Autobiography of the Ripper

20 Jan

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-somerset-16512152
They have just had the biggest break in the Ripper case, since well over a hundred years when the Ripper case started. Jack has apparently made the classic giant mistake of writing a memoir about his experiences ripping his way through White Chapel all of those years ago.

I’m naturally skeptical as to the authenticity of these memoirs. I highly doubt that they have been sitting out of sight all these years to just now be rediscovered. This comes from my admittedly limited understanding of Jack the Ripper. As I understand it the Ripper craved attention, he continued a spree of highly violent crimes without any effort to conceal the bodies. He sent at least a few letters to Scotland Yard basically taunting the police. He even went as far to send half a kidney to them, you know just for a laugh. I feel like if he had written these memoirs his ego would probably have led him to try to send this papers to someone, so he could get the recognition.

These papers are said to be written by a James Carnac yet no record of a James Carnac existing have been found.

I do however greatly want to read these, and find out what more experts have to say before I fully confirm my opinion.
