From August 7 to September 10 in 1888, "Jack the Ripper" terrorized the White chapel district in London. He is know as the most infamous serial killers of all times. Killing 5 women, some however believe it was 11.
Dear Boss,I keep on hearing the police have caught me but they wont fix me just yet. I have laughed when they look so clever and talk about being on the right track...I am down on wh*res and I shant quit ripping them till I do get buckled. Grand work the last job was. I gave the lady no time to squeal...I love my work and want to start again...I saved some of the proper red stuff in a ginger beer bottle over the last job to write with but it went thick like glue and I cant use it. Red ink is fit enough I hope ha. ha. The next job I do I shall clip the ladys ears off and send to the police officers just for jolly wouldn't you... My knife's so nice and sharp I want to get to work right away if I get a chance. Good Luck.Yours truly, Jack the RipperDont mind me giving the trade name. PS Wasnt good enough to post this before I got all the red ink off my hands curse it No luck yet. They say I'm a doctor now. ha ha
All five killings took place within a mile of each other. All the women were prostitutes; Mary Ann Nichols, Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Catherine Eddowes, and Mary Jane Kelly. In each instance the victim’s throat was cut, and the body was mutilated.
Based on the precise cuts, Dr. George Bagster Phillips proposed that Jack the Ripper had anatomical knowledge; He was possible even a doctor.
A number of letters were sent by the killer to the London Metropolitan Police Service, taunting officers and speculating on murders to come. The letters were gruesome and terrifying.
The detectives were expecting Jack the Ripper to seem mentally ill. Modern psychological profilers think Jack the Ripper most likely looked and acted perfectly sane.
