The Whitechapel Mystery
During the time of Jack the Ripper there was another killer operating within London who largely went ignored.
In Victorian London, in 1888, a killer was walking amongst the locals. However, this is not the serial killer who you are thinking of. Jack the Ripper is one of two killers who operated in London simultaneously.
If history is to be believed, this second killer did not get the publicity that The Ripper did; known as the torso killer, his murder has largely been ignored by many, although he was no less vicious.
This is the story of the Whitechapel Mystery. A killer who hunted in the shadows like his famous peer and mocked the police. Some will say this is the story of the same killer, that the murder was never accredited to The Ripper but should have been. You decide.
Remains are Found
On 11th September 1888, a right arm and shoulder were retrieved from The Thames in Pimlico. The remains were taken to the local police station, but with little else to go on and a much bigger killer emerging, they were largely ignored. It is clear that this angered the murderer, so he took action.
