Monday Journal: 13 May 2022


Hello everybody.

I know it has been absolutely ages since I posted here. My research has been completely taking over my life. In fact, I am just about living in Whitechapel in 1888! From that piece of information, you have probably guessed what I am looking into. Yes, the case of Jack the ripper. There is an incredible amount of information available on this subject, and an overwhelming number of suspects. Obviously, my story is going to add yet another person of interest, but mine is purely based in fiction. I have an opinion on which person I think is responsible, and that would be a man that was found wandering the streets and taken into a lunatic asylum. He was checked in under the name of David Cohen (which was the equivalent of John Doe). He was the most violent inmate and died of tuberculosis not long after they admitted him. I think this was the Kosminki referred to by the police officer in their memoirs. (I also don’t believe there were only five victims. Even though Mary Kelly was the last, I believe there were more.

So, as you can see, I have been a busy bee even if it is not involving any writing! I have done so much research that I could probably write a book all about it and call myself a Ripperologist!

That has been my life since I last posted! Well, except for time mourning the loss of Andy Fletcher, and probably as a result, Depeche Mode. He was the quiet one, although he was the one doing all the audio mixing. Fairly important, LOL! Anyway, nobody could clap out of time better than him, quite a talent. I met him once, although didn’t say more to him than hello because I was eating in his restaurant. Then he went to eat, and I didn’t want to be one of those people that bothered someone when they were eating! He appeared in most of their videos, but it was usually a brief appearance.

Well, there is nothing else to me to add so, until next time, stay safe out there!
