In the second episode of our Jack the Ripper series, we continue and finish the story of the initial 1888 killing spree with the final 3 of the "Canonical Five" victims: Elizabeth Stride, Catherine Eddowes, and Mary Jane Kelly. Stride and Eddowes would, shockingly, be murdered the same night in September 1888...and the Ripper would seem to end his spree with the shocking, horrific murder of Mary Kelly in her own home in November.
We also discuss the infamous "Jack the Ripper" letters, which researchers remain divided on if they were sent by the real killer or not.
Next week we'll go through the suspects - both likely and unlikely.
