My wife and I are very shocked and saddened by this news today. Chris' kind voice filled our house on many a weekend. He was a true friend.

Rest in peace, Chris.

Taking the link that JMenges just posted elsewhere....this will take you to a program on Rippercast featuring Chris.
Hard to believe it was slightly over 5 years ago since the program first broadcast

Hello Adam. Thanks for sharing.

Quite shocking. Debs and I were discussing his book just the other day. I had finished it for about the third time.

Sad indeed.

Cheers.

Another great loss to Ripperology. He will be missed, my thoughts are with him and his family.

Oh, no. A massive loss to the field. Rest in peace, Chris, and a thousand thanks for all you've contributed over the years.

There are many persons who have varied interest in any genre or field. There are few who are pathfinders... those who research to expand knowledge and perception as a whole, rather than advance a particular agenda. Chris Scott was a pathfinder- that rare individual who instinctively knows where to point the light for the illumination of all... a light that will continue to shine long after its bearer has departed.

Godspeed, Chris.

I've been sitting here reading these tributes with unseeing eyes. He was the best. A superb researcher. Generous. Tireless. No ego to him at all. Irreplaceable.
