When the diaries of James Maybrick a Liverpool trader were unearthed the last piece in a puzzle over 100 years old was in place. The event made front page headlines, international debate and the strongest evidence yet as to the true identity of Jack the Ripper. This text is a journey back to the scene and execution of what may well be the most infamous spate of murders in history, adding to the evidence the controversial information that the world's most famous murderer may also have struck in America as well as London.
