Jack The Ripper Essay, Research Paper
Who Did Jack the Ripper Kill? – Jack Ripper Serial Killer Murder Jack the ripper is the most well known murders of all time! No killer has inspired more people, there is even people who have jobs know as “ripperologists.” One of the reasons Jack inspired so many people is because it was a time of morality, prosperity and stability. By cutting throats of victims and spilling the abdomen open, Jack The Ripper terrorized the women of London in 1888. The first killing took place in Whatechaple, a place of poor, scummy, diseased, dirty men and women. The victim, a 42 year old prostitute named Mary Ann Nicholls, was killed on August 31, 1888. The cops did not know that a serial killer was about to break loose! The second crime was only 1 week after the first. 47 year old Annie Chapman was also a hooker. By now the police knew that they had a problem that was going to stir-up some trouble with the media. On the night of September 29,1888 the Ripper struck again, this time he showed extreme skill, or luck, by the killing two prostitutes in one night. Even more extraordinary, one was killed just a few feet away from a street watchman. He had not even herd a sund. The victims this night were missing parts of there internal organs. The murder was so bloody that there was one logical way that Jack could have escape such a bloody crime unseen. Lots of Ripperoligists believe that Jack the Ripper was a woman. A female that even with bloodstains wouldn’t have rated a second glance during the East End panic. She could have walked anywhere at any time without drawing suspension because it was just naturally thought Jack was a Man. After that night the news that there was a killerl that could kill in front of a guard without him knowing once again struck terror through the streets of London. He sent a letter enclosing body parts of his victims to
identify himself. The letter was as follows: Dear Boss, I keep hearing that the police have caught me but they won’t fix me yet. I laughed when they look so cleaver and talk about being on the right track. The joke is about the leather apron gave me real fits. (This was undoubtedly a reference to the false clue the Ripper left behind the Chapman killing.) I am down on whores and I shan’t quit ripping them until I do get buckled. Grand work the las job was. I gave the lady no time to squeal. (Another reference to Chapman, the killer was taunting police with his knowledge that he murdered the woman only a short distance from the boarding house where seventeen people were sleeping in room with open windows.) How could they catch me now? I love my work and want to start again. You will soon hear of me with my funny little games. I saved some of the proper red stuff (blood from Chapman who had been drained of blood) in a giger beer bottle over the last job to write with but it went thick like glue and I can’t use it. Red ink is fit enough I hope. Haha.. The nex job I do I shall clip the ladies ears off and send them a bit more work and then give it out straight. My knife is sharp and I want to get to work right away if I get a chance. Good Luck. Yours truly, Jack the Ripper After this letter was sent, there were so many police and undercover detectives working on the case that they started to arrest each other! Six weeks had past by befor the ripper struck again. One the night of November 10, 1888 was the most Ghastly of all his murders because this one, unlike others, was not on the streets but in the room of Jeanette Kelly. So Jack had hours to destroy this body. There are many suggestions about who the ripper was. The one that made the mostsence to me was that Jack the Ripper was a woman.
