New claims Jack the Ripper was noted poet who studied as a priest in the North East
Not sure it this is already being discussed on Casebook. But:
A new book makes the explosive claim that Jack the Ripper was the poet Francis Thompson, who studied as a priest in County Durham.
Patterson’s book, which has been published by Austin and Macauley, is the result of 20 years of research, in which he travelled around the world gathering information to show Thompson was a serial killer.
