Jack the Ripper – A Love Story ( Excerpt 52 )

  ‘My first conclusion is that you are looking for not one killer , but two. The weapons used and the way the victims were dispatched have no similarities whatsoever. You may think this was done deliberately to confuse but I will stand by my findings!’ I stated adamantly.

‘Bravo! you have found exactly what I wanted you to find’ stated a jubilant Abberline, ‘That is why I required your assistance your colleagues on Harley Street don’t give a damn what happens in Whitechapel their reports prove it.’

‘The first was a frenzied attack, possibly by a drunk or frustrated client, the weapon used was a bayonet or possibly a sharpened carving knife, she was stabbed numerous times there was no skill involved, I would describe this as a crime of passion or unfulfilled passion.’

‘I had myself, drawn much the same conclusion’, stated Abberline, ‘ And the other?’

‘The other is a very different kettle of fish, you might say? the man who perpetrated this killing has certain skills that I doubt your average killer would possess,’ I let my words hang for a moment for effect.

‘In what respect are we speaking, can you simplify it?’ asked the Inspector. ‘First bearing in mind the time factor, your men were patrolling this area at a frequency of say every 15 to 20 minutes, not really a great deal of time, but he managed to slit her throat and make other incisions in her abdomen, I believe he may have been planning to remove one of her organs, but the lack of time forestalled him,’ I stated speaking from experience and who knew better than I!’
