Sir Francis Thompson is currently Jack the Ripper of 2015, until next year they believe it to be someone else.
He loved opium and let's not forget the hookers. The wonderful ladies of the night.

Didn't finish and didn't even come close. Some of these poems go straight over your head and other ones are so simple that you wonder if they were written by the same person.

Victorian England everyone was addicted to hookers, so keep looking for a mysterious villain.
