Not quite over 50% yet but I'm basically with you on that.

Smith's attack wasn't unique in the annals of London crime as post 2 on this thread demonstrates:

Its not the fact that it was unique or not?

Its about timing and geography and the rarity of such attacks

The cross roads of Brick lane and Old Monique st place a completely different accessment of this attack

AT THE HEART OF THE JTR MURDER SCENE

Go there and look at it yourself

Jack must have started with a different MO and developed..that makes sense

I am inclined to think Emma Smith was an early Ripper attack. Also I don't think she was attacked in the street by a gang. Just my opinion.

Hi Rob

I agree. That said I still have concerns

Can you expand on your opinion?

My interest is in the geography and the walk from poipular that night that might have taken her from commercial road through the area around greenfield st towards brick lane

Hi Jeff,

It all depends on what sort of Lodging House number 18 was. If it was a mixed Lodging House then I have a feeling that Smith was attacked there.
If it was women only then that theory goes out the window.
