Jack The Ripper: The Uncaught Serial Killer

Jack The Ripper: The Uncaught Serial Killer

The mystery of Jack the Ripper began on August 31, 1888, when a dead woman's body was found in Whitechapel Street. Her throat had been cut and her abdomen had opened. In 1888, Jack the Ripper terrorized London, killing at least five women and mutilating their bodies in an unusual way, indicating that the killer had considerable knowledge of human anatomy. The Infamous murderer Jack the Ripper, who was mostly active in the largely impoverished areas of and around London's Whitechapel district was never captured or even identified. 

He killed at least five prostitutes, and not only did Jack the Ripper snuff out life with a knife, but he also mutilated and disemboweled women, removed organs such as the kidneys and uteruses, and his crimes seemed to depict an abhorrence for the entire female gender. Attacks attributed to Jack the Ripper typically involved female prostitutes living and working in the slums of the East End of London. From August 7th to September 10th, 1888. Several other murders that occurred around that time period have also been investigated as "Leather Apron" (Another name given to the murderer).

Despite numerous investigations claiming definitive evidence of the brutal killer's identity, his name and motive are still unknown. Public fascination arose after September 27, 1888, when both the Central News Agency and the police received a letter claiming to have been from the killer. The name "Jack the Ripper" also originated due to this letter, written by an individual claiming to be a murderer in the media. The letter is widely believed to have been a hoax and may have been written by journalists in an attempt to heighten interest in the subject and increase the circulation of their newspapers. Hundreds of other letters followed, most of which were confirmed hoaxes. Some of them seemed genuine, including the October-missive-datelined "from hell"-with which the human kidney was enclosed, supposedly from one of the victims.

Over the past several decade's various theories about the identity of Jack the Ripper have been formulated, including claims accusing the famous Victorian painter Walter Sickert, a Polish expatriate, and even Queen Victoria's grandson. Since 1888, more than 100 suspects have been named, contributing to widespread folklore and ghoulish entertainment surrounding the mystery. 

In the fall of 1888, Jack the Ripper’s murders suddenly stopped, but London citizens continued demanding answers that would not come. Because as Jack the Ripper case remained open, the industry arose around it. Jack the Ripper was the subject of more than a hundred non-fiction books, dozens of novels, several tv series, and films. But the mystery of "Jack the Ripper" is still unsolved.
