The Most Infamous Suspect
Jack The Ripper is without question one of the most gruesome murderers of all time, and he also represents one of the world's greatest unsolved mysteries. As a huge fan of the fictional character Sherlock Holmes, I find it amazing that even Sir Arthur Conan Doyle couldn't resist the opportunity to sell stories by including the day's most infamous killer.
The press sold thousands if not millions of papers due to this despicable human's attacks, and many suspects arose after much speculation. Perhaps the most stylish and without question most aristocratic of these suspects was Prince Albert, Duke of Clarence. Was he the killer? The world will never know, but it is amazing how things come about during a controversy.
If you are interested in an evening of unsolved murder mysteries, pick up a book or research the Jack The Ripper saga. Though gruesome, you will find it interesting.
