                      The Atlanta Constitution (Atlanta, Fulton, Georgia, United States of America) ยท 26 Nov 1914, Thu
                      Atlanta Journal[/I]
                      The first article is from the Georgian. The article mentions that a "Jack the Ripper" victim was found with her head crushed on October 26, 1914, near the Federal Prison.
                      The other two articles are from the Journal and Constitution respectively. Both articles mention the discovery of a third body in a ditch near the Federal prison.
                      One will note the differences between the articles. The Georgian only mentions that the first Federal Prison victim had her head crushed. The Journal states that the three victims either had their throat cut or bodies burnt. The Constitution claims that all three victims were burnt and gashed with a knife.

                        This article mentions the trial of a husband suspected of killing his wife, whom the state claims was a "Jack the Ripper" victim. Unfortunately, the article doesn't name the murdered woman nor does it give any details of her case. The article states that the woman had been murdered in June 1914, but I can't find any newspaper account of any"Jack the Ripper" victims slain in 1914 before July.

                          Having studied the Atlanta Ripper for several years now, I thought I read all the articles about his murders. But recently I came across an article about another Ripper slaying that I knew nothing about. One of the problems with studying the Ripper cases is that only the Atlanta Constitution is posted entirely online. After 1911, only parts of the Georgian are posted online and the Journal is not posted at all. All of the Journal articles and some of the Georgian articles I posted here I had to do using microfilm from the Atlanta History Center.

                          Another problem is the imperfections of the search engines. Often, when I'm dealing with newspapers online and I type in "Jack the Ripper" in the search box, they're supposed to pick up any article with these words in them, but often I've come across other articles that didn't appear when I typed in "Jack the Ripper" even though they had those words in their paragraphs.

                          This case is probably the saddest of the Ripper murders because this poor woman was desperate to save her life. How did this 40-year-old woman, manage to elude the Ripper, who was described as a very tall, well-built, muscular, for a mile, is a mystery to me. It's heartbreaking to know that she ran frantically for such a distance and yet couldn't find someone that could come to her assistance. This crime is like a horror film come to life. It's typical in a slasher movie to have a woman running from a deranged maniac in dense woods.
