    The Jack the Ripper Conference 2018 is very pleased to announce our next speaker for this September in London.
    DR. MARK R. VOGEL



    Dr. Vogel is a clinical psychologist with over thirty years of experience, including working in the NJ penal system where he performed parole evaluations on hundreds of inmates. He completed his BA and MA at Montclair State University in Montclair, NJ, and his doctorate degree at Yeshiva University in New York City.
    Dr Mark is a dedicated Jack the Ripper researcher and has lectured on the infamous case at libraries, and for private organisations in his home state of New Jersey.
    His first novel, Crestwood Lake, a horror mystery, was published in 2015. Dr. Vogel will be discussing his most recent and highly acclaimed novel, The Ripper’s Time, a historical fiction story about Jack the Ripper, published in 2017.
    The story centres around history professor Henry Willows is in love—in love with Catherine Eddowes, the fourth victim of Jack the Ripper. Although over a century distant, Henry’s obsession knows no bounds. With the aid of an ingenious physicist, Henry achieves his raison d'être: a means to travel back in time, stop the world’s most infamous serial killer, and save the woman he loves. But the fabric of time isn’t easy to change . . . and the Ripper has plans of his own.
    Dr Mark Vogel joins Martin Fido, Prof David Wilson, Dr Katherine Ramsland and JJ Hainsworth in a fantastic line up at the Arbor City Hotel this September.

      Many thanks for sharing How.

      News of Dr Mark speaking at the main event this September has been very well received on social media and on the main Jack the Ripper Facebook Page.

      We have several more speakers to announce but it’s safe to say the bar has been raised very well this year, quite fitting for the 130th Anniversary in London’s East End.

        Just out of interest - how many members have attended any of these JtR related conferences? Did you find them helpful to your research? What was your take away (besides hangovers and meeting others).

            Hello Tania

            Having been to several conferences, I can honestly say that I've always learned many, many new things at every single one of them.
            Kind regards, Sam Flynn

              The official Jack the Ripper conference (and still the only Jack the Ripper conference in the UK ) as started by Stewart Evans in 1996 goes from strength to strength. We are now into our 22nd year and the original concept of a big hotel venue , top speakers , conference packs and dinner function is still part of the weekend.

              We hope everyone is richer for the experience of attending.

              There is a little something for everyone and the great thing is you dont have to be a seasoned Ripperologist to come and enjoy it.

              You should come along sometime

                The Jack the Ripper Conference team are very pleased to announce:

                MARTIN FIDO
                The French Connection




                At the 130th Anniversary Conference in London this September, Martin will present his research about how the discovery of the details behind the Met's Mary Jane Kelly photo is the single most important discovery in Ripperology over the last 20 years.
                It also confirms his speculation thirty years ago that despite a huge fictional content and the impossibility of tracing the alleged source, Inspector H of Thames Valley, the old French book "Jacques l'Eventreur" (subsequently translated by Molly Whittington-Egan) contains some rare accurate information about the early days of the police investigation with important implications for our view of Sgt Thick and John Pizer
                A real treat from one of the foremost experts on Jack the Ripper and the Whitechapel murders. Not to missed.
                Tickets :
                www.crimeconference.com
                ABOUT MARTIN FIDO

                Martin Fido became involved in writing about Jack the Ripper almost accidentally. A university teacher of English literature who had tutored and lectured at Oxford’s Balliol College, Leeds University, Michigan State University and the University of the West Indies, he was preparing a book on science, philosophy and 19th century literature when a warehouse fire in 1983 destroyed all his work, and after discussion with his agent he wrote The Murder Guide to London.
                This led to his reading the memoirs of Scotland Yard chiefs, and he realised that Sir Robert Anderson’s “poor Polish Jew” must have been Macnaghten’s“very strong suspect” Kosminski.
                Astonishingly, no one had ever realized this before, though unknown to him fellow researcher Paul Begg had reached the same conclusion and, like him, had studied the veracity and reliability of the various witnesses and concluded that Anderson was unquestionably the best.
                Paul and Martin quickly became friends and with Keith Skinner produced the bible of Ripper studies, The A to Z of Jack the Ripper.
                Subsequently Martin broadcast the weekly programme Murders After Midnight on LBC Radio for 20 years, and with Keith appeared monthly on The Pete Murray Show answering listeners’ questions about murder.
                In 2000 he moved to America, and since 2001 has been teaching Writing and Research at Boston University.
                Martin has been a regular guest speaker at the official UK Jack the Ripper Conference since 2013 and will be working with us at H Division Crime Club and the Dagger Crime magazine in the near future.
                We look forward to welcoming him back once more for the 130th Anniversary Conference in London’s East End this September.

                  NEW BOOK ANNOUNCEMENT:

                  PRIME SUSPECT: The Search for Jack the Ripper

                  By H Division Crime Club
                  ———————————————


                  The crimes committed by Jack the Ripper 130 years ago in Whitechapel, London, have baffled the world. Since that autumn in 1888, historians, researchers and armchair detectives have attempted to unravel the world’s greatest murder mystery, but to no avail..... until now.

                  Prime Suspect: The Search for Jack the Ripper, gathers together a top team of dedicated researchers to look once again at the Whitechapel murders and ask - if this happened today, who would the police consider to be, a person(s) of interest ?

                  Where would they concentrate their efforts and in doing so, would the real Jack the Ripper finally be revealed ?

                  Using original police reports, eye witness testimony and criminal profiling techniques, we bring you the prime suspects as told through the eyes of a modern police investigation.

                  After 130 years, is the secret identity of Jack the Ripper about to be revealed?

                  —————————————

                    Lindsay Siviter
                    Lord Lucan: An Enduring Mystery




                    At this years Jack the Ripper True Crime Conference, in London this September , Lindsay looks back at one of the most infamous criminal cases in British History. The disappearance of Lord Lucan.

                    Lindsay has been studying the Lucan case for over ten years and is currently writing a new in depth book on the case to be published by Pen & Sword books. While acting as a consultant for the BBC Lindsay had privileged access to and was asked to analyse the personal archive belonging to one of the chief investigating officers on the case.

                    Within these papers and others she has located herself, Lindsay has discovered many new things some of which she will reveal in her presentation.

                    Over the years Lindsay has spoken and become friends with several people and families involved in the Lucan case including Lady Lucan, having spent many hours in her flat discussing the case. Lindsay will also be bringing along her collection of personal items once owned by Lord and Lady Lucan for attendees to see and hold.

                      Thanks How for posting this up.

                      Lindsay returns by great demand following her amazing talk on Florence Maybrick at the 2017 conference in Liverpool.

                      Her Lord Lucan talk at this years main event will be a real treat for the delegates as it contains previously unreleased information and details of her upcoming book which promises to be the definitive account of the Lucan investigation.

                        I was gonna post some marketing speel about this Septembers 130th anniversary conference but we’re pretty much sold out. So i dont have to bother with the corporate stuff. The team are Very pleased to be delivering another 100 plus attendee event. Thanks to all who support us and making it probably the easiest and smoothest conferences to organise in the last 7 years.

                        Once this is over we have to decide if its time to retire on a high. ....... or do we take it one step bigger.

                        Anyone with any ideas on moving forward please let me know.


                        Ricky


                        P.s. I thought about it , and im not retiring lol Roll on 2019 and a very interesting 2020

                          The Jack the Ripper Conference team 2018 are pleased to announce -



                          MICK PRIESTLEY:
                          Jack the Ripper and the night of the double event

                          www.crimeconference.com

                          Author Mick Priestley is regarded an as expert on serial killers and true crime and is the author Jack the Ripper : One Autumn In Whitechapel : The book that won the official Jack the Ripper book of the year award in 2017.

                          He has made numerous TV and radio appearances, appearing on CNN and CBS News in the States, and is a now regular expert on the internet show Murder With Friends, on the Young Turks News Network.

                          Mick is currently working on his new upcoming book - Active Shooter.

                          On the night of the 30th September 1888, both Elizabeth Stride and Catherine Eddowes were murdered, less than hour apart. This night became known as “The Double Event”.

                          Since then there has been debate as to wether or not they were killed by the same man known as Jack the Ripper..... or were their murders two unrelated and separate incidents?

                          130 years to the day since the murders of Stride and Eddowes, Mick Priestley will re-examine the evidence and provide an in-depth analysis of the crimes themselves. Using profiling and crime scene analysis, he will determine once and for all if both murders were indeed committed by the same man.

                          Join us at the Arbor hotel for the 130th anniversary conference in London’s East End this September.
