Jack the Ripper: A Two Man Team?

4 posts in this topic

I've been thinking, over the years there have been many theories on who Jack the Ripper may have been, but what if it wasn't one person, what if Jack the Ripper was actually two killers working together, to kill & cut out certain organs had to be done with surgical precision, one person could probably pull that off; but it is more likely that two people did it. Thoughts?

Well first off the so called killer named Jack the Ripper was never found, and they suspected he would be one or two thoings, A butcher , A cornier or auptision, and a or a surgieon. Why ? Back in the mid 19th centry the precision cuts made to the human body were done in the same way the murder victims were slain and the tols the police suspected were similar to those of the occupations i mentioned. Interstingly enough if you read a bit about Joseph Carey Merrik, " the elaphant man." they mention the time era the same and the bleaching of the bones process back then was done by the man that worked on the jack the ripper cases , there are may similarities as to this jack the ripper being very well known and unsuspected perhaps at the time of his crimes people didnt suspect those like dohmar , and think if jeffery dahmer was a well known medical or scientific person of social classifications , he wouldnt even be questioned. well that isnt a fact , but go back to the 19th century , they didnt even have electricity, then ask yourself the same question? Just saying there are allot of strange and similar stories or myths about jack the ripper being one of the higher class citizens that nobody would of suspected. so you are very right with your suspicuosions and there is more on the subject of this notorious killer from the past. Good read !!

Electricity was discovered in the 18th century, they most certainly did have electricity in the 19th century, the killings happened in the 1888 - '89, granted the electric lights you would find were in the affluent neighbourhoods, or government institiutions, which used carbon filament lamps which were introduced in the early part of that decade; but of course even then, you'd find a mix of gas lighting there as well...in the poor areas of Britain people would still use candles to light their homes.

I'd consider any explanation(s) other than what has been offered so far, as to who or whom the "Ripper(s) were and how he(they) escaped detection and arrest.
