  • Who Was Jack The Ripper ? (H Division, 2019)




    AVAILABLE TO PRE-ORDER NOW

    WHO WAS JACK THE RIPPER ?
    All the suspects revealed.

    By H Division Crime Club
    https://www.pen-and-sword.co.uk/Who-...rdback/p/16404

    ———————————————

    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.

    This book 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.

    Thanks How

    Im very proud to have brought this project to life by working with some of the best names in the field today. Reading through the contributors its plain to see this is a book for 21st century Ripperology.


    This is only the first in a long line of book projects from H Division and there is talk about a documentary, so exciting times for the field.


    Hand on heart i can honestly state this will be the best suspect research book to have came out in the last 25 years. It’s fitting the book is being published by the number one publisher of true crime in the UK, Pen and Sword.


    On a rather sad note, the book also contains Martin Fido’s final research.


    I hope everyone enjoys this project and if anyone wants to get involved in future work by H Division, my door is always open.


    Many thanks

      Looks good. When is it available in the U.S.?

        Pen and Sword are releasing the book first and then i will be selling them through my business, so we will make it available to all. I’ll keep you upto date with whats happening in America.

        There should be another H Division book out next year which will focus on the police investigation into the Whitechapel murders, just in time for Jack the Ripper conference 2020, so keep your eyes out for it.


        Thanks

          Nobody knows why the murders stopped and for decades rumours have been circulated that the killer must have died, or committed suicide.

          Perhaps his family locked him away in an asylum or maybe he left the country to pursue his bloodlust somewhere else.

          One thing that is for certain, along with the other killer(s) involved in the Whitechapel murders, his true identity has never been ascertained.

          The Ripper case is best described as a great whodunit novel with the back page ripped out. For the last 130 years, generations of armchair detectives, historians and researchers have attempted to fill in that page with their preferred choice of suspect.

          As early as the second of the canonical five murders, the game of hunt the Ripper had begun. Local residents of the area were focused on a shadowy character that went by the nickname ‘Leather Apron’.

          Butchers, doctors and slaughtermen would follow, each taking their place as the new hot favourite to be the killer.

          The police at the time put forward their own theories as to who the killer may have been. Some, namely Sir Robert Anderson, who was assistant commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, went so far as to say the killer was identified but could not be prosecuted.

          Other senior detectives suggested the killer may have fled the country or drowned in the Thames. Some just maintained the killer was never caught. It seems they all had their own story to tell.

          By the 1970s the Ripper’s story had moved out of the East End, climbed the social ladder and was now dining with royalty or perhaps drawing some grand pieces of art. As the years progressed he was even writing classic novels such as Alice in Wonderland.

          He seemed to be moving further and further away from where the crimes happened.
          So maybe now, after 130 years, it’s time we brought the Ripper back home.

          Let us return to the crime scene and strip down the Ripperology beast to the basic origins of the investigation. From here, let us look at the suspects that present themselves to us and ask some very important questions.

          If the murders happened today, who would the police consider a person of interest?

          With this in mind, we have taken two key principles of the investigation. Who did the police seriously suspect and who was in the immediate area at the time?

          These are the questions all modern researchers should be asking and we hope this book will help you find the answers.

                I stifled a wry smile when I read the review by the lady who said her initial instinct was to distrust articles written by persons from a non-academic background...guess who did sociology or media studies?

                    Surely not this man, unless he has an angle on Druitt?

                      A faint bell rung in my head that Keith Stride was a relative of Liz Stride based in Australia. After a bit of a search, it turns out I wasn't far out, but I was actually thinking of Barbara and Ken Stride from New Zealand. (Barbie and Ken... who'd a thunk it?)

                        There's a paper by David Canter citing a certain Keith Stride who posits Mary Kelly's lover (Barnett? Fleming? Morganstone?) as JTR. While he doesn't give further details on his source, you can read Canter's paper here:

                          That's probably the one, then. Can't find him on the net.

                            He’s referencing “Keith Stride” here since this is Canter sharing his introduction to this very book.
