Known for a series of grisly murders in London in 1888, the mystery of Jack the Ripper's identity remains to this day. The crimes have inspired books, thriller films, documentaries, songs, London walking tours, a tourist museum, and even a shadowy waxwork figure at Madame Tussauds' Chamber of Horrors.
