Jack the Ripper – a new suspect

28th June 2019

13:30 – 14:00

Waterside Campus, University Drive, Northampton, NN1 5PH


Join Dr Drew Gray, Subject Leader for History, as he discusses how he and graduate Andy Wise unearthed a new suspect in the famous Whitechapel (or Jack the Ripper) murders of 1888 in their new book ‘Jack and the Thames Torso Murders’.

Using a range of historical and genealogical sources Drew and Andrew have been able to investigate the candidacy of one local man who they think may be responsible for the murder of up to 15 or more women between 1887 and 1891. The findings, detailed in this new book, published on 15 June 2019, is bound to cause quite a few ripples amongst those that are interested in the case, especially as it is the first book to link both the Whitechapel and Thames Torso murders together.

Drew will discuss his and Andy’s research, the process of writing the book and be available to answer any questions you might have.

Please contact Drew for any further questions
