Jack The Ripper Tour

@Jackrippertour 1 month ago

Nobody knows why the murders stopped and for decades rumours have been circulated that the killer must have died, or committed suicide.Perhaps his family locked him away in an asylum or maybe he left the country to pursue his bloodlust somewhere else.One thing that is for certain, along with the other killer(s) involved in the Whitechapel murders, his true identity has never been ascertained.The Ripper case is best described as a great whodunit novel with the back page ripped out. For the last 130 years, generations of armchair detectives, historians and researchers have attempted to fill in that page with their preferred choice of suspect.As early as the second of the canonical five murders, the game of hunt the Ripper had begun. Local residents of the area were focused on a shadowy character that went by the nickname ‘Leather Apron’.Butchers, doctors and slaughtermen would follow, each taking their place as the new hot favourite to be the killer.The police at the time put forward their own theories as to who the killer may have been. Some, namely Sir Robert Anderson, who was assistant commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, went so far as to say the killer was identified but could not be prosecuted.Other senior detectives suggested the killer may have fled the country or drowned in the Thames. Some just maintained the killer was never caught. It seems they all had their own story to tell.By the 1970s the Ripper’s story had moved out of the East End, climbed the social ladder and was now dining with royalty or perhaps drawing some grand pieces of art. As the years progressed he was even writing classic novels such as Alice in Wonderland.He seemed to be moving further and further away from where the crimes happened. So maybe now, after 130 years, it’s time we brought the Ripper back home.Let us return to the crime scene and strip down the Ripperology beast to the basic origins of the investigation. From here, let us look at the suspects that present themselves to us and ask some very important questions.If the murders happened today, who would the police consider a person of interest?With this in mind, we have taken two key principles of the investigation. Who did the police seriously suspect and who was in the immediate area at the time?These are the questions all modern researchers should be asking and we hope this book will help you find the answers.Who was Jack the Ripper? The most in-depth study ever undertaken on the most likely suspects, is available now to pre-order - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Who-was-Jack-Ripper-Suspects/dp/152674872X
