American Ripper (History) – Premieres 11th July
A crime documentary in the similar vein of Hunting Hitler and JFK Declassified: Tracking Oswald, where Jeff Mudgett, the great grandson of notorious US serial killer H.H. Holmes, believes his ancestor was also Jack The Ripper.
To back his claim Jeff enlists the help of former CIA operative Amaryllis Fox, and together the begin to trawl through the history of Holmes to see if they can find any links between the two murderers.
The show is an interesting watch though the whole Jack The Ripper aspect doesn’t appear to be half as interesting as Holmes Murder Castle hotel which is briefly touched upon.
