  • Richard Chase

    I'd be interested to know what you all thought of Richard Chase, and any possible similarities with our Jack as far as character and post mortem mutilation goes.

    Chase was a disorganized killer. In at least one murder, he mutilated the victim post-mortem in a fashion very similar to the Ripper's victims (especially similar to Mary Kelly):

    His wife lay just inside the door, on her back. Her sweater was pulled up over her breasts and her pants and underwear down around her ankles. Her knees were splayed open in the position of a sexual assault. Her left nipple was carved off, her torso cut open below the sternum, and her spleen and intestines pulled out. Chase had stabbed her repeatedly in the lung, liver, diaphragm, and left breast. He also had cut out her kidneys and severed her pancreas in two. He placed the kidneys together back inside her.
