In Latin 'free man' (freedman) would literally be translated as 'libertus' you could also get away with 'liberus homo', 'solvo vir' or 'solvo homo'.


I, Jackdaw, beg to differ with you.
Maybe you should look up the meaning of girls names?

It's odd you would post that documentary you know, I actually dedicated a thread to Kelly here: Mr James Kelly.. A Serious Jack the Ripper Candidate?

I really do think he's by far the most likely candidate for the Ripper you know, It all just seems to fit. I discussed why at length in the above thread, I hope the OP here doesn't mind me posting it too.

During a domestic incident Kelly picked up a kitchen knife.. . . . or was it his pocket knife? He slit his wife throat. Then he disappeared on the run. Last seen, if it was him, boarding a boat for the USA.
He was not the Ripper.

You're a tad too dismissive here to say the least.

Kelly has a fantastic motive for his attacks on women. He was well known to have hated them, and not just women but prostitutes in particular, these being the victims in the original ripper case. He also had a history of rather severe mental health issues and also, which is key here, severe violence against women, even murdering his own wife in an argument as you pointed out and murdering her in just the most brutal way too.

He was then sent to Broadmoor Prison thus his life was ruined by the women he once loved and murdered - He then later escaped pretty much just in time for the murders which took place in the Whitechapel area of London, and let's also not forget that he was very, very familiar with this particular, small area of London as this was where he previously, and yep, you guessed it, he met with prostitutes. It was also this meeting with prostitutes where he picked up a venereal disease which caused him to later argue with his wife and then murder her, thus there's a pretty clear link right back to them for a motive here.

What else, well he went over to America a short while later and of course once he did that the murders stopped occurring over in London and in fact similar ripper-type cases instead started occurring in America, these even becoming very public and at the time It was feared that the London Ripper had traveled overseas - Which Kelly had indeed done. Coincidence? Possibly but not likely.

In short that's why I feel you're being a bit rather unfair with how you so easily dismissed Kelly. With all due respect but I dare say you're not even attempting to look for the truth here, instead just have us belief your already made up beliefs in regards to the killer. This theory really has a lot going for it and Kelly is a very plausible candidate.

You can beg to differ all you want it does not make it correct. The word 'libertus' means 'freeman' (freedman). There was a legal process surrounding manumission and the word 'libertus' is the central part of the act.


Maybe you should look up the meaning of girls names?


Sure. It means 'beautiful woman' in Latin.

I do not dismiss Kelly as you say.
Much like I do not Tumblety who may well have been in prison on the night of a Ripper murder? The doc had been arrested for a lewd act with a boy.
Much like I do not Maybrick and his diary and pocket watch? Both items are of dubious origin.
Both suspects have been put to the fore by those who protect the realm.
And a secret locked away in the tower . . . . . . and never to be told :-D

Not interested in Libertus.
So now . . . . please tell the forum what the true meaning of the name CAROLINA means?
Then I may move onto the writing on the Goulston street wall . . . . and why the police washed it off?
Maybe the word JEWS. . . . however it was spelt? . . . .had Masonic links?

No probs.
I feel certain that the viewers are able to look up the name Carolina and what it means as a proposed baby name.
It would have been nice for you to say it all the same?

I send the pic come portrait soonest :-D

Are you having some reading comprehension issues? I posted that it meant 'beautiful woman' in Latin when you asked me to look it up and you requoted it yourself in the next reply.

Thanks.

If were are discussing the meanings of words in Latin and you ask me to look something up what language do you think I am going to check? Swahili?

Since you seem to have a tremendous grasp of language maybe you can link to where 'Carolina' (a girls name) means 'free man'.

Being considered erudite . . . and multi lingual . . . I do actually have a grasp of several languages.
i.e. your opening line on this post was incorrect grammatically.
It should have read IF WE ARE. . . .not IF WERE?
I feel certain that you do not need me to find you a web link re a baby name?. . . or its meaning?

If you have one that says it means 'free man' in Latin, then yes. If not you need to amend your initial statement.

Really,he broke it down for you.

Second,how about getting back to your theory,and providing more evidence to back it up ?

If pictures are going to be the evidence,then I am sure you can find more,that are more defined,less of an eye strain.

Please continue..............

Neither one of those addresses contains supporting evidence of your statement that Carolina means 'free man' in Latin.

From your first link:


Feminine form of the Latin Carolus, from the name Charles.
It is now the Italian, Spanish and Portuguese cognate of the name.

The states of North and South Carolina in the USA were named after King Charles I of England.


From the second:


Carolina c(a)-roli-

na,

car(o)-

lina as a girl's name is a variant of Carol (Old German) and Caroline (Old German), and the meaning of Carolina is "free man".


Nothing about it meaning 'free man' in Latin which would be 'Libertus'.

You sir are either blind. . . .or a liar.
Personally I don't care either way.

I would like to set a challenge to any so called "Ripperologist" out there who doubts that Patricia Cornwell was correct in her opinion that Walter Richard Sickert was in fact Jack the Ripper.



Beyond that, Cornwell says that Sickert painted several prostitutes in a way that resembled the photographs of the dead Ripper victims, but those photos were taken at the morgue, not the crime scene, and were published in books to which Sickert had access. He also painted these scenes two decades after the murders, and the women depicted are not necessarily dead. Yet what about "dried blood" on a Ripper letter turning out to be artist's medium? That still does not tie it to Sickert. Taking a stab with psychology, Cornwell believes the macabre paintings he did of menacing men sitting with murdered prostitutes is a reflection of his own crimes from two decades before, sublimated for a while to avoid attention. Cornwell leaves no room for the motive of simply being interested in bringing attention to his art by depicting sensational subject matter.






Cornwell admits that conclusive physical evidence is lacking at this time, but insists that the many links she has made between Sickert's life and the Ripper crimes just cannot be denied. He was a master of disguise, his initials match those on some of the Ripper letters, he had quirky handwriting (like Jack) and as a boy he had sketched naked and bound women. These are among the reasons why, she says, she has closed the case. But in fact, she has merely begged the question: She appears to have assumed Sickert is Jack and to have made the "right" facts align nicely with that thesis, thereby "proving" it. But she hasn't really proved anything. The records are incomplete, the remains are gone, the crime scenes have long since been contaminated, and evidence is missing or wiped away. Thanks to Cornwell, Sickert can be restored among the usual suspects, but she offers no scientific basis for tapping him as the infamous Red Jack.


Can Art Reveal a Killer?

Cornwell admits that conclusive physical evidence is lacking at this time......................and closing the case is ludicrous.....

Then post a translation that contradicts the ones I listed above. You can also use this translator which will give you the meanings in Latin of both 'libertus' (free man) and 'Carolina' (Carolus (Charles of the Franks)).


Personally I don't care either way.


The fact that you are responding proves otherwise.

Your painting and third person opinion of it do not interest me. I only pointed out yor erroneous statement about Latin.
