Rippercast: The Whitechapel Murders Podcast
Mary Pearcey and 'Jill the Ripper'
February 15th, 2010
Duration: 01:19:34

This Episode welcomes author and researcher Sarah Beth Hopton for a discussion of the 1890 murder of Phoebe Hogg and her infant child; a crime comitted by Mary Eleanor Wheeler Pearcey, who has often been suggested as "Jill the Ripper". Listen in as we discuss the Pearcey murder case, her life, trial and execution, as well as talk about the widely disregarded theory that she somehow could have been involved in the Whitechapel murders. Also covered are the roles of police and medical men who were involved in both the Ripper and Pearcey investigations. Special guests joining Sarah Beth Hopton on this episode are Martin Fido and Robert McLaughlin. www.sarahbethhopton.com
