Real or Fake?
There really is no way of knowing if any of the letters were actually sent from Jack the Ripper. In my opinion I don’t believe any of the letters were “real”. Many people became obsessed with the case and decided it was a good idea to pretend to be the Ripper and write a letter. We may never know the real reason to this but I don’t believe any of the letters have true validity to them. Yes, many killers correspond with the police and their investigation, but none of the letters really sick out. Something has to be in the letters that proves to the police they were indeed getting letters from Jack the Ripper. I feel that the Ripper wouldn’t necessarily risk writing a letter to the police, unless he decided to go all out and really mess with the police. These letters just seem mediocre.
