Ex-detective's Ripper probe - startling results

SINCE 2002, retired murder squad detective Trevor Marriott has been conducting a cold case investigation into The Whitechapel Murders of 1888 which were attributed to a fearsome killer who came to be known as Jack the Ripper.

For the past 123 years this mystery has captivated the imagination of people worldwide — and still does today.

So much so that the topic of Jack the Ripper is now included in the school curriculum for key stage three history.

There have been more than 100 books published and numerous films and television documentaries. Many have over-dramatised and distorted the facts to the point that the public now accepts the fiction more readily than the facts.

Trevor Marriott has now concluded his long and protracted investigation with startling results, which now have completely dispelled many of the original theories which have been readily accepted as being fact for 123 years.

And his two-hour show, An Audience With Jack The Ripper, showing original photographs from the investigation, is on at Swansea Grand Theatre on Wednesday at 7.30pm.
