At 3:15 a passerby named Charles Cross found the body of Mary Ann Nichols on the Buck’s Row walkway.  He left to inform the police.  In his absence Constable John Neil came upon the body.  It had not been there during his last walk by one- half hour earlier.  That fact coupled with there being very little blood at the scene lent the police to deduce the body was transported there after the murder.

Mary Ann Nichols was pronounced dead by Dr. Llewellyn who took her body to the mortuary.  Her throat had been cut as had been her abdomen.  Inquiries at the murder site offered no clues to the murder.

Dr. Phillips pronounced Anne Chapman dead and took her to the mortuary. His notes included a lot of information that never made it into police records.

The following are the clues that were overlooked or ignored:

Ø   A piece of muslin fabric, a comb and a paper case were left by the body

Ø   Two rings from Anne’s fingers, some pennies and two new farthings were left at the foot  of the body

Ø   An envelope and a piece of paper containing two pills were at the head of the body

         On the back of the envelope was the seal of the Sussex Military Regiment

         On the front of the envelope was a letter “M” and a postage stamp

Ø   A leather apron soaked with water was found near a faucet two feet away

         Some accounts have it as a partial apron

Though the apron was, for a while, considered a viable clue, all other items were discounted despite their being carefully arranged around Anne’s slain body.

The Evening News reported Elizabeth Stride also had grapes in her right hand claiming a man seen with Stride earlier had purchased grapes from a local vendor.  Even though police reports stated two private detectives found grape stems in the debris swept from the site of the murder, the clue was dismissed as unimportant.    (It is thought grapes were quite expensive during that time period and an unfortunate would not have access to them unless a wealthy person were to provide them)

 It has long been assumed Catherine Eddowes’ body was placed at Mitre Square after the murder and mutilation was performed in an empty building nearby.  This conclusion was drawn from the report that at 2:55 a.m. a constable found a blood-stained apron next to a wall where the phrase “The JUWES are not the men That Will be Blamed for nothing” had been written in chalk.  Nothing of import was derived from the phrase, but the apron and the removal of the kidney  led Drs Brown and Phillips to suggest Jack the Ripper may have been “a hunter, a butcher, a student in surgery or a properly qualified surgeon”.

Victim #5 Mary Kelly Body Found November 9, 1888

 Mary Kelly met her end in her own room at the 16 Dorset Street boardinghouse, No. 13.  True to form, her throat had been sliced open, her body mutilated.  In a strange twist, some skin had been removed from her legs.

Suspects

Suspects were numerous. Some were considered suspects totally due to general speculation, others because of descriptions, locations or occupations.

A popular theory named Queen Victoria’s grandson who was known as Eddy. From there it was then suspected Eddy’s friend and tutor committed the murders hoping Eddy would be blamed. The next link to Eddy was Dr. William Gull. Some theorized Dr. Gull killed women so they could not be connected to immoral liaisons with Eddy. His wife, however, claimed Dr. Gull was given to sporadic “manias for inflicting pain” and she had no idea where he’d been on the nights of each murder.

Coincidentally, another suspect, Montague John Driutt, who was rumored to have law offices and had been know to rent rooms in the Whitechapel area, bore an astonishing resemblance to the grandson of Queen Victoria, the notorious Eddy. Druitt took his own life in 1888; after which no further Jack the Ripper killings were reported.

In spite of more than a century of research, investigation and being the subject of numerous books and films, Jack the Ripper and his five victims remain a most ugly part of the Whitechapel/London history as the most infamous cold case in Scotland Yard’s files.

JACK THE RIPPER TIMELINE
THE CHRONOLOGY OF THE WHITECHAPEL MURDERS
THE ORDER OF THE JACK THE RIPPER MURDERS


    3rd of April 1888. A local gang attack Emma Smith, a local prostitute, on the junction of Osborn Street and Brick Lane. Although she definitely was not a victim of Jack the Ripper she is the first name on the Whitechapel Murders file that later included the murders by Jack the Ripper.
    4th April 1888 Emma Smith dies from the injuries she sustained in the attack. Read more about Emma Smith.
    7th June 1888. Detective Sergeant William Thicke testifies in court against local burglar George Neighbour. Later that year Thicke will play a major role in the hunt for Jack the Ripper. However, his testimony on this occasion is of interest because it illustrates the harsh realities of policing the district where the murders took place. Read more
    7 August 1888 another prostitute Martha Turner is found stabbed to death on a landing of George Yard Buildings.
    31 August 1888 the body of Mary Anne Nichols, who is commonly held to be Jack the Ripper's first victim, is found at 3.40am in Buck's Row Whitechapel
    1st-4th September. The police begin questioning the neighbourhood's prostitutes. They learn bout a character who the prostitutes have nicknamed Leather Apron who has been extorting money from them for the past 12 months.
    5th September. The Star newspaper publishes a write-up on Leather Apron, which causes the first murmurs of anti-Semitism in the district.
    8 September 1888. The second Jack the Ripper victim, Annie Chapman, was found in the back yard of 29 Hanbury Street.
    10 September 1888. Mr George Lusk, together with several other local business men, founds the Mile End Vigilance Committee, hoping to assist the police with their endeavours to catch the murderer.
    10 September 1888. John Pizer, whom Sergeant Thick maintains is recognized as "Leather Apron," is arrested. He can provide alibis for the two recent murders and is released.
    27 September 1888. A missive addressed to ‘Dear Boss” arrives at the Central News Agency. It is signed JACK THE RIPPER, a name which will turn the unknown miscreant into a world famous legend.
    30 September 1888. The killer commits two murders in under 1 hour. At 1am the body of Elizabeth Stride’s is found in Berner Street, off Commercial Road; then at 1:45am the body of Catherine Eddowes is discovered in Mitre Square in the City of London. This means that another Police force, the City Police, now join into the search for Jack the Ripper.
    1st October 1888. The police make the Jack the Ripper letter public.
    6th October 1888. The Central News Agency receive another letter that is signed Jack the Ripper. The police ask them not make this missive public.
    16 October 1888 . Mr George Lusk receives a letter that is addressed "FROM HELL." It contains half a kidney. There is press speculation that it belonged to Catherine Eddowes.
    9th November 1888. 25 year Old Mary Kelly is found dead in Dorset Street Spitalfields. She is believed by many to have been Jack the Ripper's last victim.
    20th December 1888. 29 year old Rose Mylett (also known as Catherine Millett and Lizzie Davis), 29, was found strangled in Clarke's Yard, off Poplar High Street. Despite the fact that several doctors who examined her body gave it as their opinion that she had been strangled, Robert Anderson was convinced that she had accidentally hanged herself on the collar of her dress whilst drunk. Dr Thomas Bond was, therefore, asked to examine her body and he agreed with Anderson. However, the jury at her subsequent inquest disagreed and returned a verdict of "wilful murder against some person or persons unknown". Her death was, therefore, added to the Whitechapel Murders file
    17th 1889. The body of Alice McKenzie is found in Castle Alley, off Whitechapel High Street. Despite the fact that her injuries were less savage than those inflicted on previous victims, several detectives believed her to have been a victim of Jack the Ripper.
    10th September 1888. The mutilated torso of an unknown woman was found beneath a railway arch in Pinchin Street. Although the press at the time noted that the torso bore similar mutilations to those inflicted on his victims by Jack the Ripper, the consensus amongst experts is that this was probably not a ripper killing.
    13th February 1891. The body of Frances Coles is found beneath a railway arch in Swallow Gardens. St the time there was much speculation that her killing spelt a return for the ripper. A sailor named James Thomas Sadler was arrested, charged and later acquitted of her murder. Today she is not believed to have been a Jack the Ripper victim.
