Jack The Ripper
Posted 27 March 2004 - 07:09 PM
There is lots of information about the many suspects including their profiles and histories at this website: Jack The Ripper - The Suspects
I personally believe that the Ripper was probably Francis Tumblety. Tumblety fits many requirements of what we now know as the ‘serial killer profile.’ He had a supposed hatred of women and prostitutes (the abortion with the prostitute Dumas, his alleged failed marriage to an ex-prostitute, his collection of uteri, etc.).
Tumblety may have also had some anatomical knowledge. Several acquaintances of his in America believed it likely that he was the Ripper when interviewed in 1888. There is a strong case to be made that he was indeed the Batty Street Lodger.
There are also many other reasons that support him being the Ripper, which can be found via the above link.
Who do you think think was the Ripper?

can't remember the title but it is by a recently retired Murder Squad officer who has done two things...
a) discounted every known suspect for the role
argued convincingly that there were two murderers...
if I come acroos the books title I'll post it up

There will always be theories about Jack the Ripper but that's what makes history what it is.The mysteries,the unknown and the weird that we just don't understand because it was the past.You find the past my friends.

I know this sounds silly but could someone enlighten me on the the word anatomical.
I haven't really studied Jack the Ripper that closely, but from what i've seen no-one REALLY knows WHO Jack the Ripper was. There are all these POSSIBLE suspects. But for all we know it could be some one TOTALLY different and someone unknown and unheard of.
