The Coincidence Of Emma

Post by Karen on Sun 28 Feb 2010 - 16:54

Jack the Ripper Items.

The P.M. Gazette points out that the Christian name of the first of "Jack the Ripper's" victims was Emma, and this, with the exception of but one letter, has reproduced itself throughout the series in regular rotation: -

1. E mma Smith.
2. M artha Trabram.
3. M ary Anne Nichols.
4. A nne Chapman.
5. E lizabeth Stride.
6. M itre Square (Catherine Eddowes). [Catherine Eddowes did use the name "M ary Ann Kelly" while working on the street.]
7. M ary Jane Kelly.
8. A lice M'Kenzie.

The London police are said to be on the track of a medical man who is believed to be the only original Jack the Ripper. So far, we have not heard that they have cabled for the arrest of a certain Auckland medico who in some respects answers the description.

Very interesting development and one in which I admit to never having seen before. Could "Jack the Ripper" have been taunting Inspector Abberline, whose wife was named Emma? Or is this just a coincidence?
