I was on Skype with Neil Bell and Ally Ryder last night and we were sharing some memories about Paul. Top bloke and still very much missed.

So sad to realise that Paul has gone from us for all of two years and that he was only age 50 when he passed away. Much too young. As tribute I am going to quote an email of mine posted just after his passing and that contains a quote from an email from him that gives a flavor of his ideas about Ripperology. I know there are hopefully plans to publish some of his writings and we look forward to such posthumous work from him.

I know that as Howard noted, Paul had a specific interest in researching William Grant Grainger and, as I recall, Thomas Hayne Cutbush as suspects, as well as in studying the theories of controversial alienist and theorist Forbes Winslow.

The email of Paul's, which I trust that Paul if he were alive and his wife Jasmaine would not mind me sharing, touches on other matters. Here it is in part --

We know how vague untruths become statements of fact in this case. . . .

I think Kosminski's a very good suspect, partly because his mental state might indeed have resulted in successful blitz type attacks

I'd say that committing the Ripper crimes in 1888 at the age 22 while relatively coherent, sane and semi-controlled, though volatile, might have itself produced symptoms of madness and paranoid schizophrenia at the age 25, but I'll look into it further

Sorry for waffling on

Thanks again
