Jack the Ripper
In 1888 at least five women were mutilated in London’s poor East End. There was a pattern to the murders of brutal deep cuts - and most had a “trophy” organ removed with such precision that anatomical knowledge was assumed. The half-kidney in the “From Hell” parcel was similar to one from victim Catherine Eddowes, who had kidney disease. While the case is still unsolved Ripperology is a growth industry. Scandalously most original evidence has been lost. This makes it difficult to apply modern techniques of detection including DNA testing.

 This book cover comes from a Gazette engraving. George Lusk in the centre got the “From Hell” package as the chairman of the Whitechapel Vigilance Committee.

 From Gazette engraving, “Catherine Eddowes Found”.
