"What is wrong with that?,  I am not Jack the Ripper? ".

A news paper article on Jack the Ripper

Jack the Ripper was an unidentified serial killer generally believed to have been active in the largely impoverished areas in and around the
Whitechapel district of London in 1888. In both the criminal case files and contemporary journalistic accounts, the killer was called the
Whitechapel Murderer and Leather Apron .

     Jack was a lover of women,  but not just any woman.  He loved prostitutes and would specifically target them. His targets we're those who lived in slums of the East of London,  and after having sex with them he would cut open their throats and perform son abdominal mutilation.

    More chilling was the fact that Jack was so good in removing the internal organs of his victims it was believed he had anatomical or surgical knowledge.  This was not funny at all,   as all medical doctors, surgeons and butcher we're all prime suspects.

At the wake of September and Otober 1888 series of murder rocked the city of London most notably the white chapel.
    All 5 murders we're realted as a common trend of cutting the throat and abdominal  was reported.
   The victims we're young ladies mostly prostitutes in their early 20s.

Durward Street ), Whitechapel. The throat was severed by two cuts, and the lower part of the abdomen was partly ripped open by a deep, jagged wound. Several other incisions on the abdomen were caused by the same knife.

Chapman's body was discovered at about 6 a.m. on Saturday 8 September 1888 near a doorway in the back yard of 29 Hanbury Street ,
Spitalfields . As in the case of Mary Ann Nichols, the throat was severed by two cuts. The abdomen was slashed entirely open, and it was later discovered that the uterus had been removed.  At the inquest, one witness described seeing Chapman at about 5:30 a.m. with a dark-haired man of "shabby-genteel" appearance.
