 Jack the Ripper: A Suspect Guide 
This text is from the E-book Jack the Ripper: A Suspect Guide by Christopher J. Morley (2005). Click here to return to the table of contents. The text is unedited, and any errors or omissions rest with the author. Our thanks go out to Christopher J. Morley for his permission to publish his E-book.


The Bluefield Daily Telegraph 22 December 1903, reported that, 'Jack the Ripper, who killed and mutilated prostitute, Sarah Martin, in a hotel in James Slip, in exactly the same manner as Old Shakespeare (Carrie Brown) twelve years ago, was Calor'. Detectives searched the transport ship the Kilpatrick, which was anchored at the bay ready to sail for Manila. The murderer, it was said, left many clues behind, including a letter which it is said may clear up the latest sensation'.

A Finnish sailor and Jack the Ripper suspect named Emil Totterman, alias Carl Nielsen, was subsequently arrested and charged with the murder of Sarah Martin. There is, however, no evidence this murder was connected to the Whitechapel murders.
