Alfred Parent

Parent, a Frenchman and resident of Bacon's Hotel, Fitroy Square, came under suspicion on 25 November 1888 after he offered prostitute Annie Cook a sovereign for sex and five sovereigns to spend the night with him. As the usual price for such services was about sixpence, Annie became suspicious of the man and reported him to the police. She told the police that she thought the reason he had offered more money than was usual for her services was so that he could get her indoors and murder her. Parent was able to prove to the police that he had nothing to do with the Whitechapel murders. He was born in 1834 and was 54 years of age at the time of the murders, and was described as 5 ft 6"tall, with white hair, whiskers and moustache.
