Jack the Ripper haunted London's East End red-light district and killed several prostitutes there. He murdered of at least seven women, all prostitutes, in or near the Whitechapel district of London's East End, from Aug. 7 to Nov. 10, 1888.
They knew so little about serial killers in the Victorian era. The ripper would slit open his victims as if doing an autopsy and carefully lay the organs around the victim. Given their ignorance, they thought that the man must be either a surgeon or have some considerable medical training. Even Queen Victoria's own physician came under scrutiny.

But serial killers just have to have a deep fascination with inner organs, not any real medical experience. It is unlikely that a serial killer, usually a social loser who often is a loner, would ever have the emotional stability to be a brutal serial killer. There have been doctors and nurses, however, who have killed their patients "cleanly" via drug injections or the wrong medications. But drug overdoses are not the stuff of the extreme nightmares the brutal serial killers can think up for their victims.

There is strong evidence to indicate that Jack the Ripper was an immigrant Polish Jew with a low-level job. He was arrested and sent to a mental asylum for the rest of his life. The man fits the modern day profile of the brutal serial killer.
