Rumour, hearsay, gossip and conjecture have swirled like a London fog around the infamous Whitechapel murders since the night they began long ago in Buck’s Row on August 31st, 1888. Every element pertaining to this most famous of all murder cases has been disputed, analysed and pored over by police officers, professional specialists and thousands upon thousands of amateur “Ripperologists” ever since. But the true identity of Jack the Ripper – despite having been the subject of intense debate with more than 100 candidates suggested, theories and new physical evidence – has remained elusive.
John Gotti watched the jury foreperson and waited for the words that would determine the rest of his life. They were not long in coming…Guilty on all 13 counts of murder, loansharking, illegal gambling and racketeering. In that instant Gotti, probably the most powerful of all Mafia dons, knew beyond all reasonable doubt that the good times and indeed his very freedom were finally over – forever.
