Jack the Ripper’s true identity has been ‘unmasked’ after a shocking police discovery

Jack the Ripper’s true identity: The age-old case for cracking Jack the Ripper’s identity has taken a step forward with the most unexpected turn of events.

Potentially, the face of the now ancient and still unknown serial killer has been revealed.

The unknown killer killed at least five women in London’s East End in 1888 – known as the “Traditional Five” among amateur nephrologists who work on the case to this day. These women were Elizabeth Stride, Mary Jane Kelly, Mary Ann Nichols, Annie Chapman, and Catherine Edwards.

The killer was never caught, and his identity remains a mystery – but we may now know what they looked like thanks to a facial composite, which included someone who was working on the original Ripper case at the time.
Metropolitan Police Chief Inspector Frederick Aberlein had the only composite of the suspected killer’s face – and when he picked up the Ripper case, he decided to turn that face into a cane.

Jack the Ripper is one of the biggest and most infamous murder cases in the country’s history, and his crimes were instrumental in paving the way for modern policing and forensics, as they began testing and developing new techniques in their efforts to solve them. These murders, such as crime scene preservation, profiling, and photography.

The cane has given a new direction to amateur detectives still studying the case, including one of Aberlein’s fellow descendants, Harry Garrett.
Sarah Box Horton used medical records and witness descriptions to uncover the killer’s identity and pointed the finger at one Hyam Hyams.

Whoever he was, the Ripper became famous for the vicious nature of “his” murders, as well as the terrifying letters “he” allegedly left for Scotland Yard detectives, which incited newspapers to create hysteria in Victorian London. Unfortunately, this status cemented Jack as a legend and took the attention of many victims.
