An odd (read: gruesome) question occurred to me, the other day: How many people has Jack the Ripper killed…in fiction?
That is, fictional victims besides the real life “canonical five” victims.
So far, I’ve got (with SPOILER TAGS)
*Pandora’s Box (Play, silent film, and Opera)
*Anno Dracula (1992 Novel)
*Star Trek (Episode “Wolf in the Fold”)
-At least 44 unnamed other women, over about 380 years.
Anyone else have any other entries? The only rule is that it has to be, in story, the same person/s who committed the 1888 London murders. No copycat killers, or merely Ripper-like characters need count.
“Catch him if you can!”
