Jack the Ripper revelation: Expert claims that infamous serial killer may have actually been a woman
The mystery behind who the famed killer is has been a topic of fierce debates for more than a century now and we are nowhere close to getting the answer
The story of one of the most infamous serial killers of all time, Jack the Ripper, has fascinated and terrified people all over the world. The mystery behind who the famed killer has been a topic of fierce debates for more than a century now and we are nowhere close to getting the answer to his identity.
The prime suspects of the original cases were a doctor, a bootmaker, and a royal as well. The London Dungeon, however, has announced that it was going to spend the summer this year delving into the mysterious identity of the serial killer and looking into the claims that Jack may have actually been "Jackie the Ripper", reports Dailystar.
The London Dungeon is a tourist attraction that is located on London's South Bank. The concept behind the attraction is that they recreate many gory and macabre events from history in what is known as a gallows style of humor. The attraction uses a mixture of live actors, special effects, and rides to keep the visitors on their toes the entire time.
John Morris, an expert and the author of the book "The Hand of a Woman", said that the idea behind a woman being the killer "should not be overlooked". He also claimed that the gruesome murders were all the work of an infertile by the name of Lizzie Williams. She was allegedly filled with so much anger because she couldn't have any children.
He said, "Four of the five Ripper victims had their uterus removed, with the fifth showing signs of an attempted removal. Lizzie Williams was unable to have children of her own, and it’s believed this spurned hatred towards prostitutes, who were able to become pregnant so easily."
"It is also widely believed that her husband was involved with the fifth victim, Mary Jane Kelly, which further encouraged her murderous intentions," he continued.
The general manager of The London Dungeon, Andrew Walker, said, "This theory makes you look at the Ripper story in a completely new way. This is definitely something we’d like to reflect within the attraction which is why we have taken our Jack the Ripper show and turned it on its head. I believe this will surprise and shock our audiences, just as much as this revelation shocks and surprises those with an interest in the Ripper story."
The Jackie the Ripper show will be spooking audiences at the Dungeon between August 12 and August 31.
