Frederick Post
Maryland, U.S.A.
2 June 1913

JACK THE RIPPER TOOK HIS OWN LIFE IN 1888, LONDON INSPECTOR SAYS

Special to the Frederick Post

London, June 1.
Chief McNaughton, 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 of the underworld in 1888, and whose end remained a mystery until now, committed suicide in November of that year.

Jack the Ripper's crimes extended over a long period and although the entire police force of London was sent to catch him, he was never caught in the act of assaulting his victims. He mutilated them horribly with a knife. His crimes created a great sensation at the time.

"I have a very clear idea of who he was and how he committed suicide," said McNaughton, "but that and other secrets never will be revealed by me."

He added that no records exist of the secret information he acquired during his connection with the service, and he says he will not write any reminiscences.
