No, I read that news story on the day it broke. It is crap. The scarf in question allegedly belonged to the family of a police officer who was not assigned to the area where the crimes occurred. There is no record of the scarf in police records, which detail everything that was found at every murder scene. And even if it is real, it has been DNA contaminated for decades. That story is a fabrication by a man who owns a Jack the Ripper gift shop in London. [ Reply | More ]

He MAY have been Jewish. The murders occurred in a neighborhood where many Jews lived. One of the eyewitnesses described the killer as speaking with a foreign accent, and a high percentage of foreigners in that part of London were Jewish. But the most credible eyewitness descriptions involve a man with hair described as red, fair, or "carroty". Some Jews have red hair, but only a small percentage. [ Reply | More ]

November 1888, after what is commonly considered the 5th murder. The final murder (Mary Kelly) was the only one to occur indoors and had extremely severe mutilations, far worse than any of the others. He may have been "satisfied" and killed no more. Or he may have been sent to a prison or an asylum for another crime. Or me may have died. We don't know. [ Reply | More ]

So what do you suspect? Because most serial killers don't just stop on their own. Although anything is certainly possible. Were there any suspects that history has since identified that fell off the map on that timeline in some way? [ Reply | More ]

There was a suspect named Montague Druitt who committed suicide shortly after the last ripper suspect. His family allegedly suspected him to be the killer, and there is a story of uncertain provenance that an Anglican vicar (priest) working in the area where his family lived heard a confession implicating Druitt's family in the crimes. However, Druitt lived in a completely different part of London than where the crimes occurred, and to believe him to be the Ripper you need to believe that he killed prostitutes on the street at 3 AM, then hung out in the poor part of London for hours (covered in blood possibly), and then hopped a morning train back to the rich part of London. I find that implausible. He most likely killed himself because he was fired from his job for homosexuality and the timing is just a coincidence. [ Reply | More ]

I disagree- not that you can't lose weight while feeling hungry, but it's not necessary. Go refined carb/sugar free and you can feel full while dropping weight, since a lot of the hunger you're feeling is really your body craving those foods. [ Reply | More ]
