

(Still waiting for you and Debs to write a book on the torsos.)

Cheers.

Hi Cicatrice,
Interesting username. Are you interested in the torso cases? Elizabeth Jackson was identified by the trace of an old cicatrice on her wrist.

Hi all
In Cicatrice's defence, IIRC at least one recently published book still contained the information that the Pinchin St torso may have been Lydia Hart, despite that being proven wrong years back by SPE(?). I can't remember which book it was but I remember I was rather shocked to read it at the time, so it might even have been in a book by a well known author?

Just remembered, not meant as a name and shame, but it is in Neil Shelden's recent book 'Mary Jane Kelly and the Victims of Jack the Ripper 125th Anniversary' book that the Pinchin Street torso was perhaps Lydia Hart. So any newbie can be forgiven for repeating that.
