New Hull Ripper Scare?

Archives, Hull Press, Press Reports, Research Add comments

The headlines said it all “Hull Ripper Scare,” “Jack the Ripper Scare in Hull,” and “Jack the Stabber at large.”  These were the reports I discovered this week in several newspapers and covering an incident where 5 women were stabbed.  I managed to trace several different newspapers, giving different views, and some of them featured illustrations of the suspects.  I was also able to ascertain who the culprit was, and managed to obtain birth, marriage and death data.

Hot on the trail I also uncovered the entry in the Calendar Entry of Prisoners, and from this the actual court proceedings of his case!  More info to follow!
