Abstract

The infamous crimes of Jack the Ripper were described in this chapter. Although the identity of the killer was never ascertained, it is nevertheless possible to discuss aspects of the killer. It seems likely that the killer had medical training, was strong and daring. Other possible Ripper crimes committed inside and outside of Great Britain were described. The murders were described with respect to the victims, victimology, MO, time frame, motive and number of crimes. Three kinds of communication were described; letters, wall writing and the Lusk kidney episode. The nature of the police investigation was considered, along with the impediments to the police probe.
