  • How a Jack The Ripper copycat used a false moustache to get away with brutal murder

    A historian believes he has solved the gruesome 124-year-old murder of a barmaid on a London train.

    After studying the evidence for a decade, Dr Jan Bondeson believes he has proof a 33-year-old barmaid was killed by a Jack the Ripper copycat who had purchased a false moustache to avoid identification.

    How is this a Ripper copycat? The only things it has in common with the Ripper killings is the victim was a woman and the killer was never caught.

      Because a book of post ripper killings isn't all that appealing, and a publisher might push for a ripper angle, to sell copies and generate news stories like the afore linked.
      The 'ripper' reference is in relation to a specific quote in one of the many cases. Anyone for tenuous?
