Default Your Beliefs ( Poll )

Which of these Case related items do you believe to be inventions of someone other than the Whitechapel Murderer or simply untrue ?

Multiple answers, if you need to.

I voted none of them though there are some interesting points to ponder about grapes in Dutfield's Yard. I think it's really possible there was a grape stalk there, but so what? Liz also had a new handkerchief said to be stained with fruit juice, possibly grape. Ultimately SHE had not consumed grapes so that weakens the already weak story about the fellow asking the woman what color of grapes SHE preferred. I have no idea what to make of any of this.

I put a tic by Mrs. Max and Lusk just for the heck of it. They're at least the closest to being real in my view.

I voted the GSG because it was so consistent with what else happened that night. And because the Leather Apron fiasco had put a block on the sinister Jew theory and allowed the slaughterman theory to re-emerge. A challenge to that was required. (IMHO)

Oops, I didn't know it was multiple choice. I clicked Some or at least one, but would also have checked GSG had I paid attention. I'm 50/50 on Lusk letter.

Yours truly,

If I click a box, does that mean that A/ I believe this box to be something done by somebody else than the killer? Or does it mean that B/ I believe it to be made by the killer? It seems Howard is encouraging method A and that people are voting according to method B?

Yes, I certainy voted the rong way round. I obviously didn't read How's initial post.

I voted "None of them" -- I feel that all of these items are either bogus or distractions in the case.

You are right and I totally messed up. I have had a little trouble with this site and some others. All I had to begin with was the poll and not Howard's instructions.

I don't believe the Whitechapel murderer did any of these things though there is a possibility he COULD have had something to do with grapes in Dutfield's yard.

Thanks, Anna. Glad you agree that all of these things distract attention from the killer rather than help us to solve the case!
