Lifting The Ban on Series Four Spoilers.

As it has now been a decent amount of time since the airing of series 4 of Sherlock we feel it is prudent to relax the ban on discussion of series 4 episodes in the general Sherlock discussion areas.

We would ask that members continue to keep within the bounds of topic titles and subjects, in order to make it easier for people to choose which discussions they wish to view.

"How I Did It" by Jack the Ripper may actually be a real thing (well, sort of).... http://www.foxnews.c...is-genuine.html

Interesting, I wonder if we will find out in our lifetime for the confirmation.

 

That reminds me, have you guys heard about murderer being caught because he wrote a book about it (as so called fiction) in details only known to the murderer that are so similar with unsolved case and eventually convicted because of it?

I was going to say yes, I heard about it, but then realized that's basically the content of the article I linked to. So either i heard about it, and this Jack the Ripper thing is a different (but similar) case; or VBS and I are referring to the same thing.

 

(Don't you love it when I give a definitive answer? :P)

For real.

2000, a murder victim was found in gruesome conditions but the investigation was closed after six month because the lack of leads.
Three years later, around the same time a police detective went through cold case, the novel was published with eerie similarities about the characters and details that are not revealed in publications and only known to the murderer.

His name is Krystian Bala, a Polish intellectual, and the novel is titled Amok. (The case actually pushed the novel into best seller).

I read about it quite long ago, this is one of the articles with quite and pretty recent dates Murder He Wrote
and

Sick murderer caught by police after he wrote a book based on his crimes


The details I read from other articles:
- Polish's television show (equivalent to Crimewatch) received anonymous emails from South Korea and Indonesia
about that perfect murder.
Eventually it was found that Bala went for scuba diving trips to those countries during the time of the emails.
- evidence about him planning second murder to tie with his second novel was found on his computer.

Upon further reading, apparently there is connection to Sherlock Holmes after all.

The case was published by David Grann as part of the contents in The Devil and Sherlock Holmes: Tales of Murder, Madness, and Obsession (2010) titled True Crime (previously also published in The New Yorker and subsequently made into movie.

P.S. Similar case, The lying Dutchman: how a crime writer confessed to his wife's murder, about Richard Klinkhamer, who killed his wife and wrote Woensdag Gehaktdag, a Dutch saying translated as 'Wednesday, Mince Day' about seven ways to kill his wife. Being too gruesome, the manuscript was rejected by his publisher. Authority had strong suspicion, but couldn't find the body and he was free for couple of years until the detail of the manuscript surfaced in the Dutch underground press.
But still, only when the new homeowner of his previous house made alteration to the garden and broke the concrete on the floor shed, the remains of the wife was found, and he was arrested.
