    Killed at least six prostitutes by strangulation (1964-65)
    Case also known as the London nude murders
    His name is a blatant ripoff of Jack the Ripper.
    He may have also been responsible for two earlier murders in 1959 and 1963.
    Some 'true crime' writers, apparently feeling the case was not lurid enough, claimed that the victims were choked to death by having their heads forced down on the killer's penis during fellatio.
    He was never brought to justice.
    John Du Rose, the Scotland Yard detective in charge of the case, claimed the killer was Mungo Ireland, a security guard who worked at a warehouse where at least one of the victims' bodies had been kept and who committed suicide shortly after the last of the murders.
    However, a later investigation showed that Ireland had been in Scotland when one of the murders was committed.
    Two of the victims were tangentially linked to the Profumo Affair, inspiring a number of conspiracy theories.
    An appeal by police for prostitutes to come forward with information about any clients who had been violent did not catch Jack but did lead to an arrest in the unrelated murder of prostitute Irene Lockwood.
    The killings stopped after detective Du Rose held a news conference falsely claiming the police had narrowed their suspect pool to 20 men.
    He inspired 'Frenzy' (1972), Alfred Hitchcock's last good film.
