Jack The Ripper - New Article

There's a new article from me at Mysterious Universe that starts as follows...

In the latter part of 1888, a deadly figure roamed the shadowy and foggy back-streets of Whitechapel, London, England by night. He violently slaughtered prostitutes, provoking terror throughout the entire capital. He quickly became – and still remains to this very day – the world’s most notorious serial-killer. He was, in case you haven’t by now guessed, Jack the Ripper. But, what makes the Ripper so infamous, more than a century after his terrible crimes were committed, is that his identity still remains a mystery. And everyone loves a mystery. So, who might Jack have been? The theories are almost endless. Indeed, more than thirty potential suspects have been suggested. They include a surgeon, a doctor, a poet, and even a midwife.

Without doubt, the most controversial theory for whom, exactly, Jack the Ripper might have been, is that he was a member of the British Royal Family (an outdated, irrelevant entity that should be abolished, in my opinion). The suspect: Prince Albert Victor, the Duke of Clarence. It is, however, a claim that has no basis in fact.

And here's the link...
