In 1888 London witnessed the most notorious unsolved crime in British history. It saw the birth of the modern serial killer and launched the legend of “jack the ripper.” Meanwhile his victims have been forgotten. Now, 3 experts in forensic psychology, policing, and history reinvestigate the case and question the version of the story we think is true. The team’s mission is to separate fact from fiction and ask how much of what we know about this celebrated killer is a myth and why the only truth, the story of the five brutally murdered women, has been hidden by history.
