Softcover. When Joseph Barnett gave evidence at the inquest into the murder of Mary Jane Kelly he told the coroner that he had seen the body of his former partner and he identified her 'by ear and eyes'. Such was the extent to which Mary Jane Kelly's body had been mutilated that the man with whom she had lived for 20 months described her only recognisable features. Mary Jane Kelly was murdered in her room at 13 Miller's Court, Whitechapel on the morning of November 9, 1888 and the police photographs of the crime scene have come to epitomise the ferocity of several murders committed in the same area during the autumn of that year. The series was regarded as the work of a serial killer known as Jack the Ripper and popular belief suggests that 5 prostitutes died by the knife of the same killer, Mary Jane Kelly being the final victim. This book is a meticulous and objective examination of each of these murders and of several others that formed the Whitechapel series and comes to rather different conclusions. With Tables, Diagrams and Illus., Notes and Bibliog. 300pp. 8vo. softcover. As New with no creasing to covers. A fairly heavy book which may require additional postage if shipped overseas.
