    Has anyone read Jeffrey Wells' book ( 2011) The Atlanta Ripper ?

    Terror In Atlanta's Whitechapel

    One could get the impression that some of the victims may not have been prostitutes ( end of article ).

    Could you show me a link to that thread? I don't see it on the board.
    I am very interested in joining it.

    I chose this series....although the action or pattern was in some ways dissimilar to the Ripper case...where we find a murder ( Tabram's) 24 days before another....8 days after that....21 days later...and then 40 days later.

    The Atlanta murders were occurring every Saturday like clock work, and although Atlanta is considered the "capital of the South" and is and was a major US city...it was nowhere near London in terms of population...yet this fiend was like a machine....unstoppable.
    The negro Jack the Ripper was certainty more brutal than the British one. The British one never crushed the heads of his victims, they weren't in pain when they died. Whereas the Atlanta ripper smashed the heads, stabbed and sliced most of his victims.
    The British one was content with 5-7 victims. The Atlanta ine seemed to have stopped at 30.
