George Chapman & Jack the Ripper

The Dastardly Past:  George Chapman & Jack the Ripper.



On April 7th 1903, British authorities execute Polish murderer George Chapman, who was responsible for the deaths of three women by poison.  Some people also consider Chapman a likely contender for the Whitechapel murders perpetrated by Jack the Ripper over a decade previously.  Helena Wojtczak explores this possibility in her book, Jack the Ripper at Last? George Chapman, the Southwark Poisoner (2016), available on Amazon.
