“SIX CHILLING THEORIES ABOUT JACK THE RIPPER” and 7 More Terrifyingly True Stories! #WeirdDarkness

It’s been nearly 130 years since the mutilated corpses of five women, all prostitutes, were discovered in London’s Whitechapel district. Due to the brutal condition of the victims—slashed, and in some cases, ripped wide open with major organs removed—the police called their suspect a “ripper.” And with that, the world’s most notorious serial killer was born.  The case of Jack the Ripper has torn its way through popular culture, inspiring everything from the stories of Sherlock Holmes to Hannibal Lecter. Historians and true crime writers alike have offered their theories as to the identity of the Ripper, assembling a suspect list of over 100 names. Yet the question remains: Just who was the man (or woman) behind the Jack The Ripper crimes?
