How is it so far fetched though he mainly has the same mo as Jack the ripper and alot of other similarities

Ignoring the fact that it would mean the butcher would've been at least in his late sixties or early seventies? I'd say that's a pretty big nail in the "far fetched" coffin...

I'm not saying it's IMPOSSIBLE for someone of that age to commit such murders. But it's fantastically unlikely.

In addition to that...why did he not have any other sprees between 1888 and the mid to late thirties? That's a long time to go dormant.

I'm not going to definitively say that there's no chance he was, but to say it's not likely is putting it lightly...

It boils down to probabilities.

You have to ask yourself what are the odds that Jack the Ripper stopped killing in the East End of London in 1888 and resurfaced in the United States in Cleveland, Ohio in 1935 as the Torso Slayer.

Is it possible? Yes, anything is. Is it probable? I'd say no considering....

- the geographic distance between the two locations

- the time gap between the series of murders (there is roughly a 47 year gap between the two)

- the victimology is different. Jack targeted exclusively female prostitutes. The Torso Slayer targeted men and women.

- the MO was different. Jack mutilated his victims. The Torso Slayer castrated the men, dismembered his victims, often decapitating them. The missing body parts were usually not recovered suggesting the killer kept them.

- Jack communicated with the press (if you believe the letters were authentic). The Torso Slayer did not.

There are far more differences than similarities. In fact, aside from them both being unsolved serial murder cases involving individuals who were poverty stricken with some mutilation, there is virtually no connection.

Son of Sam shot innocent people and Zodiac shot innocent people, so they are likely one in the same killer.

I think I'll write a book about that...
