Educated Fiend

Post by Karen on Sun 28 Feb 2010 - 12:26

It is understood (says the London correspondent of the Sydney Morning Herald) that the police have practically abandoned all hope of catching the perpetrator of the Whitechapel murders, who, on the assumption that all these crimes have been the work of one hand, has been able to commit four brutal murders within a short space of time without being discovered. The only chance that remains of securing the miscreant is that he may commit another murder and be caught in the act, or else that he may, in some drunken or unguarded moment, let out the secret. The medical examination of the remains of the woman Chapman shows that the murder must have been the work of someone possessing a certain degree of anatomical knowledge, and the doctors discard both the maniac and the slaughterman theories. We are, therefore, left face to face with the awful fact that we have at large in the metropolis an educated fiend, afflicted with a devouring thirst for human blood, and that the best chance we have of capturing him lies in his adding to the number of his crimes. Under circumstances like these it is no wonder that Whitechapel should be in a state of panic.

Note: It becomes apparent that after Eddowes' murder, the medical experts knew that the Ripper was an educated man and was certainly possessed of more anatomical and surgical knowledge than a slaughterman or mere maniac.
