The mystery of the unsolved Jack the Ripper murders would puzzle the world for the next century and the years ahead. Scotland Yard Detectives, Stockholm’s finest minds, criminologist and experts (or “Ripperologists”) all endeavored and failed to unravel the mysterious identity of the world’s most notorious serial killer.
After more than a century of conjecture and inconclusive theories, the Ripper’s identity is no less a mystery than it was at the time of the murders. Is it possible Scotland Yard investigators were correct after all? Could the notorious Ripper have been an American visiting London? Furthermore, is it possible the visiting Ripper was an American physician and convicted serial killer?
