    Now I understand that this aspect, the age of Jack the Ripper, is only guessed. Yet, we have a murder spree, with, in my mind six murders, the first is Martha Tabram. She dies in an unusual circumstance, now after this the killer finds his "niche", so to speak, and kills in a patternistic fashion thereafter.

    In my mind, and in the eyes of the profiler, this points his age in being around 20. The serial lust-murderer is usually over the age of 20, being that the youngest group of serial offenders are serial rapists, which range in their lower 20's, I believe Jack the Ripper to be in his late 20's early 30's.

    Anyhow, what do you all think?

    Hello all

    The rather facile general acceptance that Tabram was Jack's first victim always strikes me as wrong. He commits that murder and then shortly afterward a series of murders that were each of them completely different to the Tabram crime. It just doesn't compute.

      I agree with Chris here.

      As for age - even profilers can't do more than offer a wide range in many cases. 25-35 seems to be a good average, but by no means certain.
