I'd generally agree Howard

Guilty by implication and circumstantial evidence

However, wasn't it that Grant Grainger chappie who was caught red-handed stabbing a woman because she was "extortionate" (Shades of Liz Stride?) ?

He must have been very close to being tried convicted as the Ripper, but wasn't

It's also been mentioned before that numerous other suspects were discounted as being the Ripper because they had alibis for some of the dates of the murders

For example, If arrested, there might be as much chance that the killer of Nichols, Eddowes and Chapman may have escaped because he had an alibi for Kellys murder


The Atlanta murders also mirror the escalation of possibly numerous single murders into a series with the perpetrator as some "monster"

Nemo:

Good points. I'll get back with ye today after work. These Atlanta crimes, in a way...at least to me, can be seen as representative of what might have happened had one man been convicted for one murder in the WM.

Default 15 Copycats ?

What if a London grand jury had decided that the murder victims in the Whitechapel Murder case had been killed by separate individuals ?

Nemo first brought this article to light on this thread....I just added the question above.

Atlanta Constitution
March 3, 1912

I admit that is has been a good while since I read about these cases, but somehow I don't quite buy this. In "each case"? In "almost every case"? Well, which is it? Each? Or almost every? Or was it "in almost every instance?"

Cellie:

There are several articles on this case which haven't been put on the boards that appeared after the previous 3/3/12 piece in the Constitution.
One of these days,I'll put them up.
Its an interesting skein,for sure.

How, I've been meaning to ask you, since you started posting these articles, did you look at the Macon newspaper? I tried to, but it uses some format that I don't have and that I'm not familiar with, and I couldn't get in. I think there's a chance there may be some more articles there. Can't promise, of corpse, but there's a chance. I believe it's called the Macon Telegraph.

Good! I'll keep an eye out, then. It'll be good to know if there is anything. Thanks, How.

Default Atlanta Ripper Book

I thought I would mention that there's a new book out on the Atlanta Ripper:

The Atlanta Ripper: The Unsolved Case of the Gate City's Most Infamous Murders, by Jeffery Wells.

This is a small book, 101 pages of text, including a few pictures. Wells is a local historian.

If this is posted elsewhere, I apologize for the redundancy.
