A Yarn about Jack the Ripper

Some enterprising police reporter in Los Angeles has tried to establish the identity of jack the Ripper, the infamous Whitechapel murderer, by a cock and bull story of a would be murderer in the southern city who refers to the London fiend in his insane wanderings. I am afraid this police sensation will fall flat. The identity of Jack the Ripper was established years ago, though the fact was never made public. Those who are familiar with unwritten police annals know that the Ripper was a celebrated London physician who at one time treated King Edward and who had attacks of murderous insanity. When he was caught he was confined in a private asylum and every effort was made to keep the facts secret, but of course they leaked out and are pretty generally known, especially in Europe.

Town Talk.
