Julius Lipman

A report in the News Of The World 21 October 1900 reported, The death has just occurred in the East End of London of Julius Lipman, nicknamed Leather Apron, a cobbler, who in 1889 fell under suspicion of being Jack the Ripper. He satisfied the police of his innocence, but the stigma never left him. His business gradually disappeared, and he went to another neighbourhood, where he took to drink, he died of neglect and semi starvation. Little is actually known about Lippman and he is possibly Julius Lippman, listed in the 1881 census as born in Birmingham, Warwickshire in 1861. His occupation is given as slipper maker and his marital status as unmarried.
