Some interesting facts about the serial killer "Jack The Ripper"

"Jack The Ripper"

His identity remains unknown, but he was a serial killer who brutally and sometimes even inhumanely butchered at least five prostitutes in the Whitechapel district of Victorian London


1)Jack The Ripper possessed anatomical knowledge.
The removal of internal organs from at least three of the victims led to proposals that their killer possessed anatomical or surgical knowledge

2)His Identity still remains unknown.
There are now over one hundred theories about the Ripper's identity, and the murders have inspired multiple works of fiction.

3)His murders were brutal.
 The large number of attacks against women in the East End during this era adds uncertainty to how many victims were killed by the same person. Eleven separate murders, stretching from 3 April 1888 to 13 February 1891, were included in a London Metropolitan Police Service investigation, and were known collectively in the police docket as the "Whitechapel murders". Opinions vary as to whether these murders should be linked to the same culprit, but five of the eleven Whitechapel murders, known as the "canonical five", are widely believed to be the work of the Ripper. Most experts point to deep throat slashes, abdominal and genital-area mutilation, removal of internal organs, and progressive facial mutilations as the distinctive features of Jack the Ripper's modus operandi. The first two cases in the Whitechapel murders file, those of Emma Elizabeth Smith and Martha Tabram, are not included in the canonical five
