    I`m not really convinced...

    But, in that time, if someone was wearing pants it meant they were a guy.

    @DuckBoy- That`s what the vid is saying. A quick change of clothes and she could have walked right past the police.

    Multiple women, I suspect. Jealous wife plus copycats in a prostitute war, killing each other.

    One woman stabs the other then, screams: "A MAN!!! He went that way!!" and calmly walks the other way as the bobbies run down an empty alley.

    "What if I told you the possibility was possible?"
    I`d say that is obviously obvious.

    I thought it was Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence.

    An interesting argument, but I dont think it was her. Based on the attack of Eddowes where The Ripper removed her kidney with precision, it seems likely that the killer had medical/butchers experience of some kind. While her husband may have been a doctor, by the time he married her he was specifically an obstetrician, and while I have no doubt in HIS capabilities to remove a kidney despite, I doubt that his wife would have been capable of removing the victims kidney with such precision with her lack of experience simply by being around her husbands work. Sure there could have been medical books laying around that she could have used to teach herself, but that level of precision seemed practiced, and I dont think that she could have done that in the proposed 5 minute window that she had to remove it. With that said, Ive always been a Ripper fanatic, and love to debate things like this :)

    Um, not compelling at all. What did the murderer executed in Australia have to do with anything?
    In what capacity did the wife serve in her husband`s abortion clinics? Was she a trained nurse? A receptionist? The coat hanger passer? Innuendo, conjecture and unsubstantiated `facts`, do not a compelling case make.

    @CaptKangaroo - My thoughts exactly.

    In fact this became a total wash when the man executed in Australia came up, and the fact that his name was not given makes it even more suspect - His name (and I don`t believe there was any doubt of it being his real name) was Frederick Deeming.

    From what I can find, belief is that Deeming was in South Africa or Jail, at the time of the killings and the only link I can find is that he boasted that he was responsible for the killings.

    Also, when the person in the video says that no one else would have posted the letter? Well, its very common in the UK to hand over your letter/parcel in a postoffice for the clerk to affix a postmark/stamp (which they then throw into a mailling sack behind them). I believe it`s plausible to hand over a letter for the clerk do to all the work - and with this being during the time where it was very common for clerks to do a lot of work for the customer.

    Anyone who`s dressed a Christmas goose knows how to clean out the organs with precision. A jealous wife could have done it. But I doubt it. Women don`t usually kill like this. Female serial killers follow a different pattern.

    "Female serial killers follow a different pattern."
    See, that`s the thing: It`s THE WAY there was pattern that makes me think "I need to think in a way that those guys did not, since they did not have any suspects pan out."

    It was all like: "See this letter mocking you? It`s a clue!! A CLUE!!! IT`S THE GREATEST CLUE THAT EVER CLUED THE CLUELESS!!!
    Bite this clue!! I SAID `BITE IT!!!`"
    That sort of thing just makes me think: "Hmm... I... am... being... mis-di-rected..." then, I ask: "What do most, if not all, have in common?"

    cont
    "...Witnesses who thought they saw Stride with a man earlier that night gave differing descriptions: some said her companion was fair, others dark; some said he was shabbily dressed, others well-dressed..."
    How about `A person wearing expensive material clothing that did not fit well.`
    "...no sign of a struggle..."
    How about `Anesthetized from behind by a person she was convinced was not a threat.`

    A woman, the victims either recognized as a woman or mistook for a teenager, with access to medical tools and not necessarily remote of the investigating personnel.

    DNA would not have been a consideration in those days, indeed fingerprinting had yet to be used in a conviction. It would be nice to think someone would use modern DNA methods to finally give us some answers.

    Nah. Pure speculation. Besides, middle class people generally moistened their stamps with a small sponge in a sponge holder on their writing desks. They didn`t lick them.

    I love that this is still so widely speculated and debated. A tragedy of course, but one that has kept our attention for over a century
