Theories on the Whitechapel Murderer

Post by Karen on Fri 12 Aug 2011 - 10:22

Whitechapel Theories.

The celebrated Dr. Wm. A. Hammond, of New York, is of the opinion that the Whitechapel murderer is a small, thin, quiet-mannered man with nothing to distinguish him from the common run of people, but the uncertain, quick and nervous eye which proclaims the maniac. He would also, probably, said Dr. Hammond, have twitching lips. Another eminent physician and specialist in mental diseases, speaking on the same subject, said: The Whitechapel murderer is a strong and powerful man, to judge by the manner in which the bodies are cut up and described in the newspapers. I think he cut the throat of his victim standing, and that this is done by one bold stroke of a knife which, however sharp, needs a powerful arm to sever the head. He puts his left arm around the woman's head, with his hand over her mouth to stifle outcry, and then cuts her throat. Nobody but a powerful man, animated by the impulse of a maniac, could do this as quickly and neatly as he does his work, and the bold, decisive strokes with which he then dissects the body carry out this theory.
