This year marks the 127th anniversary of the five brutal deaths attributed to the murderer dubbed Jack the Ripper, who earned the moniker from the immense brutality he used to murder his victims.

The bodies of five women were found ripped apart in London’s Whitechapel district in 1888 – four of them are said to have been prostitutes.

Award-winning film director and screenwriter Bruce Robinson reexamines the case and draws his own conclusions about the identity of the world’s most famous serial killer in his new book, “They All Love Jack.”
