Whitechapel Murders – the Classic Cold Case

The killing of five women in the Whitechapel area of East London in 1888 remains the greatest and most horrendous of all unsolved murder mysteries. It is the classic ‘Cold Case’.

This work takes a novel look into the case from the perspective of the criminal investigation itself. In this approach, the more speculative and conspiracy theories surrounding the ‘Jack the Ripper’ crimes have been avoided. The reader is offered insights into these murders by employing the modern forensic techniques of geographical and offender profiling, which shed new light on these serial killings. 


Dr David Holding studied history at Manchester University before entering the teaching profession in the 1970s. He taught in both state and independent sectors. During this time, he continued historical research culminating in both a Master's degree and a Doctorate. Having previously studied law, David gained a Master of Law degree in Medical Law, which enabled him to transfer to teaching legal courses at university. Since retiring, David has concentrated his research and writing on various aspects of local history, legal trials, forensic science and medico-legal topics.
