This site will feature Bible-based articles some days, silly posts and quotes at least twice a week and facts about Jack the Ripper-to begin with.

The day that probable victim, Elizabeth Stride was murdered, Dr. Barnardo visited the lodging house where she lived. He had taken to street preaching and talked to the women and girls about saving the children from common lodging houses and the street. He said that the girls and women were, “thoroughly frightened” and one woman mentioned how no one cared about a prostitute’s safety.
Upon seeing Elizabeth Stride’s body, he immediately recognized her as one of the women from the lodging house, earlier that day.

  1. Who was Jack the ripper ????? Have they ever figured that out – somebody said it was the queens doctor ???

    • Thanks for your question, Viveka. The thing about the Ripper is that mystery surrounds the identity of him. The files on the Ripper are sealed until the year 2030. My suspect is James Kelly, a man who escaped from an in insane asylum months before the killings began.
      I know who you are talking about, though. Queen Victoria’s grandson is a suspect and casebook.org says that he did not become a suspect until the 1960’s, when someone wrote a book about why he thinks he did it.
      Just for you, I will post some facts about this suspect and why he is suspected of being the Ripper. 🙂

    • Hey, Viveka, Terry told me that there is a theory about the Ripper being the queen’s doctor. I don’t know anything about it and need to look it up. I’ll let you know what I find.
