Many years ago I used to collect replicas of old newspapers, one such paper was The Illustrated Police Times.
Jack the Ripper
We have all heard the familiar story of the Whitechapel murders, and probably made our judgement on the nature of the killer. Did you know one key element of evidence was tampered with?
Writing on the wall
The common assumption made by many people is the writing on the wall said The Jews are not people who will not be messed with. This is the official police photographers version, however it is far from the truth. The original chalked writing had been wiped off, and replaced.
By using the term Jews, we are led to believe that the killer was Jewish. A fair assumption for the area, then as now, Whitechapel has a large Jewish community. It is one of the poorest London districts, and is near the docks. This is a false implication, then as now the Jewish people are hard working, honest folk.
The foundation of the term Jueues goes back to the days of the Knights Templars. It is a Catalan term, I haven't been able to find a meaning in my research of the years.
One thing I was able to ascertain is that at the time of the Ripper murders; there was a Masonic Lodge called The Jueues, and apparently three of their members were killed in the dockland area of London.
Where better to hide a murderer than a masonic lodge, bound by an oath of silence. If you doubt the power of the masons, read my book Sexual Explosions 1, https://www.draft2digital.com/book/32234 the crime I mentioned in the story, and the ensuing cover up took place as I wrote it. I know, I reported the theft.
Ideas on an identity
One of the most common theories is the killer was a French doctor who booked himself into a local asylum. Then, as now, if you booked yourself in you could come and go as you please.
Another idea on the killer's identity is he was a doctor with a grudge against prostitutes, this fits with the speed needed to dissect the bodies silently.
One theory is he was a butcher, someone in the meat trade could walk unnoticed with blood on his apron, people would assume it was animal blood.
One theory I like is that he was a Russian sailor, probably from a whaler; he would know how to dissect a body, and a few months later a similar spate of murders did occur in Russia.
