Is Australia's Walter Porriott Jack the Ripper?

Channel 9 Australia - Monday 15 September 2008.
The Today Program examines
the two possible
Australian connections
to Jack the Ripper -
Walter Porriott and Frederick Bailey Deeming.



There has been intense recent media speculation in Australia that the grave of Walter Porriott in Brisbane's Toowong Cemetery is the final resting place of Jack the Ripper.


Ripperologists and historians Paul Tully and Jack Sim appeared on the Channel 9 Today program around Australia on 15 September 2008 to explore the possibility that Porriott - who left London for Australia on the day of the last Ripper murder on 9 November 1888 - was the Butcher of Whitechapel.

Paul Tully and Jack Sim are not convinced that Walter Porriott is Jack the Ripper and rate the likelihood as "exceedingly low", principally because Porriott's modus operandi as a criminal conman, impersonator and fraudster is quite different from the modus operandi of Jack the Ripper.

But the Porriott theory - first raised by his own family in 1997 - has never been disproved and therefore cannot be totally dismissed, with Porriott remaining a suspect in the East End killings.




Do you have a theory on who

Jack the Ripper really was?
