Commercials for the History Channel documentary called "American Ripper" have begun airing over here. They feature a descendant of "H. H. Holmes" claiming he has worked out the truth about his great-uncle (I think it was, as I don't think Holmes had offspring) being Jack the Ripper.

I'm willing to give it a watch, having read and enjoyed "The Devil in the White City", but I think Holmes is a much better candidate for the Torso Killer than Jack. (More fame in the latter, I guess.)

Check your local schedule; I think the ads say it starts in June.
