Jack the Ripper – A Love Story ( Excerpt 78 )
He went to the International Working Men’s Educational Club, which was the nearest building and returned with two men, Isaac Kozebrodsky and Morris Eagle, the trio discovered that she was dead, her throat cut!
They re-entered the club and raised the hue and cry, but they were too late, the moment that the returned to the club, I was away, I had no intention of hanging around to be caught by the mob.
Louis Diemschutz , When questioned later by the Police, said that he was certain that the Ripper was still in the premises when he arrived, he said he could sense his presence. How right he was. I had made good my escape, and would return to kill again, hopefully before this night was over.
When conversing with Inspector Abberline after the killings, He mentioned the various men who had been seen prior to and after the killings. It appeared that McGinty in his various guises had certainly muddied the water.
But back to the business in hand, I caught Catherine Eddowes in Mitre Square at around 12.20 a.m. she didn’t appear at all surprised to see me, the last words she uttered were, ‘I knew it was you all along, but no one would believe me?’
Well no one will hear her now, as she lay dying on the damp pavement, with her throat slit and her life’s blood ebbing away. Much too late, what a shame!
