Jack the Ripper
Between 1888 and 1891, eleven prostitutes were brutally murdered in the Whitechapel district of London. At least five of them have been credited to the serial killer who came to be known as Jack the Ripper. The killer went about his bloody business with exceptional cruelty, cutting out organs of his victims with surgical precision.
According to a DNA test conducted on a scarf found beside one of the victims, the killer was a certain Aaron Kosminski, a Polish immigrant living in Whitechapel who worked as a barber. The real identity of Jack the Ripper, however, will most likely remain shrouded in mystery forever.
