I thought for years that "Jack The Ripper" had to be the most evil and insane individual to ever exist on this planet. But last week I watched a History channel special on H.H Holmes. If he was not "The Ripper" he still takes the top spot as the worst monster in human history.

@TheWetCoast I read a book recently called "The Devil in the White City" about H.H. Holmes another Ripper suspect the book is being made into a Movie with Leonardo DiCaprio
mary-ann was the name this killer/killers were looking for all prostitutes used this name .
take a map of london and draw a line between all the murders a pentagram appears more than 1 person was invloved and the way the victims entrails were thrown over the shoulders leads many to think it was by higher ups in society the royal alpha lodge in kensington is one of seven in palaces at the time
aleister crowley was in london at the time as was the father of winston churchills father and the amount of ritual involved makes those murders seem well planned out more than chance killings by some seaman .
and mitre square just happens to be across the square from a masonic temple and the last clue never to be followed up is a drawing of a suspect that matched lord randolph-spencer -churchill my 2 cents anyway

A story from The Express Newspaper Published September 21, 2013 in the U.K - another "Solved the Jack the Ripper article".
I have always been fascinated by the "Jack the Ripper Story" having read many books and watched many documentary's on the subject, the internet also has an abundance of websites dedicated to the topic.
It now seems that a U.K Detective by the name of Trevor Marriott (a former murder squad detective with Bedfordshire police) Thinks he has solved the case...... I wonder.
I have posted some links appertaining to the original ripper case and the recent newspaper article for those ATS members unfamiliar with its history.
The Jack the Ripper mystery that has kept the world enthralled since the killer first struck on the streets of Victorian London has been blown apart on the 125th anniversary of the grisly crimes by a former murder squad detective.
And the bad news for the countless millions of amateur sleuths who have spent years trying to identify the nation’s most notorious serial killer is that he never existed.
He was just dreamed up by a drunken journalist called Thomas Bulling who wrote a forged letter to Scotland Yard in 1888 pretending to be “Jack” so he could obtain a scoop.
More than 300 books and dozens of films and TV programmes have named in excess of 100 different men, often on the flimsiest of evidence, as the serial murderer who slashed the throats of five women who he then disembowelled, bringing terror to the gas lit streets of Whitechapel.
The suspects have included everyone from Queen Victoria’s grandson the Duke of Clarence to Alice in Wonderland author Lewis Carroll.
Some even said a Sioux Indian warrior called Black Elk, who toured Britain with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show in the 1880s, was the guilty man. Others believed child charity campaigner Dr Barnardo was “Jack”.
But Trevor Marriott, a former murder squad detective with Bedfordshire police, has spent 11 years carrying out a detailed cold-case review of the killings, he has trawled Scotland Yard’s files and used modern-day police techniques backed up with state of the art forensic analysis.
“The facts of this case have been totally distorted over the years,” said Mr Marriott.
“The general public have been completely misled by any number of authors and publishers.
“Jack is supposed to be responsible for five victims, but there were other similar murders before and after the ones attributed to him, both in this country and abroad in America and Germany.”
In total Mr Marriott has discovered 17 unsolved Ripper-like murders committed between 1863 and 1894. He believes a German merchant seaman called Carl Feigenbaum was responsible for some, but not all of those killings.
Feigenbaum was a crew member on ships that regularly docked near Whitechapel. He was executed in New York in 1896 after being caught by US police fleeing the scene of a Ripper-style murder there.
