  • Did JTR Have a Family?

    Well, everyone has a family - like it or not. Certainly, JTR had a father and a mother, and likely aunts and uncles, cousins, nephews, nieces, etc. But did he have siblings? And did he have a wife and children? Due to the nature of the question, multiple answers are again allowed.

    I highly doubt he had any children at all. Just based one appears to be a pathological hatred of women. If he did, I honestly believe they would have arrived after the killings, and possibly much later on in his years.

      Was Jack a Family Man?

      Or did he merely think of himself as a good family man? If one of history's greatest monsters thought that he himself was, why not another?

        I voted - naturally - for the option that he was married with children, fully expecting to have joined up with an absolute minority.

        ... only to find out that I actually represent the majority, at least so far.

        Interesting.

          I can only imagine that most voters are going for the inconspicuous unknown unnoticed local family guy.

            Maybe so - but one should keep in mind that far from all serialists are the family type...

            Anyway, itīs a refreshing change from how the Met reasoned by the looks of things!

              I would say he was a loner in terms of his killing habits but not necessarily a loner in terms of how he lived. So I voted for the "NO - but he was living with a woman" option. Of course he could have been a family man, a churchgoer and a pillar of the community much like Dennis Rader. In either case, I believe that the man had nasty, private habits that no one else knew about except the victims just before their demise.

              Best regards

                Long time ago, I would have thought he was most likely to have been single....either living in a room by himself ( like a boarder ) or in the presence of people ( like a typical lodger in Crossingham's ).
                However, after a decade of reading about quite a few killers who had wives and sometimes living with children under the same roof....I'm not sure anymore.
                Tough choice.
