Gone But Not Forgotten

'S'okay. That's the theory that Barnett killed the first four to scare Kelly off the game, then killed her in a frenzy because she didn't take his subtle hint, isn't it?
Seems a little excessive.
It is excessive, by any normal standards. Its why I thought it was plausible to a degree. Having said that, I don't think it was right.
I still think it was a non-entity, his name probably in the files, and maybe known today. Someone with good local knowledge, who wouldn't really stand out in the crowd. The possible stressor being sexual dysfunction, since there was a concerted search for semen, yet none was ever found. His profession would probably be involved with butchery, fish preparation or tanning, something that being bloody wouldn't be unusual. Only hole in this idea is, since the outline fits, is why he stopped. One of the most entertaining 'deux ex machina' solutions to this is scepticemia. Both Eddowes and Kelly ME reports make reference to large amounts of fecal matter spread around the inflicted areas. It seems a bit pat, but I do like the irony, and it would fit with the florid faced sweating companion of one of the victims... I actually just think he was just stopped somehow; jail, other form of close confinement or death
Not romantic, but its as close as I get
