Dr. John William Sanders
Mentioned as a possible Ripper suspect by researcher Jon Ogan. Sanders is not to be confused with another Ripper suspect John William Smith Saunders. Dr Sanders was born in 1859 and was a surgeon and gynaecologist at the Croydon fever hospital, the Bethnal Green infirmary and the St Georges in the east infirmary. He died from heart failure, while under anaesthetic, in January 1889 at the age of thirty. Apart from having the requisite medical skills, there is no real reason to suspect him, other than his death occurring shortly after the murder of Mary Kelly, which fitted some theorists explanation for the sudden cessation of the murders.
