The Jack the Ripper Experience Jack the Ripper
(71)

Welcome to The Official 'Russell Edwards' Jack the Ripper Experience. The Jack the Ripper Experience with Russell Edwards, author of Naming Jack the Ripper. Jack the Ripper tours in Whitechapel. Book the official tour today. Using DNA evidence, Russell Edwards is able to conclusively name Jack the Ripper as Polish born Aaron Kosminski. The biggest murder mystery of all time has now been solved, thanks to DNA on a Victorian shawl and forensic science. In 2007, businessman Russell Edwards bought a Victorian shawl at an auction. The shawl was large – over 7 feet long, made of silk, obviously very old, and damaged, with pieces missing. The shawl had been taken by a policeman from the murder scene of Jack the Ripper’s fourth victim, Catherine Eddowes, on 30 September 1888. Since then, aside from a few years in Scotland Yard’s Black Museum, it had been safely stored away by the direct descendants of that policeman. In his book, Naming Jack the Ripper, Russell Edwards details the years of dedicated historical and scientific research that have gone into proving without doubt that Aaron Kosminski was Jack the Ripper.

The Mystery of the Ripper Part 1. January 1889. The Ripper has gone to ground!!! It’s been two months since he last visited these haunting and lonely streets of Whitechapel. Where has he gone?!?! The body of a man was found in Thames. He quickly became an official suspect. However, this murder mystery has developed a public thirst that couldn’t be quenched. So what happened to the Whitechapel Murderer?!?! 5 victims in 10 weeks!!! Then... nothing

1888. A month has passed since the Ripper’s 5th Murder!!! Has he vanished once and for all?!?! Less than 3 minutes walk from the 3rd Murder scene, a grisly discovery was made in a chilling little place. This depicts the depravity of the area at the time. A woman’s body was found with even worse atrocities!!! The Pinchin Street Torso Murder is one of the 11 Whitechapel Murders. Was it at the hands of the Ripper?!?! Only time would tell...

A huge thank you to Corrine Gretton-West who captured some very unique images of me re-tracing the steps of the legend: Jack the Ripper. The main image completely portrays the last 19 years of me walking these streets alone, working through very challenging times to conclusively name the man behind the legend...

14/11/2019

And just like that! He’s gone... The Ripper now leaves the streets of Whitechapel and enters into legend!!! Here’s one of the many hidden alleyways he could have disappeared...

8th November 1888. The Ripper pays a visit to the streets of Whitechapel for one last time. His final victim, Mary Jane Kelly, lived less than 100 yards from this location. Little did the 25 year old Irish girl know that this would be the last night she would walk these lonely, cold streets. Little did she know what He had in store for her. His rage has escalated. It has been 5 weeks since he claimed the lives of two women in one hour. His bloodlust has over spilled. Mary was his last, his pinnacle of insanity. Who was this madman?!?! Only time would tell...

It’s now been over 2 weeks since the Ripper claimed two victims inside one hour!!! Has he vanished?!?! On the 16th October 1888, the head of the Whitechapel Vigilance Committee, George Lusk receives a parcel covered with blood. It’s contents were gruesome beyond belief!!! Attached was a letter addressed: ‘From Hell’. This was the only letter not signed with the name: ‘Jack the Ripper’. Was this the one and only letter sent by the murderer himself?!?! What is next?!?! Only time will tell...

05/10/2019

The Ripper goes to ground!!! It’s been a week since he claims Two victims in one night. The only clue was a piece of chalk handwriting that was destroyed by the Police in error!!! The streets of the East End are gripped with fear. When would he strike next?!?! Who would be his next victim?!?! What is to happen next?!?! Here is one of those streets still preserved in time...

28/09/2019

The Double Event!!! 29th September 1888. The Ripper strikes twice inside one hour. The East End is in a panic. Who knows what will happen to the poor Unfortunates next?!?!

Annie Chapman was seen at the entrance of 29 Hanbury Street at approximately 5.30am. A little before 6am she is discovered in the back yard of this address by John Davis, one of the residents. The atrocities were worse than that of his first!!! A huge furore ensued. A serial killer was stalking the streets of Whitechapel. Who was to know that in just 3 weeks time he would claim his next two victims inside one hour?!?! Here is a glimpse of the scene today...

Mitre Square. 1888. This is the actual scene of where the Ripper’s 4th victim, Catherine Eddowes met with her gruesome fate. The 29th September 1888 is known as the ‘Night of the Double Event’. It was this night that Catherine and one other fell at his hands inside one hour!!! He left his first and only clue at this scene. Over a century later we managed to obtain DNA from this clue to conclusively name the man behind the legend of Jack the Ripper...
