Profile of Jack the Ripper
Many books have been written claiming to solve the crime. Jack the Ripper: The Final Solution, a 1976 book by Stephen Knight, suggested that the murders were meant to silence women who were blackmailing Prince Eddy, a grandson of Queen Victoria. Author Patricia Cornwell’s 2002 book Portrait of a Killer claimed that Jack the Ripper was actually Walter Sickert, an Impressionist painter of the era; Cornwell wrote a second book in 2016, The Secret Life of Walter Sickert.
