With all the debate around this diary and watch, something has come to me that is a big problem with Maybrick without even looking at the diary.

A few witnessess saw the ripper up close. One witness, Isreal Shwarts crossed the street to help one of the pros and saw the ripper's face. They describe a man between the ages of 28 - 30.
Maybrick was close to 50 years at the time of the murders.Can a gap of 20 years be accepted here.If so, was Maybrick a 'babyfaced assassin' who looked 20 years younger than he was?
