JTR Murders

Hmm…what do I know about the murders done by Jack the Ripper?

Well, ole’ Jack was a serial killer who targeted part-time prostitutes in the East End of London.  He is officially credited with five murders; however, there are a few others that may or may not be his doing.  JTR was never unmasked despite the constant attention of the police.  It is this fact that makes the murders famous more than the style or brutality of the murders themselves.  The apparent inefficency of the police force of London caused widespread panic and has allowed JTR to be a terrifying specter in our imaginations to this day.
