Attempts to unravel the identity of Jack The Ripper

The book, One-Armed Jack: Uncovering the Real Jack the Ripper, provided an intriguing theory regarding the identity of the notorious serial killer. Horton, a former police volunteer with a personal connection to the original investigation through her great-great-grandfather, suggested that a man named Hyam Hyams might have been the elusive criminal.

However, one of the most compelling pieces of evidence in Horton’s theory is the timing of the murders and Hyams’ interactions with the law. She pointed out that the brutal killings suddenly ceased around the same time that Hyams was apprehended by the police, and subsequently committed to the Colney Hatch Lunatic Asylum in North London.
