The Argument

Although many different claims have been made about the psychological characteristics of Jack the Ripper, the one certainty of his character is that he must have been capable of committing the heinous act of murder. It is also a well-known fact that he exclusively killed women. In 1903, Seweryn KÅ‚osowski was hanged for just that type of crime: he married and murdered three successive women. As he lived in Whitechapel during the same period of time in which the Ripper killings took place, it is likely that Klosowski was responsible for the Ripper's crimes.
