    Exclamation Jack The Ripper

    Jack the Ripper's suspected true identity will be revealed later, more than 100 years after his gruesome series of murders terrified London.


    ADVERTISING




    The killer was never caught and there have been countless investigations, books, articles, plays, films and musicals based on the murders.

    Now, documents from the original investigation have been discovered by a descendant of the officer in charge of the case in 1888.

    The papers from Chief Inspector Donald Swanson shed new light on the notorious case and are said to contain the name of the person suspected of the crimes.

    They are being loaned to Scotland Yard's Crime Museum - the oldest of its kind in the world - for its relaunch today.

    At least five women - all prostitutes - were killed by the Ripper and there are several theories as to his identity.

    His victims were either strangled or stabbed, with some of the bodies badly mutilated and even having organs removed. Some believed he had medical training.

    Until now, those in the frame have included an employee of the Royal Family, an artist and a man called Francis Tumblety who was arrested shortly after the last killing but escaped to the US.

    Who was Spring Heeled Jack?

    I remember reading about this years ago, apparently he jumped from roof to roof in Everton Valley.

    That spring heeled jack has appeared over many years and in different locations- largely around London. Some reports said he breathed fire as well as having incredible jumping skills. Could he have been an alien??

    Ill look forward to the ripper disclosure, ive read a few books on the subject

    James Maybrick is buried in Anfield Cemetery.

    I think it will just be another suspect to add to the long list. doubt we will ever get the true answer, but i bet they know who it was. I think it must have been more than one person.

    What sits at the bottom of the sea and scares all the other fish????????
