On August 30, 123 years ago, the man known all over the world as Jack The Ripper, made his first victim. A detective, expert in the Jack The Ripper case, says that his name was Carl Feigenbaum and that he was a German trader executed on the electric chair in 1894, in the Sing Sing prison in New York. Carl’s lawyer also thought that he was the infamous serial killer Jack The Ripper.
Jack The Ripper expert Trevor Marriott, a former homicide detective, reached the conclusion that the German trader was probably Jack The Ripper after he studied the documents about the 200 Jack The Ripper suspects. As the random dates of the killings indicates a traveler, when he studied the archives of the Reiher ship owned by North Deutsche Line, who was in the marina each time Jack The Ripper killed someone, the detective stumbled upon the name Carl Feigenbaum each time. This means that Carl was always mentioned on the ship’s manifest. Carl was executed six years after the London murders, on the Sing Sing electric chair, accused of killing his landlord.
Carl’s lawyer was also convinced that he is Jack Th Ripper, the killer who horrified London, and he also told his to the New York media at that time. Why he was so convinced that Carl Feigenbaum was Jack The Ripper ? Because he confessed to suffering from a disease which periodically made him mutilate and kill any woman that crossed his path. ” For years I am suffering from a unique disease that makes me mutilate and kill each woman I see, without being able to control myself” Carl allegedly said.
The Sing Sing description of death row inmate Carl Feigenbaum sounds like this: Age: 54, Skin: regular. Hair: Dark brown. Thin throwat
Based on the description provided by Sing Sing records, the Marriott created a sketch of Carl Feigenbaum, the man he claims to be Jack The Ripper, a sketch published 123 years after the horrible London murders.
