JACK THE RIPPER RECALLED

Scotland Yard Sleuth Says Noted Murderer Ended Own Life in 1888

London, June 2.
Sir Melville MacNaughton (sic) chief of the criminal investigation department of Scotland Yard, who recently retired, reveals the fact that the mysterious murderer, "Jack the Ripper," who killed seven women on the East End, London, in 1888, and whose end remained a mystery until now, committed suicide in November of that year.

"I have a very clear idea who he was and how he committed suicide," said MacNaughton, "but that and other secrets will never be revealed by me." He adds that no record exists of the secret information he possessed during his connection with the service and he says he will not write any reminiscences.
