But they were, he believes, neither simple bystanders nor — as some have later claimed — potential culprits, but central to a methodical and elaborate attempt to stir the already simmering pot of anti-Semitism. Certainly, the atmosphere for Jews in the autumn of was sulfurous. The concerns about immigration did not stem simply from ingrained anti-Semitism.
This was the combustible mix, Senise theorises, that Jack the Ripper was determined to set light to. Ironically, the fuse may have been lit by the fact that a parliamentary inquiry into sweated labor — one of two examining issues related to Jewish immigration — had announced that it would shift its focus away from the East End of London at the end of its autumn session. A week later, on Saturday, September 8, the Ripper struck again, murdering Annie Chapman in the early hours of the morning.

Once again, his target was a heavy-drinking, middle-aged prostitute, and, once again too, her body had been horribly mutilated. Even before the discovery of a leather apron near to her body, the press was speculating about the potential identity of the killer. On the night of the final Saturday of September, the Ripper carried out his most audacious killings. The double murders of Elizabeth Stride and Catherine Eddowes left a further trail of clues as to his anti-Semitic motives.
The locations of the attacks were chosen with care.
The content of both were highly revealing and purposefully so. The first came as a man thought to be the Ripper was spotted attempting to assault a woman, later identified as Stride. The second came after he had murdered Eddowes when police discovered a bloody item of her clothing underneath freshly scrawled graffiti.
But Senise does not simply have a motive — he also has a suspect, a man who would reveal himself after the Ripper claimed his fifth victim, Mary Jane Kelly, just over a month after he had last struck. Some of the more bizarre links include Lewis Carroll, author of the Alice in Wonderland books, who taught at Christ Church until - which was at the forefront of the Ripper murder scenery. Winston Churchill's father - Lord Randolph Churchill - has also been named as a potential suspect.
Crime writer Patricia Cornwell believes she has 'cracked' the case by unearthing evidence that confirms Walter Sickert, an influential artist, as the prime suspect. Her theories have not been generally accepted.
In The Seduction Of Mary Kelly, his novel about the life and times of the final victim, he suggests Jack the Ripper was in fact a woman. Police discovering the body of one of Jack the Ripper's victims, probably Catherine Eddowes. Crime historian Dr Jan Bondeson has named Hendrik de Jong as a prime suspect for the most notorious set of unsolved murders in history.
At the time of the Whitechapel murders, de Jong is believed to have worked as a steward on board a ship which made frequent trips from Rotterdam to London, providing him with the perfect means of getting out of the country after his heinous crimes.
