Is anyone else interested in "Ripperology"?

Recently have gotten interested in it and am looking for others opinions on what they believe about it.

Interesting LOvEmuSIC, I have never heard of "Ripperology" until just now. And looked it up. I have a fascination with serial kilIers, not just Jack the Ripper but all of them. I have read tons of books and watched tons of movies based on a lot of them. Have you ever heard of Queen Elizabeth Bathory? She's my favorite.

I haven't. Will have to look her up although I know most infamous US serial killers (due to school). The ripper case completely caught my attention and the further information I found out, the more I wanted to know who did these killings. We'll probably never know.

Me too. You know what is not surprising about Elizabeth Bathory? She was abused. I also think it is interesting that she is related to Vlad Tepesh, aka "Dracula."

Queen Elizabeth wasn't from the Us thou. But her story and what she did was very fascinating to say the least!

You want to know something crazy? Back in the 30's (?) in a little town right next to where I live, there was a whole family slain. The kilIer was never found. The house and town are now famous. You can look that one up too. Villisca Axe Murder.
As for JTR, it's very interesting because you're right, he was never caught. And a lot of those "un solved crimes" you know might link back to him as well.

Yes HaiMai, I'm really into learning about Vlad as well. And it's really not surprising on the abuse. A person can't imagine (unless taught) the things that she did to those people.

Yes, I know she didn't. Just saying I know more US killers than worldwide killers .

CJ, "Hometown Mass Killing?" Wow. That's wild. And disconcerting. In my hometown, my parents have quite a bit of woodsy acreage, and a body was discovered buried on their land. Turns out he was a horse thief in the 1800's, and strung up in the woods for it. As for "Horse Thief" well, he was a black man, so extrapolate from THAT.

Well it didn't happen in my hometown, but a town about 40 miles away. It's pretty scary to think. They "say" the guy traveled via train, kiIled the family including some children AND their friends who were staying overnight, and the parents. With an axe none the less.
And wow how crazy! And odd at the same time. If the story "is" true, that would be really neat to read up on that horse thief! But.. like you said. Sounds fishy.

Oh man. You got me right there. With: Never caught, Traveled by train, Axe, Children.
Local historical society said horse Thief, but it was the 70's, and a lot was never known. Out in the middle of the woods does not fill me with confidence as to legitimacy of "execution?" Yes always seemed fishy to me, and the word "lynching" has floated through my mind.

Ever read " mind hunter " by John Douglas cj? That's one of my favs.

Elizabeth Bathary was a countess, not a queen.
