NOTE: Some of the above was originally posted to Noel O'Gara's website Message Board during March and April of this year and which Noel O'Gara replied to. (See MESSAGE BOARD STATUS below for an update). It is to be noted that his website, at this time of writing (May 2000), still heavily uses the Irish suspect (and links the attack on Barbara Miller to Tracey).
UPDATED NOTE : Noel O'Gara now speculates that William Tracey may have faked not knowing how to drive while O'Gara was teaching him to further establish a potential alibi against being the Yorkshire Ripper. This rather ludicrous speculation is definitely a grasping at straws, and, does not, among other things, explain away the Millward/Moore tire evidence and Moore's description of her attacker.
MESSAGE BOARD STATUS (December 2000): Uncorrected problems with the configuration of the message board have resulted in the writing over of older posts by newer posts, making a general mess of the message board. This has, effectively, removed the earlier discussions of his theories from the message board which are in this article. It is also to be noted that Noel O'Gara did, temporarily, alter one of my posts (replacing my website URL with his website URL). As well, on three known occasions, he has deleted relevant and/or critical posts or entire threads.
UPDATE (January 2003): The Message Board disappeared soon after Noel O'Gara's site was re-designed in 2002. Prior to this, the old posts could be viewed, but no new postings were allowed.
