3. Jack the Ripper: Who Dunnit? moderated by Randy Myerson
During the summer of 1888 terror gripped the inhabitants of London’s East End as a serial killer made headlines with the brutal murder of 5 “women of the streets”. During that summer and for the months, years and decades after, there emerged numerous suspects, but none could be proven to be the perpetrator. Even today the question remains, who dunnit? In this course we will meet the victims and walk the very streets where they lived. We will examine some of the more prominent and compelling “suspects” and we will decide for ourselves who actually was Jack the Ripper. We will also view the BBC drama “Jack the Ripper” starring Michael Caine and Jane Seymour.
