Smile Sniffing Up the Wrong Trouser Leg

I am completely new to JTR Forum and I would like to share with everyone on here, my theory about the 1888 murders in Whitechapel.
So far, I think everyone is "sniffing up the wrong trouser leg" to be honest and that very minute, yet VERY important details have been overlooked over the last century and a quarter.
As I have researched the murders, I have found some very remarkable things that have been completely over looked, either because they are considered to be unimportant, or because they simply haven't been seen.
My theory not only is unique, but also puts TWO people into the frame of suspects. When investigating a murder, it is vital to look at ALL the evidence, no matter how small and by doing this I believe that I may have unearthed something quite spectacular.

Hi Robinson

With due respect to you, at this point the number of theories that have been suggested as answers to the case is quite extensive. I would be surprised if your ideas have not been touched upon by some theorist in the past but I might be wrong. Why don't you try us out and we'll tell you whether your ideas are new or whether someone else has suggested them in the past?

Chris

Default My Theory

"When you have eliminated the impossible, all that remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth."
These lines were spoken by Conan Doyles Sherlock Holmes. When we read into them, we find that these words are completely logical. There can be no dispute as to what is being said here or in fact what the meaning of the words is.
Kenneth Williams (actor) said "Diaries are written, so one has a record of events and because there are certain events one wants to remember. There is also perhaps an element of the confession."
Not one single scientific experiment on the "Ripper Diary" has proved it to be a fake and so, in the words of Conan Doyle, and in all logic, the diary MUST be genuine.
Now, stay with me. Don't go blowing off steam about the diary being a fake etc, the facts speak for themselves. Afterall, all I am about to do here is prove beyond all reasonable doubt, that a certain person was JTR AND that he had an accomplice. As long as I can prove this, then there would be enough evidence, including the diary to make a conviction stick.
Still with me? Ok, watch this space.

Don't think so.

Hello Robinson. Thanks for posting that.

No, steam, but a usual procedure is not to prove something false, but to convince one it is true.

But, I assure you, I am ALL attention.

Cheers.
