Green was mentioned as a possible Ripper suspect on a true crime website after a link was spotted between James Green, who washed blood from the street after the murder of Mary Ann Nichols, and James Green who appeared at the inquest of Annie Chapman. Unfortunately these two men are not one in the same. The first, who washed blood from the street, was the son of Emma Green, and lived at New Cottage 2 Bucks Row. On the night Mary Ann Nichols was murdered he went to bed early, and like his mother who was a light sleeper, heard nothing. The second, who attended the inquest of Annie Chapman, lived at 36 Acton Street, Burdett Road, and worked at Bayley's packing case manufactures, located at 23a Hanbury Street. Green went to the assistance of John Davis, who had found the body of Annie Chapman. At the inquest Green was described as of medium height with short neatly plastered down hair.
