Award winning historian and author Neil R. Storey explores some of the lesser known public scares and murders ascribed to Jack the Ripper and some of the lesser known suspects offered up as the Whitechapel murderer both during and in the years post 1888. After studying both pre and post grad at UEA, Neil became a social and military historian specializing in societal impacts – notably crime, medicine and warfare.
