What a joke !!! Here it is 121 years after the Jack the Ripper events in London’s Whitechapel district and millions of man-hours have been wasted in searching for him and still the authorities claim they have no clues. The simple truth is that the murder left an absolute blizzard of clues and these millions of sleuths have been too dull-witted to see what is placed before their eyes, in plain sight. It’s rather similar to The Purloined Letter by Edgar Allan Poe. Here is a quote from a typical respected Ripper web site which I shall not copy because of my respect for their do not copy declaration, even though the page is mostly copied from other sources — but go to this Jack the Ripper Tour website for an excellent, if pedestrian, description of the problem. Go there now but come back in a few weeks because I will reveal the true identity of Jack the Ripper and it will be shocking.
There is an even longer list of Jack the Ripper suspects in the Wikipedia. That is the current state of the Ripper art and it is unfortunate that there are so many decent people being accused of these viscious crimes. What is particularly sad is that all of these Jack the Ripper suspects have had their memory egregiously sullied but they are all innocent.
