I was intrigued that, given the extent of the horrific injuries to the victims, to what extent did the press at the time go to in their reports? Did they convey the full extent of the injuries or just stick with saying the victims were mutilated? Also for example were the inverted 'v's on Eddowes face reported in the press at the time? It intrigues me that if the murderer was at the head end of the victim ie. out of the blood and gore, then they would actually have been v's to the perpetrator. Look forward to any replies.
