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.

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.
