    (May 27, 1850-November 15, 1892)
    Born in Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom
    Doctor turned serial killer
    Killed four London prostitutes with strychnine
    Nicknamed 'the Lambeth Poisoner'
    He launched his criminal career in medical school with arson, blackmail and providing illegal abortions.
    He had a shotgun wedding with Flora Brooks after impregnating her, then almost killing her while performing an abortion (1876).
    After the suspicious deaths of his wife, his lover, and two patients, he was finally convicted of killing Daniel Stott, the husband of his mistress, and was sentenced to life in Joliet Prison in Illinois (1891).
    He was pardoned ten years later, allegedly as a result of his brother bribing the governor.
    After killing the prostitutes in London, he tried to blackmail several doctors, accusing them of the crimes.
    His last words at his execution were allegedly, 'I am Jack the....'
    His blackmail letters included enough inside information that he made it easy for the police to identify him as the killer.
    He was hanged at Newgate Prison.
    Given that he was in prison at the time of the Ripper murders, he presumably was not Jack.
    Some investigators think that the story of his last words was a macabre joke by hangman James Billington.
