1888 – Mary Jane Kelly is Murdered in Whitechapel

09 Nov

She was considered the last of Jack the Ripper’s unfortunate victims and also the most ghastly.  She was young, no older than twenty-five when she died, born in Ireland and living in poverty during the last years of her life, which forced her into a life of prostitution in order to make rent.  At nearly eleven a.m. on November Ninth, the assistant to Kelly’s landlord was sent to collect her overdue rent when he discovered her mutilated corpse, laying in a pool of blood in her own bed.  There was nothing left of her face and her organs had been spread throughout the room, her skin hacked away.  All that was left untouched was her hair.
