In the late 1800s, eleven women were brutally murdered in London's East End. Despite the police efforts at the time, and the numerous books, films, and documentaries created since, the killer has never been caught and his or her identity, to this day, remains unknown.
Most of the police records contained in the Metropolitan Police docket labeled: Whitechapel Murders have been lost, stolen or destroyed. Those who lived during the "autumn of terror" have long since passed.
While this was not the first serial killer case, Jack the Ripper was the first to become famous worldwide due to sensationalistic news reporting. Hand in hand the killer, and the media rose from the blood of the victims to terrorize and mesmerize the public.
Instead of somebody telling you who they think the Ripper was, here, you get to be the detective. The closest we have to a time machine to visit 1888 are the newspaper articles. In them, we learn who the victims were, what their lives were like and how they died. What did the police and public know and when did they know it? Turn out the lights; put on your Sherlock Holmes cap and enjoy.
