     The historical figure I chose for this assignment was Jack the Ripper. He is London’s most famous serial killer. Based on witnesses’ accounts, he had a normal appearance, which made it hard for police to find him. Up to this day, no one knows his real identity because the police were never able to capture him.

     Jack the Ripper’s victims were mostly alcoholic prostitutes. He mutilated and murdered at least five prostitutes in the 19th century. He killed all his victims, except one, by strangulation. After that, he laid the victim on the ground and cut the victim’s throat all the way around to drain the blood. Then, he surgically removed the victim’s organ’s to keep them as trophies. He is one of history’s legendary serial killers.
