Ripper suspect-Prince Albert Victor, grandson of Queen Victoria, has an alibi for several of the murder dates. Casebook.org shows that he was not in town on these dates:
August 31-Polly Nichols is murdered. Prince Albert was staying with Viscount Downe at Danby Lodge in Yorkshire from August 29-September 7.
September 8-Annie Chapman is murdered. Prince Albert was at the Calvary Barracks in York from September 7-10.
September 30-Elizabeth Stride and Catherine Eddowes are murdered. Prince Albert was in Abergeldie, Scotland from September 27-30. Queen Victoria happened to provide evidence when she recorded in her journal that she had lunch with him on September 30.
November 1-Prince Albert arrives in London from York.
November 9-Mary Kelly is murdered. Prince Albert was in Sandringham from November 2-12.
Prince Albert Victor, grandson of Queen Victoria, and Ripper suspect, was rumored to have been mentally retarded, partially as he was growing up. It is also said he was a “slow” child because he needed a tutor while he attended Cambridge.
None of these rumors have been proven but because of them, he was ridiculed, sort of like Michael Jackson was, when he was living.
I realize this is not Friday but bear with me while we get ready to move. I apologize for this post being a day late, anyway.
Ripper suspect, Prince Albert Victor was the grandson of Queen Victoria. A few rumors surround his involvement in the murders but casebook.org says that he did not become a suspect until 1962 when a book called Jack The Ripper: A to Z, was published.
According to one of my research books, Jack The Ripper: The Casebook, by Richard Jones, he contracted “syphilis of the brain” and went insane, consequently going on a rampage of the East End. His experience as a deer hunter would have given him the medical knowledge he needed; however, no hard evidence exists to support this or any theory that he was The Ripper.
