Who Was He?

Jack the Ripper is the best known name given to an unidentified serial killer or killers active in the largely impoverished areas in and around the Whitechapel district of London in 1888. The name originated in a letter written by someone claiming to be the murderer that was widely disseminated in the media.

The Whitechaple Murderer

The large number of attacks against women in the East End during this era adds uncertainty to how many victims were killed by the same person.Eleven separate murders, stretching from 3 April 1888 to 13 February 1891, were included in a London Metropolitan Police Service investigation, and were known collectively in the police docket as the "Whitechapel".Opinions vary as to whether these murders should be linked to the same culprit, but five of the eleven Whitechapel murders, known as the "canonical five", are widely believed to be the work of Jack the Ripper. Most experts point to deep throat slashes, abdominal and genital-area mutilation, removal of internal organs, and progressive facial mutilations as the distinctive features of the Ripper's Modus operandi.

Twist in the plot

There are many conspiracy theories lining jack and his work. one of the main ones is he was a doctor. How the bodies were taken apart show a vast knowing of human anatomy. Another theory is that he had a deep hate for prostitution and saw it as a devils temptation for men to lust. He felt riding the world of their devilish beings he was saving the souls of gods children. There are many reasons as to why he might have done it is that he was suffering from psychological disorder.

wrong thing at the right time

Most of the reports and articles that were documented in the time of this happening all are just about Jack the ripper himself. Hardly any were about the victims of this horrifying murder. One of the main reasons this is because prostitution was looked so down on and it was always a "hush-hush" topic when it was spoken of. Prostitutes were looked on lower than some slaves and the common street bum. There was little to no sympathy for them outside of their own families. Who even at that time might not even had any ties to them once they entered the "show house".
