Jack the Stripper

Upon reading the name “Jack the Stripper” many mistakenly believe that it is a typographical error of “Jack the Ripper;” however, the two cases are two different cases all together. The Jack the Stripper cases are also referred to as the Hammersmith murders or the Hammersmith nudes cases, and the London nude murders. Just like Jack the Ripper, Jack the Stripper was known for targeting prostitutes. He is believed to have killed six, but possibly eight prostitutes between the years of 1964 and 1965. The bodies of his victims were found dumped in London’s River Thames or dumped throughout London.

As with the case of Jack the Ripper, the case of Jack the Stripper had little evidence to point toward a suspect for the murders other than the presence of paint from a motor manufacturing plant that turned up on a number of the bodies. While there was no actual arrest in the case there have been a number of suspects. The most likely suspect in the murder cases was a Scottish security guard named Mungo Ireland. Ireland was tied to the case through his position as a security guard at a factory where the flecks of paint found on the bodies were traced to. Unfortunately for the case Ireland committed suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning shortly after the flecks of paint were traced back to the factory where he worked. The most significant piece of evidence that pointed to Ireland’s involvement in the cases was the suicide note that he left for his wife stating “I can’t stick it any longer” in addition to stating “To save you and the police looking for me I’ll be in the garage.” While this note could indicate an involvement in the cases, other evidence points to Ireland being out of town when one of the Stripper murders took place and that it could not have been his doing. A number of other suspects have been fingered in the case; however, none has ever been convicted.

I am having issue with my PC now so I would ask if somebody can please post the sketch of JTS? I want to know thoughts of the comparison to Lake Berryesa sketch? Looks the same to me.

The most notorious serial killer never caught is the infamous "Jack the Ripper". Around 1888, five brutal murders were attributed to shadowy and vicious killer who targeted prostitutes. It is quite possible that he may have been responsible for even more. Countless books have been written and suspects are still talked about more than a century later. However, "Jack the Ripper" is not the only "unknown killer" to terrorize Great Britain.

In 1964 to 1965, the London area had six dead women that were murdered and found naked. Scotland Yards theorized that a serial killer was responsible for the six, though some theories point to at least two additional victims found in 1959 and 1963. Much like the famous "Jack the Ripper" killings, the victims were prostitutes. It is likely that the women were killed by strangulation and/or asphyxiation. Thousands of persons of interest were interviewed and only a handful were considered prime suspects. One of them ended up committing suicide.

I can see a slight resemblance, but this guy was "doing his thing" in Great Brittain. Pretty far from the S.F. bay area.
