I love Jack the Ripper. Reminds me of myself when I used to kill prostitutes.

I've always wondered who he was. He was one of the many first serial killers that got away entirely.

Niiiice. He's probably looking for that sunlight soap to wash his hands with. ; )

it's a kind of industrial strength soap we used to use in the print shop at school, that stuff would clean off anything

No, I was talking about the nursery rhyme.

Jack the Ripper is dead
Jack the Ripper is dead
He's lying in his bed
He slit his throat
With sunlight soap
Jack the Ripper is dead

I guess the safest answer is that the victims were definitely real, though the killer was never discovered
