Thank you very much for locating, copying and scanning all of those articles, rkay.  I spent a few hours in the library looking up some of these London cases, but could only spend short periods at a time and it was only paritally productive!  :/    You accomplished so much more!   These victims and their families deserve resolution of the murders. Now it is easy for anyone on the internet to look up these cases.  You never know what it might trigger.

Rkay....good work, lots of articles. Thank you for these postings. Next interesting aspect is the unknown witness to an interaction between Jacqueline & the "suspect/s, having gone to police with info....is the fact that the woman began a series of unusual happenings. EX: phone calls to her home, cards with birthday wishes & other strange occurances....which led up to her eventual attack after an outing on a deserted road on Dec.11th 1969.
The LFP reported the savage knife attack on Fri. Dec. 12th 1969 & then again on Sat. Dec. 13th 1969. Please note this witness did eventually end up dead in 1970....not quite sure on the date.
Interesting articles you have posted. Great work!

Jesa:  Actually the witness (her husband and son) all died in a house fire Tuesday, January 9th, 1973.  In March of 1973, a coroner's jury ruled the fire accidental.  A relative of the witness felt that this ruling was inconceivable.  Her reasons are given in the newspaper.  On Thursday, November 16th, 1972, 133 Elmwood Ave. burned to the ground.  Jackie, her mother and brother all lived there on the 2nd floor, a month before Jackie was murdered in 1969.  In October 1969, some pencils and perfume belonging to Jackie were found somewhere around the old Teacher's College, approximately 100 yards east of 133 Elmwood Ave.

rKay:  Before you fast forward to December 12th and 13th there were many other articles published on the following dates:  Thursday, October 16th - no new info, Friday, October 17th - 2 articles, Saturday, October 18th - 1 article and 1 letter to the editor, Monday, October 20th - 1 article and a composite drawing, Tuesday, October 21st - 1 article, Wednesday, October 22nd - 1 article, Thursday, October 23rd - 1 article, Friday, October 24th - 1 letter to the editor written by Jackie's mother Doris, Saturday, October 25th - 2 articles - no new info (1 of the articles turns out to be very ironic as it refers to a hidden witness plan to protect the identity of witnesses), Monday, October 27th - 1 article - no new info, Tuesday, October 28th - 1 article, Wednesday, October 29th - 1 article (re: the previously mentioned found pencils and perfume), Friday, November 1st - 1 article, and it seems to wrap up Tuesday, November 18th with 1 article summing up the case to this point.  (I have made a note to myself that there were many other articles in November and December, but all were concerned with the reward money or contained no new info.)  Hope this helps in your search.

Thanks jeb. My intention is to be as complete as possible, and your help is appreciated. Good to have something to check against. So far my digging has gotten to October 23rd, which I'll post here now, but will continue onward, especially with reference to what you've detailed.

I must admit that the additional information you're contributing is very compelling. I will definitely follow up on those leads. What's astounding me, considering what you've brought up, is whether the police at the time did the same. As you said elsewhere, this is a complex case, with a lot of information seemingly apparent, and certainly seems to point in some very definite directions worth pursuing.

Monday October 20th revealed a definite break with the suspect image, and the October 21st article suggests the police received an enormous response.

October 22nd. A discussion of the witness from Welland, and a recap of political discussion of offering a reward for information and the policy towards hitch-hiking:
