  • Jack The Stripper

    hi all,

    was reading through a compendium style book recently. Has anyone any info on good/worthwhile books on JtS (if any have been written)?

    cheers!

    Hi LJ,

    You could try 'Jack of Jumps' by David Seabrook and 'Found Naked and Dead' by Brian McConnell.

          Yes Neil had an interesting theory linking a known serial killer to the case...

          But I'm not certain if his Stripper book has been released yet...

          I've been busy with JtR for the last year..

          Neil does show up and post here and on casebook from timer to time...

          Yours Jeff

            The "Found naked and dead" book is a good one, I read it as a teenager.

              Yes But treat it with caution..

              I wish we had McCormacks research?

              Some of it turned out good and I found Hannah's family from the New Castle information...but its sketchy..I never found a confirmation for the photography information (though interesting)

              Most of McCormack's research was from fleet street reporters.

              And despite Seabrook having access to the records at Hendon he never actually had permission from the police and I think we should be cautious that he had everything at his figure tips?

              As far as I'm aware Mungo Irelands wife moved shortly after the publication of Seabrook's book which names him as McCormacks 'big JOHN' (security guard). And that she is still alive and living with the daughter.

              So carefull what everyone says

                    It will be interesting to see whether Neil has at last connected Jones to Mungo Ireland and the eledged brothel run by Ireland's wife in the same street in Putney..without predudice of course.

                      Hi Jeff,

                      Ah, so the plot thickens. It looks like Neil Milkins has done some superb research. For those who haven't checked out the link I posted in post #9 here, it leads to a major article with a dozen interesting photos of all the known victims and the new suspect.

                        Yes I think what Neil has tried to do is create a link between Jones and Ireland which is far more interesting as it might explain why the bodies where in a lock-up accessed by Ireland but how a body was moved while Ireland was in Scotland.

                        Tailford was known to be involved in 35mm films and parties. So if it could be established that a brothel was run in the area where Jones and Ireland lived it might connect the victims as well.

                        All conjecture of course without access to the files

                        But surely its about time the children of the victims were given the truth about what happened and Irelands true connections.

                          35 mm movies? That's pretty high class. Is there a picture of Ireland?

                              Thanks Jeff. Were they full porn "stag movies" or what they used to call "nudies"?

                              Before the VCR when a lot of people had soundless 8 mm projectors in their residences, there was a pretty lucrative business selling movies to be shown in the home. These were basically in two categories, old silent movies and pornos.
