This is one of those events in history that just doesn't go away.  Way back in 1888, a series of murders occurred in London that have never been solved.  They spanned the time of just a few months but the horrendous nature of the crimes fascinated the people during the time.  And the fact that the murderer has never been identified continues to fascinate people today. You have probably heard of Jack the Ripper. But who was he? What is known about him? How do we know that he committed all the murders? Come along and learn about one of history's worst people.
