The mystery of Jack the Ripper haunts the minds of men to this day, over 125 years after his brutal string of murders in Victorian-era London. Amateur and professional criminologists continue to speculate on the Ripper case, citing what scant evidence remains after the case files were rifled through, and some of the materials pilfered. All too often, the stolen evidence remains missing. But sometimes, on a very rare occasion, a piece of evidence is rediscovered.
The Ripper’s letters have always been commonly circulated, even at the height of the scare. Their authenticity notwithstanding, they offer a chilling insight into the mind of this hellish beast of a man.
No such letters were reported after the Ripper’s final murder, however, and it is commonly believed that his killings ended after the death of Mary Kelly. But a recently-recovered report from the scene of Kelly’s bedroom purports to include a transcript of just such a note, scrawled upon the one wall that was excluded from any crime scene photos. The message’s contents make it clear why the transcript was excluded from the evidence. To a rational mind, it’s a work of lunacy.
Chilling. And worth considering. Is it possible that a murderer so successful and so enamored with his own work as Jack the Ripper simply ceased to kill? Not likely. Jack himself, in this bloody correspondence, seems to insist that he endures somewhere beyond, transformed and unseen by all but those who follow him there. Imagine it… a monstrous Jack the Ripper unbound, dancing to and fro across the veil that separates this life from his Hell.
If the mystery of Jack the Ripper still beckons to you, then this revelation is a fortuitous one. After all, your questions can now be answered in one of two ways. In one, you must go to Hell. And in the other, Hell comes to you…
