A man who claims to be a distant relative to the infamous serial killer Jack the Ripper has unearthed a six-inch knife he believes belonged to “Uncle Jack,” a surgeon to Queen Victoria who lived in London during the murders. Tony Williams, his great-great-great-great nephew recently published a book, “Uncle Jack – A Victorian Mystery,” which includes an image of the knife. Williams found the knife along with three glass sides that contain smears of a uterus.
He told the Telegraph:
Williams is convinced of his uncle’s guilt: “When I began to look into this I found a terrible truth — that I was related to this serial killer.”
