It was great. Theres no doubt 100% they got their man, he died in 1971 though and his family seemed fine about helping especially when they heard he had murdered 2 skoolgirl when he was 15 back in Wales. This cold case should be shut in the next 2 years It will make a great movie He got away with the first murder, the whole village didnt believe he could be capable, they found the 2nd victim in his attic shortly after. He got 20 years. Was stupidly let out in 41 and did his time in the army(unlike that other cowardly murderer at the time John Haigh) Started a family in London In the 60's when he usually had a fight with the wife, his daughter remembers him leaving the house to cool down in case he'd kill the wife. Lived and worked in the area where the murders occurred, unfortunately for the authorities he had changed his name Around this time 6 women were murdered, their front teeth were taken, he took mementos from the skoolgirls back in the 20's too
One of the prime suspects at the time Mungo Ireland, commited suicide and there were no murders after that. The head investigator went off on holiday and it was wound down The murderer probably stopped now to protect his family and also cos he got bone cancer and probably didnt have the strength for the women
btw this is the guy
Harold Jones(Harry Stevens)
The Crime & Investigation channel's Fred Dinenage: Murder Casebook put forward the theory that the killer could have been Harold Jones, a convicted murderer from Wales. Jones killed two girls in 1921 in the Welsh town of Abertillery. Because he was 15 at the time, he was not liable for the death penalty, instead receiving a life sentence. He was released 20 years later for exemplary behaviour. In 1941, at the age of 35, after being released from Wandsworth prison, he is believed to have returned to Abertillery, and visited the graves of his early victims. By 1947, Jones was living in Fulham, London. All the Stripper murders had similar features to his early murders: no sexual assault, but extreme violence was inflicted on the victims. Due to poor record-keeping, he was never considered as a possible suspect by the police.
The writer Neil Milkins, in Who was Jack the Stripper? (2011), also concluded that Jones was the perpetrator. While researching Jones for his book Every Mother's Nightmare, Milkins had traced the murderer's movements: "[H]e turned up in Fulham in the late 1940s calling himself Harry Stevens, and stayed at that address in Hestercombe Avenue until 1962, at which point he disappeared again. I came across the Jack the Stripper case on the internet and realised that in the same three years Jones' whereabouts remained unknown - 1962 to 1965 - a number of prostitutes had been murdered in the same west London area."
