Jack the Ripper - were the victims' organs stolen later?

The following story has appeared on the news wires this week:

"Jack the Ripper may have committed his first murder 25 years earlier than previously thought, it has been claimed.

An investigation by retired homicide detective Trevor Marriott has also suggested that the notorious 19th century serial killer did not, in fact, remove internal organs from two of his victims.

Mr Marriott, who will present his findings in a lecture at London's Docklands Museum, has uncovered case files on the murder of a London prostitute in 1863 which he believes fits the Ripper's "modus operandi" - a quarter of a century before the first official Ripper case.

It is highly unlikely that Jack the Ripper started his life of crime in 1863. He would have been a very youthful serial killer. However, the possibility that the victims' organs were removed during subsequent post mortem is a new angle deserving of serious investigation.
