★ Jack the Ripper

77,654.  Whitechapel was the perfect killing ground.  Eight days later he struck again.  Forty seven year old Annie Chapman was also a prostitute.  She was last seen talking to an unidentified man at five thirty in the morning.  ibid.

 

77,655.  Ripperologists know 30th September 1888 as the Double Event.  At 1 a.m. a man found the body of another prostitute.  The killer had cut 44-year-old Elizabeth’s Stride’s throat but her body was not mutilated. Some investigators believe this is because the Ripper was disturbed and had to flee.  Marriott though is unconvinced.  ibid.

 

77,656.  Questions remain about the death of Stride.  ibid.

 

77,657.  According to the police report the Ripper could only have had about nine minutes to kill and mutilate Eddowes in almost total darkness ... The killer had slashed her face ... The Ripper has carved crosses and symbols into Eddowes’ face.  Like Chapman she had her uterus skilfully removed.  But Eddowes had another organ missing [kidney].  Marriott is uncertain how anyone could have done this in nine minutes in almost total darkness.  ibid.  

 

77,658.  He [Marriott] discovers there was a thriving trade in organs and body parts in the nineteenth century.  It would make sense if the organs were removed before the autopsy.  ibid.

77,665.  He cannot sleep.  He is just nervous all the time.  He is coming into a dark area and there are the prostitutes standing here and asking him a question.  Here comes the fantasy.  The stress.  And here is the victim and the opportunity.  He is taking out the knife.  Dr Thomas Mueller, Criminal Psychologist
