The Whitechapel murders
were assign in the impoverished Whitechapel area in the East End of London between 3 April 1888 and 13 February 1891. At various points some or all of these eleven unclear murders of women have been ascribed to the notorious faceless serial killer known as Jack the Ripper. Most of the victims Martha Tabram, Mary Ann Nichols, Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Catherine Eddowes, Mary Jane Kelly, Rose Mylett, Alice McKenzie, Frances Coles, and two unidentified Torsos were poor prostitutes with a alcoholic problem. Tabram was stabbed 39 times. Nichols, Chapman, Stride, Eddowes, Kelly, McKenzie and Coles had their throats cut. Eddowes and Stride were killed on the same night, 45 minutes and 0,75 a mile apart; their murders were named the "double event", after a phrase in a postcard sent to the press by someone claim to be the Ripper. The bodies of Nichols, Chapman, Eddowes and Kelly had abdominal mutilations and the Clothes where disarranged. Rose Mylett was strangled. The body of the unidentified woman was dismembered, but the exact cause of her death is unclear. The Metropolitan Police, City of London Police, and private organizations such as the Whitechapel Vigilance Committee were involved in the search for the killer but sure killers. Despite extensive inquiries and several arrests, the culprit or culprits evaded identification and capture. The murders draw the public attention to the living conditions of the Poor Class in the London East End slums, which were subsequently improved.
