UK 1888: Jack the Ripper

    Yeah, I really liked Sugden's presentation! He was so rational & objective, and wasn't focused on "revealing the Ripper", so to speak. I'm not sure if I'll ever be absolutely convinced that I can opine on a suspect. Chapman was a paradox, for sure, but I wouldn't dismiss him. Nor would I get stuck on him as THE ONE, IYKWIM.

    Oh, I do know, G&M, lol... I'm finding some interesting parallels between JtR and some of the crimes and suspects surrounding the Black Dahlia case, atm. Very similar lust-murders, in the Elizabeth Short case, the murders of Otto Wilson & also some horrific unsolveds in Oklahoma city in the 70's-80's. I can't help seeing JtR as someone very similar to these more modern killers. Plus, in the Dahlia case, so many suspects... and many of them good ones, too!

    The rational, objective books always win my vote.. the "solved it!" ones always seem to be so flawed, when examined closely.

    @Lily - thank you so much for this thread. I read every word. I have nothing to add for the Ripper because I've never really studied him. That just might change. Thanks so much.
