As posited by many Ripperologists today, the idea of more than one "Ripper" or killer on the streets of the East End is echoed in the following.

One other thing which you might have thought of yourself...
...if they never caught the killer of any of the dozen victims, how did they, meaning the police,press or blacks themselves....know it was a black Ripper in the first place ?

Just as with the adage that "no Englishman could commit these ( 1888) crimes..."....could the possibility of a Caucasian killer have been excluded for similar reasons ?

Likewise in 1888, great passion and an appeal to women to stay indoors ( I have yet to see any definite references to prosses...yet I'd wager some of the women were ) was found.

...and here's where the story ends.

This is the last article found in the Atlanta paper on this skein of murders.

No culprit convicted for the skein or the majority of murders, despite rewards, patrols, heightened police presence,appeals to women to stay off the streets, and two promising suspects released ( Think Ludwig and Pizer )....

Tim:

All kidding aside, don't you see the similarities between the WM and this series in..I suppose you would call it...the structure of an unsolved skein of murders ?

1. After a few murders, people assail the police for not finding the killer.
2. The press gives the killer a name.
3. The locals offer rewards and offer to patrol the streets
4. Women of the evening are practically begged to get indoors
5. Copycats or those who were resting just under the dust are brought out ( the woman who dressed up like a man in the Atlanta case)
6. Suspects are mentioned and considered promising....but then released.
I have found a few articles where negroes lynched negroes ( which you'll never hear about in today's managed educational system) and I was surprised that no attempts to breach the jails to lynch either Huff or Henderson were made by negroes themselves.
...and so on and so forth.

See if you can reply sometime this year. I have a life to live and can't wait around for months for a response from you... you potatohead.

For some reason, I cannot locate the source at the moment for this commentary on the Atlanta murders...but I will.

Neems:

Thanks for those interesting bits.
A White man would have stood out like a sore thumb in those neighborhoods..

It struck me while looking into the papers that when this guy Brown was nabbed and apparently confessed to that one murder...that the police might have been happy to have one solid suspect after all the hassle they went through trying to catch the killer....and based on that, just nailed him with all the counts.

I could see that occurring in the WM....that had someone been caught for one murder, that they, the prosecution team, would have tried very hard to connect him to all of them, confession or not, considering the circumstances. I might be wrong here, but the thought did occur to me.

Thanks again old man.
