Did Jack the Ripper live here?
One of the strongest Jack the Ripper suspects lived here.
Location: 3 Sion Square, Whitechapel, London
Description: It was here that strong Polish Ripper suspect Aaron Kosminski lived with his sisters Woolf and Betsy Abrahams.
The case is one of the biggest unsolved mysteries of all time but police in 2006 believe the name of the culprit could be that of Aaron Kosminski - a Polish born Jew who spent the last 28 years of his life in a lunatic asylum. This followed new documents discovered by a relative of Chief Inspector Donald Sutherland Swanson, the police officer in charge of solving the mystery murders.
