Jack the Ripper: Mystery of Mysteries since 1888

Jack the Ripper: Never identified.
Jack the Ripper will be in focus at 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 28.

He was one of the most infamous serial murder cases in the world. 

His identify is by far the most intriguing aspect of the murders. 

But within this mystery are countless other mysteries. Was he a doctor? 

How was he able to commit the murders without being caught? 

Why did he stop killing? 

These and many other aspects of this case will be discussed by Dr. Mark R. Vogel, a clinical psychologist and self-confessed “Ripperologist” who has studied the case and visited the murder sites for himself. 

Registration is requested.
