one of the most infamous of all times! any inputs out there? was it the crown prince? a masonic? someone else?
HUH???? What did you just say? By the way, welcome to our posting pages on Jack the Ripper!
Was just reading up on ripper cases, didn't realize there were possibly eleven victims. Kind of puts a new spin on things.
That was an interesting piece Fran. A mortuary
assistant is indeed creepy enough for crimes of this
I just caught the end of a discovery channel
documentary Jack the Ripper in America over the
weekend. The show was arguing that James Kelly
was Jack the Ripper. It traced his passgage to
America shortly after the killings stopped in London
and similiar killings started in new york. It also
presented similiar murdersin New Jersey, Texas, and
LA and showed James Kelly was in those places at
the time of the murder. To top it off, they had a
photo of James Kelly and after doing photo
regression, it looked very much like the police
To me, all these theories sound plausible while you
are hearing the arguement, but they are all as
unprovable as the other. But then again its the fact
that this case is unsolved that makes people still
discuss it today.
Yes, that and the gruesome aspect of it. I saw that show too Lasso, a while ago. I think Patricia Cornwell wrote a book on this, claiming to solve the case, but I haven't read it.
Yes, I believe she wrote that the artist Stickler was
involved. However, it has been proven he was in Paris for
some of the crimes that took place in Whitechapel.
Wow, think she would have researched better!
Actually Cornwell presented a very
believable case against him and explained
how that alibi of the Paris trip still
left him time to commit the murder .. I
enjoyed the book and I can see it ...
Of course as with any famous case as this
... until you have the killer confessing
with exact details or a video of them doing
it there are always different suspects that
one can make fit ...
I suggest the book Fran ... even if you
don't agree, it is a fascinating read ...
some very bizarre evidence is presented.
