There are some interesting thoughts here although they degenerate into nonsense toward the end.

I was surprised to see, offering a pardon to an accomplice, coming up at this date. Maybe I missed something along the way but I always thought this was something that was done after MJK's murder and I assumed, probably wrongly, that it had something to do with a clue the police had.

However that is, I have wondered if this offer to an accomplice could be one of the Elements we have so recently enumerated. I know rewards were offered in other cases such as the Phoenix Park murders but was there ever another instance of reward offered to an accomplice or person with knowledge? Is this an original Element of the JtR phenomenon?

Anna:

There's a few articles found in American papers identical to this ( convicts and their opinions).

I have read a bunch of those.

In order to understand how JtR escaped, it was necessary to have intimate knowledge of the East End geography. I think it was easy for him to get away and hide and nearly impossible for anyone to catch him who did not have his knowledge. Just my opinion.

Anna, a pardon for an accomplice was offered during the investigations in to the 1873 Thames Mystery and also the Harriett Buswell murder the same year. There were other cases too but the practice didn't seem as popular in the 80's.
