In the autumn of 1888 a brutal 2 walked the dark, foggy streets of London, terrorizing the inhabitants of the city.

The victims were all women, and the police seemed powerless to stop the murders. There were no witnesses to the crimes - so the police had no idea what the murderer looked like. Panic and fear among Londoners was increased by a letter sent to Scotland Yard by the murderer. In the letter he made fun of the police's attempts to catch him and promised to kill again. It finished 'Yours truly, Jack the Ripper'. This was the first of many letters sent to the police. The murders continued - seven in total. But in November they suddenly stopped, three months after they had first begun.

Jack the Ripper was never caught and for more than a century historians, writers, and detectives have examined the evidence and tried to discover and prove his identity. Hundreds of articles and books have been written and many films made about the murders. But the question, 'Who was Jack the Ripper?'has remained unanswered. There have been plenty of suspects, including a doctor, a businessman, a painter, and even a member of a royal family.

The American crime writer Patricia Cornwell tried to solve the real-life murder mystery of Jack the Ripper. After spending a considerable amount of time and money on her investigation, and analysing DNA samples, Cornwell thought she had proved who Jack the Ripper really was. However, other experts disagree with her, and a new theory has recently been put forward.
