Jack the Ripper identified (again)

Published on October 5th, 2009 | by Admin


Yet another historian is claiming to have identified Jack the Ripper (adding to a list of over 100 suspects); this time someone named Robert Mann, who was a morgue attendant in Whitechapel at the time.

The portrait drawn up of Jack was as a white male from the lower social classes, most likely the product of a broken home.

It was also thought he would have had a menial job but with some anatomical knowledge, something like a butcher, mortuary or medical examiner’s assistant or hospital attendant.

Because of prolonged periods without human interaction, Jack would also have been socially inept

It is known that Mann was from an extremely deprived background. His father was absent for much of his upbringing and he had spent some time as a child in a workhouse.
