The serial killer that tore through the lives of 5 women, forced the Home Secretary and the London Police Commissioner of the era to resign and spawned hundreds of books, articles, theories, movies and what not, the most famous serial killer of all times. The year was 1888, the place: London, the suspects: everyone from a Mason to a member of the Royal Family. However, the most likely suspects are the usual run-of-the-mill psychos: an insane barrister with knowledge of human anatomy; a murderous barber and a regular neighbourhood John. Nineteenth century London was a feast. Kidney pie, anyone?
