A Prank or a Crime of Passion?

“What is the meaning of it, Watson? said Holmes solemnly as he laid down the paper. "What object is served by this circle of misery and violence and fear? It must tend to some end, or else our universe is ruled by chance, which is unthinkable. But what end? There is the great standing perennial problem to which human reason is as far from an answer as ever.” - Arthur Conan Doyle, The Adventure of the Cardboard Box

Sherlock Holmes is up to something. He doesn’t believe Inspector Lestrade’s story that Miss Susan Cushing is a victim of a prank. She received a parcel with two human ears packed in a coarse salt. And what about the precarious cuts? Or the writing and the spelling correction from the parcel? Doesn’t these clues suggest something more than a prank made by a bunch of medical students?
