Is Jack the Ripper buried at Toowong Cemetery in Brisbane?

Brisbane urban legends, from ghosts to gold.

Toowong Cemetery in Brisbane
Could Brisbane be the final resting place for the world’s most famous serial killer? Some historians seem to think so. 

Rumours have long persisted that Jack the Ripper jumped ship, literally, and sailed to Australia from London after committing his murders. 

Some “Ripperologists” believe Jack was in fact Walter Thomas Porriott buried alongside his wife Bessie at Toowong Cemetery. Porriott was in England when all five confirmed murders were committed and when he sailed to Australia in November 1888 the murders stopped. Porriott was also known to be a misogynist – he particularly hated prostitutes. 

A few years ago the grave was vandalised, with some commenting it could have been devil worshippers trying to raise Jack’s ghost.
