Famous Historical Figures That May Have Never Existed

The World May Never Know

The name Jack the Ripper originated from an anonymous letter sent to the press from someone who claimed to have been the culprit behind the gory murders. But now, the letter is deemed to be a hoax written by journalists who were trying to sell more papers. Still, it doesn’t explain who was behind the murders or if it was even one person, which many think is the case since all of the murders were similar.

One popular theory is that the murders were committed by multiple people who were being orchestrated by one person! However, authorities were never able to agree on theories about who Jack the Ripper was.
