The mystery of who was JACK THE RIPPER?

     Who was Jack The Ripper? is a real life detective murder mystery. Jack The Ripper is England's most infamous serial killer. He murdered and mutilated the bodies of at least five women, one of whom was pregnant. He sent handwritten letters in red ink to the authorities,along with half a victim's kidney, and posted how nice it was, frying and eating the other half.

     Jack The Ripper's crimes and taunting notes drove the Police of Scotland yard into a frenzy of activity searching for him. Vigilante groups looked for him everywhere. Despite this he kept striking with impunity. He struck repeatedly, in and around the same Whitechapel district, and with his victims always being female prostitutes. No one ever saw as much as a glimpse of him. Many suspects were questioned, but no one was ever charged. How was this possible?

     There is a strange rumor circling around Jack The Ripper, a rumor that he was of Royal blood, and so was protected. No one will ever know for sure, but in my ebook "Jack The Ripper versus Sherlock Holmes" this question is examined, and a possible suspect, of Royal blood, is named. His picture is displayed below, along with the book cover. If a real life murder mystery interests you, take a look at this ebook. Thank you, and have a great day. Author Phillip Duke.
