Events

Martha Tabram was killed

9 August 1888

She had suffered 39 stab wounds. But the difference between this attack and a typical murder is that Tabram was stabbed instead of being cut in the throat and abdomen, and many experts did not link it to subsequent murder because of differences in wound patterns.

Mary Ann Nichols was killed

31 August 1888

Nichols' body was found at 3:40 am in Buck's Row, Whitechapel.The throat was cut twice and the lower part of the abdomen was partially torn by a deep jagged wound. The same knife caused several other incisions in the abdomen.

Annie Chapman was killed

8 September 1888

Chapman's body was discovered at about 6 am near a doorway in the backyard of 29 Hanbury Street, Spitalfields. Like Mary Ann Nichols, her throat was cut twice.

'Dear Boss'

27 September 1888

Central News Agency received a letter written in red ink, stamped with the signature "Jack the Ripper." The letter jokingly stated that she was the killer of the killing of prostitutes and claimed she would continue to kill more prostitutes before her arrest.

Elizabeth Stride and Catherine Eddowes were killed

30 September 1888

Stride's remains were found at about 1 a.m. in the Dutfield yard, Whitechapel. The reason for the death was a severe cut of the left main artery in the neck. Because of the absence of injuries to the abdomen, Slade's murder was due to the uncertainty of the ripper or whether he was interrupted during the attack. Witnesses said they saw Stride meeting with a man that night, but given a different description: some said that her companion was fair and the others were dark; some said he was dressed and others were wearing well.
Eddowes' body was found in Mitre Square in the City of London, three-quarters of an hour after Stride's.The throat was severed, and the abdomen was torn by long, deep jagged wounds. Most of the left kidney and the uterus have been removed. A local man named Joseph Lawende crossed the square with two friends shortly before his murder, describing a blonde as a fair-haired man of shabby appearance with a woman who may have been Eddowes. His companions cannot confirm his description. Eddowes‘ and Stride's murder were later referred to as" double events. "Some of Eddowes's bloody aprons were found at the entrance to an apartment on Whitechapel Goulston Street, with walls on the April, Known for graffiti on Dayton Street, it seems that there are Jewish or Jewish influences involved, but it is unclear whether the graffiti was written by a murderer or merely incidental. This graffiti is common in the Whitechapel, and Chief of Police Charles Warren fears that graffiti may trigger Anti-Semitic riots, and ordered it to wash away before dawn.
