  1. Very Interesting, I have been interested in the the Whitechapel Ripper for over 30 years, and I still feel "excited" whenever I read or watch articles. I recently went on a "Jack the Ripper Experience" here in the North East and it was conducted by an ex cop who had shown photos that I had never seen before. Over every book that I have read again and again, my conclusion is that James Maybrick be the man!
