Ripper Murder of Ms Stride
Murder of Elizabeth Stride happened here, followed by riots
Location: Dutfield's Yard, off Henriques Street
Description: Henriques Street was formerly called Berners Street, and it was behind an international workers club here that Elizabeth Stride met her fate at the hands of the Ripper. It's almost certain that the Ripper was disturbed while he was mutilating the victim in the early hours of the 1st October 1888.The day after the murder, a citizen mob formed outside of Berner Street protesting the continuation of the murders and the seemingly slipshod work of the police to catch the Ripper. From here on in, the Ripper is public enemy number one, and Home Office begins to consider offering awards for his capture and arrest.
