Jack the Ripper in Hove!!! again

by Dave Phillips 20 July 2006

When I put in a post about the above on 27 June 2006 the only reply I received was “What a load of Tosh”.If there are doubters out there may I direct them to the Times web site at and check out the news items for 14 July 2006 about a book donated/lent to the Scotland Yard Museum which mentions the fact.To my mind this is quite a major event in the history of Brighton/Hove,bearing in mind he was the first publicised serial killer in the UK and was never brought to account for his crimes, should deserve a bit more attention don’t you think?On the other hand there may be absolutely no information out there or it is only me who thinks in such a way.
Anyway heres hoping
