There are many theories on who Jack the Ripper was but there is only one thing that can be said with certainty, he was a vile and evil creature.There is a special place in hell for people like him.
Jack the ripper was well aware of this himself that’s probably why one of his letters started of with “From Hell”
The From Hell letter is probably the most disturbing of the three most infamous Jack the Ripper messages. Which was mainly because of to how the letter arrived,inside a small box, including half of a human kidney.
The letter, dated October 15,1888 was addressed to George Lusk, head of the Whitechapel Vigilance Committee. He received it on October 16, 1888.
One of murder victim Catherine Eddowes’ kidneys had been removed by the killer. Medical opinion at the time was that the organ could have been gotteb by medical students and sent with the letter as part of a practical joke. Initially Lusk himself believed this also and did not report the letter until he was urged to do so by friends.
Dr. Thomas Openshaw of the London Hospital found that it came from a sickly alcoholic woman who had died within the past three weeks, evidence according to him that it belonged to Eddowes.
The letter read:
I send you half the Kidne I took from one woman prasarved it for you tother piece I fried and ate it was very nise. I may send you the bloody knif that took it out if you only wate a whil longer
Catch me when you can Mishter Lusk”
