Alonzo Maduro

Mr Griffiths Salway, who worked for a brokerage firm in Old Broad Street, came to know through his business dealings Mr Alonzo Maduro, who was a successful Argentinean businessman. On the night Emma Elizabeth Smith was murdered Salway came across Maduro in Whitechapel, and overheard him say that all prostitutes should be killed. When Salway later discovered Maduro possessed surgical knives, he became convinced Maduro was the Ripper, though kept his suspicions to himself until 1952, when he told his wife. Little is actually known about Maduro, but the fact that he was allegedly in Whitechapel the night Emma Smith was murdered does not prove he was Jack the Ripper, largely because Emma Smith was almost certainly not a Ripper victim. Before she died Emma Smith claimed that she was assaulted and robbed by three men, one of them a youth of about nineteen. She died the following day from peritonitis, as a result of a blunt object being thrust into her vagina.
