Who are the most popular Ripper suspects?

Below are the results of an on-going Casebook poll in which our readers were asked to rate the plausibility of each major Ripper suspect. Ratings scale from 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest). You may sort the results by name, average rating, and number of votes received.

Readers should bear in mind that these results reflect only the general popularity of each particular suspect, not necessarily the most historically plausible candidates. You may cast your own votes at the bottom of each suspect page (linked below).

Results are currently sorted by average rating.
