She was a prostitute, and she had been murdered.Over the following twelve months, five more naked victims were discovered as the Metropolitan Police realised that they had a serial killer on the loose.The press began to refer to the killer as Jack the Stripper, an obvious pun on the name of Londons most notorious prostitute killer. Then, as the body count rose, detectives were forced to delve ever deeper into London’s sleazy underworld of sex-for-sale, pornographic films and upper-crust sex parties.Finally, after the sixth death, Scotland Yard’s best and most experienced detective was brought in to lead the hunt in a desperate attempt to catch the Stripper.This 5,500-word review gives an insight into the Jack the Stripper murders, the investigation and possible suspects, both as a study in its own right and as a stepping-stone to further research into the true crime genre.Topics covered include:• Introduction• The Murders• The Investigation• Detective Chief Superintendent John Du Rose• Kenneth Archibald• Freddie Mills• Other SuspectsTrue Crimes Series:Armed RobberyJeremy Bamber – Slaughter at White House FarmLevi Bellfield – The Bus Stop StalkerDavid Berkowitz – The Son of SamTed Bundy – The College Girl KillerBuono and Bianchi – The Hillside StranglersJohn Christie – The 10 Rillington Place MurdersDale Cregan – Gangland EnforcerJeffrey Dahmer – The Milwaukee CannibalJoanna Dennehy – The ‘Man-Woman’ MurdererRuth Ellis – The Last Woman to be HangedKenneth Erskine – The Stockwell StranglerStephen Griffiths – The Crossbow CannibalAnthony Hardy – The Camden RipperJohn Haigh – The Acid Bath MurdersBrady and Hindley – The Moors MurderersColin Ireland – The Gay SlayerDonald Neilson – The Black PantherDennis Nilsen – The Muswell Hill MurdererHarold Shipman – Doctor DeathGeorge Joseph Smith – Brides in the BathPeter Sutcliffe – The Yorkshire RipperJohann ‘Jack’ Unterweger – International Serial KillerFred and Rose West – The House of HorrorsSteve Wight – The Suffolk StranglerAileen Wuornos – The Hitchhiker From HellAustralian Serial KillersCriminals Who Become KillersFemale Serial KillersKillers Who Kill Again In PrisonLesbian Serial KillersSpree KillersWhole Life SentencesWorld’s Worse Serial Killers
