The Victims were Many
These are the most noted,
Mary Jane Kelly
Gull died on
January 29th 1890.
His death certificate was
signed by his son-in-law Theodore Dyke Ackland.
This was rather unusual because relatives were not really
supposed to sign death certificates as it was possible
the could benefit from the death.
What Dr Ackland did was not illegal
but a bit improper especially as he was not
the only doctor in attendance.
In April 1895 a story appeared in the Chicago
"Sunday Times-Herald" saying that Jack the Ripper
had been tracked down by the medium
Robert James Lees. The killer had turned out
to be a distinguished West End physician who was
certified insane by a tribunal of doctors and he put
in an asylum under the name of Thomas Mason.
It was announced that the physician had died
and a fake funeral was held.
By 1888, the time of the Whitechapel murders,
John Netley was a Hackney carriage driver in London.
The Final Solution. written by Knight, says Netley drove
the coach in which Sir William Gull carried out the
actual killings. He was left handed. He was killed, by falling out
of his own cab and in front of horses. HUMMMM!! They
said it was an accident.
I have always been interested in OLE JACK,
