Jack the Ripper Murders

Jack the Ripper is the name given to the man or woman who brutally murdered 5 (possibly  more) prostitutes in London, near Whitechapel. His/Her true identity has never been confirmed, although the police and authorities have many theories and suspects. Part of the reason the police has a difficult time determining who the killer was is, in part, due to the lack of evidence and forensic technology in that day and age. Jack the Ripper used a knife and slit his victimes throats, and sometimes brutally sliced up their bodies and organs. Part of his popularity can be contributed to the press coverage the media allowed him. To this day, the true identity of Jack the Ripper has not been discovered.
