Francis Tumblety (c. 1833–1903) earned a small fortune posing as an "Indian Herb" doctor throughout the United States and Canada, and was commonly perceived as a misogynist and a quack.[43] He was connected to the death of one of his patients,[44] but escaped prosecution.[45] In 1865, he was arrested for complicity in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, but was released without charge.[46] Tumblety was in England in 1888, and was arrested on 7 November, apparently for engaging in homosexuality, which was illegal at the time.[47] It was reported by some of his friends that he showed off a collection of "matrices" from "every class of woman" at around this time.[48] Awaiting trial, he fled to France and then to the United States.[49] Already notorious in the States for his self-promotion and previous criminal charges, his arrest was reported as connected to the Ripper murders.[50] American reports that Scotland Yard tried to extradite him were not confirmed by the British press or the London police,[51] and the New York City Police said, "there is no proof of his complicity in the Whitechapel murders, and the crime for which he is under bond in London is not extraditable".[52] In 1913, Tumblety was mentioned as a Ripper suspect by Chief Inspector John Littlechild of the Metropolitan Police Service in a letter to journalist and author George R. Sims.[4][53]
