Jack The Ripper, Episode 1: The First Murder History Uncovered

    • History

On August 31, 1888, a young woman by the name of Mary Ann Nichols was found dead, her body gruesomely mutilated on the streets of London’s Whitechapel neighborhood.

Police didn’t know it at the time, but Nichols’ murder was just the first of several similar, grisly killings that would play out over the following two months. In total, five women would be found dead, each of them maimed and disfigured in a vicious manner – all at the hands of a serial killer named Jack the Ripper.
