In this dramatic episode we look at the suspects, narrow them down, and then present a strong hypothesis as to who the Whitechapel murderers were. The evidence is compelling. We will also introduce upcoming interviews with two major Ripper authors, Jeff Mudgett, whose book and story inspired the History Channel Special "American Ripper", lecturer and author Michael Hawley, Ripper expert and the author of many Ripper books, most notably his upcoming book "Jack the Ripper: Suspect- Francis Tumblety".
