‘Jack the Ripper’ was a serial killer who disembowelled women — we need to stop celebrating that

From ghost tours, to books, Halloween costumes to theatre productions – and even a museum – the Jack the Ripper industry is well and truly alive.

His is the name given to the unidentified serial killer who was believed to be responsible for a number of murders in and around the Whitechapel district of London between 1888 and 1891. It was during this period that the lives of Mary Ann Nichols (Polly), Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Catherine Eddowes and Mary Jane Kelly were so brutally ended.

Known as the Whitechapel Murders, the killings saw an unsubstantiated number of female sex workers murdered by an unknown assailant[s]. At various points, some or all of these unsolved murders have been attributed to the notorious “Jack the Ripper”.

And yet the fact remains that Jack the Ripper is not, and never has been, real. The name “Jack the

Police question if 5 missing women are victims of a serial killer

TACOMA (KCPQ)— The discovery of a partial human skull last month in a wooded area in East Pierce County has reignited interest in solving some long-term missing persons cases.

Investigators won’t know if the skull fragment is from a man or a woman until DNA test results are complete.

“Anytime there are human remains found in the state, loved ones of missing persons from around the state and sometimes bordering states will reach out and make sure that we are making that comparison and ruling out or checking on their loved ones,” said Carrie Gordon with the Washington State Patrol’s Missing and Unidentified Persons Unit.

Vanished: Search for five women missing in Tacoma includes possibility of a serial killer

There are more than 1,800 missing persons statewide and 146 of those are women in Pierce County.

Investigators are taking a regional approach to try to solve these cases because serial offenders don’t pay attention to law enforcement jurisdictions.

Russia’s worst serial killer ‘The Werewolf’ who raped 84 women gives CHILLING interview

But he accused his wife of “treason” — “there was an incident with the infidelity of my wife. Then I… if I can say so… ‘treated’ that young man.”

He coldly revealed to police how he cruelly selected women to kill during his 18 year reign of terror in Irkutsk region between 1992 and 2010.

“The victims were those who, unaccompanied by men, at night, without a certain purpose, were on the streets, behaving carelessly, who were not afraid to enter into conversation with me, get into my car, and then go for a drive in search of adventures, for the sake of entertainment, ready to drink alcohol and have sexual intercourse with me.”
