JACK THE RIPPER
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
Jack the Ripper: Beyond the
On August 31, 1888, a man named
George Cross was walking the streets of East London in the early hours.
George stumbled upon what he thought to be a wrapped bundle. He soon realized
how wrong he was. The bundle turned out to be the body of prostitute Mary Anne
Nicholls. Mary Anne's body had endured a large gash in the neck made by a knife and her stomach had been cut wide open. Sadly this was only the beginning....
Just one week after Nicholls
brutal murder, another prostitute lost her life to an unknown killer. Annie
Chapman's body was found horribly mutilated behind a lodging house just one mile
from where the first victim was found, Chapman's head was barley hanging on to
her neck. The muscles in her neck had been cut through. The killer had almost
sawed through the spinal column. She had also been disemboweled.
Several weeks later, the police
received a letter from a writer who claimed to be the killer. In the letter he
called himself "Jack the Ripper" the community of White Chapel had caught onto
the killer’s new name. From that point on the killer would be known by the
strange name, Jack the Ripper.
Two days after the police got Ripper's letter, Ripper had
taken another life. The killer cut the throat of a Swedish prostitute named
Elizabeth Stride. Before he could finish the cutting of his victim, he was
interrupted by an approaching wagon. He hurried away but was soon back to
slicing and dicing when he found a new victim, a forty-three-year -old
prostitute named Catherine Edwards. He took her into an empty lot where he slit
her throat, disfigured her face, cut her open and ran off into the night with
her left kidney.
So who was Jack the Ripper?
Originally police had no clues as to who would want to do these crimes. The
murders came to a screeching stop after the last victim was found.
Twenty-five-year-old Mary Kelly, an Irish prostitute was found dead in her bed.
The worst detail of her death was that she was 3-months pregnant.
The killer who took the lives of 5 people was never
caught. In current times there are a few ideas of who may have done it, a kosher
butcher, and an heir of English thrown. Still no one truly knows who Jack the
Ripper Really was...
