Mary was exhausted. She couldn't remember a time that she had been this tired. She felt like she had been running forever without any time to think or breathe. But she still needed to work. It was 11pm and she had a good two hours still to get several more customers before she dropped from exhaustion.
-Jack the Ripper, 1888
Note: I was inspired to write this post after the first stop of the Serial Killer hunt. I've only made it to the first stop because, to be honest, it kind of grossed me out. So you have been warned-this hunt is not for the faint of heart! Most of the above I made-up with a couple of true facts thrown in.
What fascinates me about the Jack the Ripper case is not the murders nor the fact that they never found the killer, but the Whitechapel district. There were approximately 80,000 people living in Whitechapel in 1888 which is shocking because the area is quite small. You can almost imagine the horrific conditions as you're walking through the Soul Productions sim (so much so that I just wanted to take my pics and get the hell out of there!). If you would like more info you can see the movie From Hell or read the graphic novel of the same name.
And now, I will close the book on Jack the Ripper and hopefully never think about it again!
