It's been 130 years since the world’s most infamous serial killer stalked the streets of Victorian London, leaving a ghastly trail of murder and mayhem in his wake.
In 1888, the killer known as Jack the Ripper murdered and mutilated between 5 and 7 women in and around the impoverished area of Whitechapel, in London’s East End. Then, no sooner had he carved his name into the history books, but he was gone, with only his gruesome legacy remaining to capture the public imagination.
Even today, nobody knows the real identity of Jack the Ripper for certain. However, modern researchers have now started using criminal profiling in a bid to better understand this elusive killer.
