New True Crime vs. Crime-in-the-Media Community
killer_culture is a community for those interested in true crime as well as related books, movies, television shows, etc. Anything related to true crime (even fictional) is welcome here: debates, discussions concerning TV shows, movies, books (Dexter, Criminal Minds, Forensic Files, Law & Order, Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, etc.), icons, questions, news articles, pictures, reviews, pretty much anything relevant is permitted!

We're looking for interested members, "fans" of various crime-based shows/movies/books/etc. to keep debates/discussions fresh and interesting and to get the ball rolling. We don't want to focus on just one show or just one subject or be an all icons/graphics community. We want it to be open to people from all fandoms and walks of life to discuss their likes/dislikes or ask questions (example: "how accurate would what Dexter did (by doing this) be?") or whatever your pleasure may be! If this turns into a "one-trick-pony", it's going to die fast, and we don't want that!

We're trying to stand out; since there are tons of true crime communities and tons of fandom communities. We're combining the two, in a sense!

If anyone has any questions, concerns or suggestions, contact me or the other mod, ar_poe.

Ripper's Last Victim?
Hey all, I'm new here. I don't see alot of activity in this section, so for the sake of killing time I shall try to spark new discussion.

Who here believes that Ms Kelly was the last victim, as opposed to those who believe the Ripper also murdered Claypipe Alice and Carroty Nell?

For those of you who respond, I'd like to know why you believe what you do.

Jack the Ripper
Hiya I'm new here and I'm a fan of unsolved murders like Jack the Ripper's. Currently I'm reading a novel about it. "Jack the Knife" by Virginia Baker. Anyone read it?
Since I read it and started talking(fangirling most likely) about Jack the Ripper to my classmates I seem to have influenced them to read similar topics.

By the way Im 14 years old from the Philippines. Gawd I'm too young. XDD.  

And uhm...last question....where do I find books about Jack the Ripper in the Philippines?*hates the unreliable bookstores*

I went to the library yesterday and found "Jack the Ripper - The Final Solution" by Stephen Knight. It was published in 1976 in Great Britain then the revised edition in 1984.

In the first chapter "New Light on an Old Mystery", he writes "For Jack the Ripper was not one one man, but three. Two killers and an accomplice".

Has ANYONE every heard this claim before and can explain to me?? I have never heard anything of Jack the Ripper being 3 people.

Thanx in advance

I am new to the community and I'm looking for some help.
I have written a play based on the Whitechapel Murders and I would love to get some insight from people who are interested in the events and the era in general.
The dialogue was difficult to write and when it had it's first reading (just a 20 minute of the 70 minute total) some people expressed concern that some of the language/ slang was too modern. I really want the lines to fit the mood of the piece and keep it proper.
The play is pseudo- historical (I have kept and discarded facts that work with the plot and condensed the events of four months into a "one moment in time" situation.
If anyone would like to read through the script and offer advice please contact me at gowestjack AT gmail dot com and introduce yourself.
Thank you.

The Gentleman
Hi all. I'm new to this community and this is my first submission... a digital painting I finished last night. I posted this in another LJ community, and it was recommended to me by one of its members that I check out this one as well. Cool little place this is.

This was something I was working on since it's Halloween time, and I wanted it to be done in time to enter it in a contest one of my Deviant Art communities is having. It's based on the unsolved case of Jack the Ripper, naturally enough, although I mean for the character of The Gentleman himself to be viewed much more abstractly than that. The Gentleman is a digital painting done in Photoshop CS. This took me a lot longer than usual.... that jacket of his and wanting to get it just right, mostly.

25 Sept: 1888
Dear Boss

I keep on hearing the police have caught me but they wont fix me just yet. I have laughed when they look so clever and talk about being on the right track. That joke about Leather Apron gave me real fits. I am down on whores and I shant quit ripping them till I do get buckled. Grand work the last job was. I gave the lady no time to squeal. How can they catch me now. I love my work and want to start again. You will soon hear of me with my funny little games. I saved some proper red stuff in a ginger beer bottle over the last job to write with but it went thick like glue and I cant use it. Red ink is fit enough I hope ha.ha. The next job I do I shall clip. The lady's ears off and send to the Police officers just for jolly wouldn't you. Keep this letter back till I do a bit more work then give it out straight. My knife's so nice and sharp I want to get to work right away if I get a chance.

Good luck.

Yours truly

Jack the Ripper

Don't mind me giving the trade name

Old Articles
A friend of mine gave me the book The Chronicle of Crime, it's a really interesting book, completely comprised of article archives from 1800 to the 1999, in what looks to be their original format from sketches to photographs as time goes on, etc. I love this thing.

I came upon this article early on and thought you might like it too. It'd be interesting if Greenaway had a son.

Mary/Marie? x-posted
This might sound like a bit of a dumb question.. but why is Mary Kelly sometimes referred to as Marie Kelly? IS she sometimes referred to as Marie? Or is that only Stephen Knight who does it?

First post here, as I just joined. I've been fascinated by the Ripper murders for quite some time now, but it was not until recently (in the sense of about half a year) I started researching them properly.

Well, what I was wondering was if anyone here has read Uncle Jack by Tony Williams. Although I myself wouldn't put all my trust in the theory, that points out a wealthy doctor related to the author as Jack the Ripper, it is quite interesting reading and I therefore wonder what other people think of the idea. Anyone?

Saucy Jacky is my favorite.
I'm new to the community. I am 17, from NJ, and you can call me Jacky. I've been obsessed by Jack the Ripper for some time now, and I'm pleased to find this community. Also, I found this really great, and everyone should go there, and talk to Saucy Jacky. It's kind of freakish, but quite amusing. I have to say, I found him a tad bit argumentative. Adieu.

Now this is more like it!

Hi all, I'm James and I'm 23, live in south London, been fascinated by the Whitechapel Murders since I was little (the Michael Caine miniseries on TV scared the crap out of me!)

Since the age of about 16 I've been reading and researching the Ripper murders avidly, although not consistently. I'd be very interested to hear everyone's thoughts on who he was, and their take on various theories.

In my head, the two most likely are Maybrick (simply because, on a scientific level and a textual level, it's impossible to fault that damn diary) and Tumblety (although for it to be Tumblety would make Mary Kelly be a SEPERATE murder)...

My brain is buzzing already!
