Thomas Murray

Robert W. House, while conducting research at the London Metropolitan Archives in London, discovered an interesting individual named Thomas Murray. Murray had been admitted to an asylum, 8 June 1889. He was 30 years of age, single, with no occupation, though had previously been a bottler. His residence was given as 11 Burdett Street, Devons Road East. The cause of his insanity was given as sexual and alcoholic excesses, and he was described as dangerous to others. His sister, Ann Murray, stated that he was dangerous to live with, and repeatedly threw furniture around and threatened to kill her and their mother. He also threatened violence to children in the street, because he believed they were calling him Jack the Ripper. He also believed his neighbours called him Jack the Ripper. It was said of him, 'He remains very suspicious, and when alone says he hears voices'.
