On This Day



On This Day… The Ripper’s Double Murder

Written by: George Chittenden : 05 Jun 2019

It was on this day, 30th Sept, back in 1888 when history’s most famous unidentified serial killer, Jack the Ripper, killed his third and fourth victims. It was the only time that the Ripper committed two murders in one single night making it the worst night during the Ripper’s reign of terror, and the incident is often referred to as the “double event”.

The poor victims were Elizabeth Stride and Catherine Eddowes. Many believe that his first victim that night, Elizabeth Stride’s murder remains unique as unlike the other victims she lacked abdominal injuries in addition to the signature slash across the neck, and that the Ripper may have been interrupted before heshe had the opportunity to mutilate the body.

The second victim on that terrible night had her run in with the Ripper less than an hour later. Her murder does not seem to have been interrupted as her body was mutilated after her death, and her kidney was removed. So, who was Jack the Ripper? What are your thoughts? Here at ‘The History Project’ we’d love to hear them in the comments below.
