The criminal trial of Mrs Florence Maybrick, held in Liverpool, England during the height of the British Empire 1889, is widely regarded as one of the greatest travesties of justice in British legal history. Mrs Maybrick was tried for murdering her husband via arsenic poisoning. However, the trial became a morality trial when the learned judge, Mr Justice James Fitzjames Stephen, linked Mrs Maybrick's demonstrated adultery to her alleged desire to physically remove her husband by administering poison. The jury, which pronounced a guilty verdict, consisted of twelve untrained and unschooled men who were unable to grasp the technical evidence and were probably unduly influenced by the judge's summing-up and by the professional status of one of the medical witnesses for the prosecution. The case is a timely reminder today for an international audience of the fallibility and inherent weaknesses of the legal system and the desperate need to retain Courts of Criminal Appeal within the courts system.

In the autumn of 1888, a serial killer known as Jack the Ripper stalked the East End of London. He was never identified, but hundreds of people were accused. Some were known to the authorities at the time, and others were named by later researchers. The truth about them, and the reasons why they came under suspicion, is often lost in a plethora of opinions and misinformation. For the first time, this book presents the evidence against 333 suspects. They include the publican who painted his dog, the first woman sentenced to the electric chair, the writer of the Red Flag, the man with a thousand convictions, Britain’s oldest Prime Minister, and many others. People from all walks of nineteenth century life, representing many different nationalities and professions. United by a link, however tenuous, to the most famous murderer in history.

There have been dozens of books and theories about the identity of Jack the Ripper, but not one like this. They have all been dismissed through lack of credible evidence. James Maybrick was a strong suspect, because of a diary, allegedly written by him, which turned up at the home of a working class Liverpool family in 1950. It was dismissed as a hoax, partly because the Hitler Diaries proved to be a hoax. The detractors also stated that the ink was not manufactured before 1920 (later to be shown as incorrect). Also, the handwriting on Maybrick’s will was different to the handwriting in the diary. My research shows that Maybrick did not write the will that was presented by his brothers Michael and Edwin Maybrick, the main benefactors. There was no apparent connection between the households of wealthy businessman Maybrick, living in a luxury mansion in its own grounds, with five servants and a terraced working class home in Liverpool, where the diary emerged. My task was to show beyond reasonable doubt that the diary had travelled from Maybrick’s luxury home to that of the Graham family. I managed to find not one, but two direct routes. No other researcher has found this connection, but my expertise in Family Research has been honed over the past 40 years and has been recognised by Her Majesty’s archivist, English Heritage, Sunday Mirror and all the major TV companies. There cannot now be the slightest doubt that James Maybrick was the author of the Ripper Diary. My research clearly shows this connection.

"Ripper Notes: America Looks at Jack the Ripper" is a collection of essays about the notorious Whitechapel serial killer and related topics. It leads of with a newly discovered and never before republished 1892 interview with Assistant Commissioner Robert Anderson of Scotland Yard. Anderson was a very important figure in the investigations, and made statements later in life that the killer had been identified and put into an asylum. This article is accompanied by a short analysis showing why that is unlikely. Wolf Vanderlinden then gives an in-depth look at the suspects in the 1891 death of prostitute Carrie Brown in New York City, a case long connected by many to the earlier string of Ripper killings in the East End of London. This is followed by coverage of the 2004 U.S. Ripper Conference, including essays by John Hacker ("Jack the Ripper and Technology: Ripperology in the Twenty-First Century") and Stan Russo ("The Strange Case of Dr. Hewitt," which questions why some suspects are treated more seriously than they probably should be) adapted from their presentations there. A number of shorter pieces by various authors follows. Ripper Notes is a nonfiction anthology series covering all aspects of the Jack the Ripper murder case.

"Ripper Notes: Death in London's East End" is a collection of essays about the famous unidentified serial killer Jack the Ripper and related topics. Jennifer Pegg starts things off by documenting some of the major errors and discrepancies in the book "Uncle Jack" by Tony Williams and Humphrey Price, including a Victorian era document which appears to have been altered to try to implicate their suspect. Wolf Vanderlinden explores whether Inspector Walter Andrews of Scotland Yard really did go to America to chase Dr. Francis Tumblety in connection with the Whitechapel murders or if he was actually there to try to collect evidence for the Parnell Commission, which was trying link Irish leader Charles Parnell with terrorists. Robert Clack follows with a comprehensive look into the 1901 murder of prostitute Mary Ann Austin in the same lodging house that Ripper victim Annie Chapman was kicked out of 13 years earlier; this essay includes copious police reports, inquest testimony, a number of period illustrations and a suspect who may be linked to the earlier killings. Don Souden then debunks a number of tall tales that grew up around the case, including the ideas that victim Mary Kelly had a son living with her and that Catherine Eddowes knew who the Ripper was. Bernard Brown comes next with a short piece on a man called Inspector Death who worked in the East End. Andrew J. Spallek closes the main section by providing readers with directions on finding the burial sites of Jack the Ripper's victims. In addition, there is a look at some other possible victims of the killer, coverage of the 2006 Ripper conference, book reviews, news briefs and more. Ripper Notes is a nonfiction anthology series covering all aspects of the Jack the Ripper case.

No-one in the annals of crime is capable of arousing such passionate debate as the perpetrator of the Whitechapel Murders in 1888. Was he a demented royal, a Masonic assassin, a misogynist don, a member of the czarist secret police or even an escaped gorilla? Over 100 years have passed since the unknown Ripper murdered East End prostitutes without detection, despite an enlarged and watchful police presence. Includes an introductory essay, a summary of the Ripper's crimes, victims and the ill-fated investigation and thorough consideration of proposed identities.

Bringing together ground-breaking forensic discoveries - including vital DNA evidence - and gripping historical detective work, Naming Jack the Ripper constructs the first truly convincing case for identifying the world's most notorious serial killer. In 2007, businessman Russell Edwards bought a shawl believed to have been left beside the body of the fourth victim, Catherine Eddowes. He knew that, if genuine, the shawl would be the only piece of crime scene evidence still in existence. It was the start of an extraordinary seven-year quest for Russell as he sought to authenticate the shawl and learn its secrets. He had no idea that this journey would take him so far. After undergoing extensive forensic testing by one of the country's top scientists, the shawl was not only shown to be genuine, and stained with Catherine Eddowes' blood, but in a massive breakthrough the killer's DNA was also discovered - DNA that would allow Russell to finally put a name to Jack the Ripper . . .

In these timeless and witty essays George Orwell explores the English love of reading about a good murder in the papers (and laments the passing of the heyday of the 'perfect' murder involving class, sex and poisoning), as well as unfolding his trenchant views on everything from boys' weeklies to naughty seaside postcards. Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves - and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives - and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.

Publisher: Pneuma Springs Publishing
Over a century ago a series of shocking mutilation murders took place in a squalid, overcrowded district of Victorian London. Five women fell victim to a man driven by rage and violent fantasy. The newspapers of the day gave him a chilling nickname, a name that evokes images of gas-lit foggy streets and a top-hatted sinister figure carrying a Gladstone bag. From the outset, the murderer attained almost mythical status merely by virtue of his name and his uncanny ability to avoid detection. The legend of Jack the Ripper was born. Peter Hodgson’s detailed and entertaining overview of Ripper lore in fact, film and fiction analyses the fiend’s awesome legacy. He explores the institutions and the individuals: the Jewish community and their rituals with meat, the scandal-prone royal family, the Victorian police and their simplistic methods of investigation, the streetwalkers and their trade. This book compares the fiction with the reality of those ghastly events, and clearly shows how the real killer has been transformed into a creature of the mind–the ‘other’ Jack the Ripper. Examination of the victims’ mutilations reveals the true nature of ‘Jack’s’ grotesque fantasies. This aspect–coupled with his elementary anatomical knowledge–is used in conjunction with the FBI’s appraisal of the case to construct a unique psychological profile. From the long list of candidates the author reveals his prime suspect for the role of the world’s most infamous serial killer. Book reviews online: PublishedBestsellers website.

In February 1889, a shocking and savage murder took place in Dundee, Scotland. Written in chalk at the scene of the crime were the words “Jack the Ripper is at the back door.” When he was arrested, William Bury admitted that he was “afraid he would be arrested as Jack the Ripper.” The police investigation uncovered some disturbing details: Bury, a man known to have been violent towards women, had moved to London just before the start of the Ripper murders and had left the city at the time the murders ceased. And could it have been a coincidence that the slaying in Dundee had all the hallmarks of a Ripper murder? This sensational account presents intriguing evidence that the law really did catch up with Jack the Ripper in a dingy basement flat in Dundee in the cold winter of 1889.

Florence Maybrick was the first American woman to be sentenced to death in England--for murdering her husband, a crime she almost certainly did not commit.
Author: Richard Jay Hutto
Category: True Crime
Florence Maybrick was the first American woman to be sentenced to death in England—for murdering her husband, a crime she almost certainly did not commit. Her 1889 trial was presided over by an openly misogynist judge who was later declared incompetent and died in an asylum. Hours before Maybrick was to be hanged, Queen Victoria reluctantly commuted her sentence to life in prison—in her opinion a woman who would commit adultery, as Maybrick had admitted, would also kill her husband. Her children were taken from her; she never saw them again. Her mother worked for years to clear her name, enlisting the president of the United States and successive ambassadors, including Robert Todd Lincoln. Decades later, a gruesome diary was discovered that made Maybrick’s husband a prime Jack the Ripper suspect.

Author: Deborah McDonald
Category: Biography & Autobiography
Of the many attempts to discover Jack the Ripper’s identity, few omit the name of James Kenneth Stephen, tutor to Queen Victoria’s eldest grandson, fondly known as Prince Eddy. While Stephen superficially fit the profile investigators established, was he really capable of the demented violence perpetrated by England’s most famous serial killer? This volume takes an in-depth look at the life and experiences of James Kenneth Stephen, examining the relevant evidence and attempting to determine whether or not Stephen could actually have been involved in the Ripper murders. Delving into what little is known of Stephen’s early years, the work discusses his relationship with his mother and his family’s struggle with a hereditary mental illness. It follows him through his formative years at Eton, which he considered his true home and where he was introduced to the Greek notion of homosexuality. The work’s primary focus is Stephen’s relationship with Prince Eddy, who also became a suspect in the infamous London murders. The way in which Stephen’s life intertwined with those of Prince Eddy and Montague Druitt, another Ripper suspect, is examined in detail. Other incidents of the fateful fall of 1888 and Stephen’s final surrender to mental illness are also discussed. Appendices contain Stephen’s poetry and details regarding his family ancestry.
