Dr. Morgan Davis

Davis was born in 1854 and lived at various addresses in London, Kings Street, Black Lion Yard, and 10 Goring Street, Houndsditch, he trained in Aberdeen, and was a house surgeon at the London hospital. While visiting one of his patients, Dr Evans, Davis began to discuss the Whitechapel murders, he then proceeded to give a graphic description, complete with demonstration, of how the killer murdered then sodomized his victims. Dr Roslyn D'Onston, who shared a room with Evans, witnessed this demonstration and became suspicious when he learned from the journalist W.T Stead, that Mary Kelly had been sodomized. He wrote to the police with his suspicions, and accused Dr Davis of being the Ripper, claiming Davis was a man of powerful frame, and according to the lines on his sallow face of strong sexual passions and was a woman hater. There is no evidence however that Davis was ever questioned or suspected at the time by the police. There is also no evidence any of the victims were sodomized. Davis retired to Aberystwyth where he died in 1920.
