Jack the Ripper Stalks German City, Killing Nine

Dusseldorf, Germany - Nov. 16.
Many women here are carrying bags of pepper for defense against possible attack by a Jack the Ripper who has been terrorizing Dusseldorf for some time. Terrified parents are keeping children in their homes.

The man is believed responsible for the murder of nine women and children and for attacks on many others. He has been treating with open contempt the huge police staff which is searching for him by sending sketches showing where his victims are buried, two of whom actually were found at the places indicated.
