A series of ghastly murders leaves England abhorred in 1888. An unidentified serial killer is on the loose, killing women under the seclusion of night in the Whitechapel district of London.
His victims are all female prostitutes who lived and worked in the slums of East End, London. Each victim had their throats cut prior to the serial killer’s abdominal mutilations.
The name given to this brutal murderer was Jack the Ripper, an elusive character shrouded in mystery.
News spread quickly about his killings and an extensive newspaper coverage bestowed widespread and enduring international notoriety on Jack the Ripper.
At the time, there was an outcry for justice and a huge police investigation into the killings were under way.
The police were, however, unable to connect all the killings conclusively and never found the Ripper.
Today, we’ll investigate the murders once again in this documentary alongside retired murder squad detective Trevor Marriott.
Trevor believes he has finally unmasked Jack the Ripper. To fully illustrate and prove his theory, he’ll take us from Germany , to London and finally the U.S where he believes the real Jack the Ripper died.
