John Littlechild) leading the investigation into the identity of Jack the Ripper, revealed who the police believed was the culprit. Jack was an American, who escaped police custody. When he fled London, the Ripper killings ceased, but then started up again on the other side of the Atlantic. A team of officers from Scotland Yard failed to track Francis J. Tumblety down in America. Did the police 'lose' their files in order to cover-up their own incompetence in letting him escape?
