Montague John Druitt
Druitt was educated at Oxford to be a lawyer. he died by drowning, most likely a suicide on December 21, 1888. his death was so soon after Kelley’s murder and he had access to “private information” about the case, he has been named a suspect.
James Maybrick was a cotton merchant and was poisoned by his wife. his diary suggestedly contained a confession for the murders, it is widely considered to be a hoax.
Barnett was Kelley’s lover. Mary did not want to get back together with him, which led to speculation that he killed her and used the Ripper’s mode of killing to cover it. But he didn’t kill the other four girls that led up to the final murder.
Thomas Neill Cream
Cream was a convicted serial killer and he was executed in 1892. He poisoned his victims. his last words were said to have been “I am Jack…” This, however, is speculation.
James Kenneth Stephen
Stephen was a poet who had obvious misogynistic tendancies and served as a tutor to Prince Albert. Because of his connection to Prince Albert and therefore the Royal Conspiracy Theory, Stephen has been implicated in the killings.
Rosyln D’Onston Stephenson
Stephenson was a journalist who came to Whitechapel just before the murders started and left just after they ended. He inserted himself into the investigation, writing letters and newspaper articles about it. His short-term proximity to the murders and his interest in the crimes have made him a leading suspect in recent years.
Prince Albert Victor
He has been implicated as central to the theory that the Ripper crimes were part of a royal conspiracy. He had relations with prostitutes and had syphilis. He was out of town during some of the murders. From Hell is based on the royal conspiracy, it is discounted by most Ripperologists.
