The Inspector Returns

The two or three of you who may be actually reading this blog might have wondered where I have been.  Well due to family stuff I had to put off some things and this was one of them.  Updates are coming with regard to another murder.  For now I'll let you know that I have confirmed the bodies of the Waynes were covered.  I can also tell you I have gathered another bit of info from the coroner's inquest held Sep. 30, 1911.  Piece by excruciating piece I am putting that thing together so bear with me.  Until my next updat (a few days from now)...

There are more people reading your post than you think. 99% of people do not leave comments. You have a very good site here. I Just started reading your site last week. 2-4 post a night. You do a great job. You should think about writing a book or books about hese murders that happened 100 years ago. Most people have no idea of the murders comitted with an axe 100 years ago. Entire families wiped out. People think that murders like this only happen with guns. Anyway I will be leaving comments here and there as I work my ways through your post. I would like to hear your opinion on H. H. Holmes.

Lonnie - I'm not sure what opinion you mean. I have a very low opinion of the former Mr. Mudgett. Are there alternate opinions on his guilt? Or are you referring to the article I linked to. I think his descendant believes Holmes may have been "Saucy Jack" but I don't think it is a widely held belief.

Sorry for not making myself clear on that. I Im wondering if you think it was possible that Holmes was the ripper. He certainly was an expert with a knife dissecting the the human body.

Lonnie - its possible but I'm not familiar enough with the idea to speak with any authority. I would say, IMHO only, that it's not likely. Holmes was extremely high functioning & organized. The Ripper was very disorganized. Comparing the last accepted Ripper murder to any of Holmes' murders and it's night & day from a psychological view.
