A direct descendant of Jack the Ripper's last victim tells her ancestor's storyBetween August and November 1888, five women were murdered in Whitechapel, and for more than 100 years the murders have remained among one of the world's greatest unsolved crimes. Author Antonia Alexander is a direct descendant of Jack the Ripper's last victim, Mary Kelly. Antonia's grandmother, also named Mary, has now decided to tell the story of Mary Kelly, her own great grandmother, via Antonia. Rummaging through her grandmother's belongings, Mary found a small wooden box containing Mary Kelly's locket. The locket contained a picture of a man; a man she had always thought was her great grandfather. Now she realizes that the photo contained in the locket is that of Sir John Williams. Here we hear for the first time ever the true compelling story of Mary Kelly and her relationship to the latest Ripper suspect--Sir John Williams. There were stories told to Mary by her grandmother--stories about Mary Kelly and her affair with a prominent doctor by the name of John Williams, stories that she kept to herself until now. This is possibly the last chance she has to tell the world what she knows: what really happened to her great grandmother.
