Identity of the killer[edit]

Apart from the fact that I find it (to put it mildly) a bit premature to state that it is "extremely likely that Aaron Kosminski committed the murder and he is, by extension, Jack the Ripper", does that even belong here? Until proven beyond reasonable doubt who Jack the Ripper was, I propose to just keep the speculations around his identity on the Jack the Ripper page. Kvikvendi (talk) 15:13, 7 September 2014 (UTC)


The line "At about 3 a.m. on the same day as Eddowes was murdered, a blood-stained fragment of her apron contaminated with feculent matter was found lying in the passage of the doorway leading to Flats 108 and 119, Model Dwellings, Goulston Street, Whitechapel."

the word "feculent" should be changed for "fecal". I made the change, I suspect some autocorrect from the British form "faecal".

Dr Frederick Gordon Brown reports on post mortem: My attention was called to the apron, particularly the corner of the apron with a string attached. The blood spots were of recent origin. I have seen the portion of an apron produced by Dr. Phillips and stated to have been found in Goulston Street. It is impossible to say that it is human blood on the apron. I fitted the piece of apron, which had a new piece of material on it (which had evidently been sewn on to the piece I have), the seams of the borders of the two actually corresponding. Some blood and apparently faecal matter was found on the portion that was found in Goulston Street.
