About Jack the Ripper - The Jury is out

Was the last man hanged in Dundee really Jack the Ripper? You decide ! Guilty or Not Guilty?

Join us for ‘The People versus Jack the Ripper©’, a captivating, new presentation of facts and research put together through many years of painstaking investigation by journalist Michael Mulford. Michael lays out the facts that he believes proves the identity of Jack the Ripper. The entire audience forms a jury and votes - guilty or not guilty - based on the evidence presented. Then, after a short break, the result of the vote will be revealed, which is followed by a question and answer session.

The event lasts around two hours, contains some strong language (no swear words) but does not contain any graphic images. A fascinating afternoon is guaranteed!

Michael is a native of Dundee, and was the first crime reporter in the history of The Dundee Courier. He has held senior appointments in journalism, television and Government public relations. He was Parliamentary Correspondent of The Scotsman before joining STV as an onscreen reporter, rising to Producer-Director. He taught journalism and television production in the old Eastern bloc including Romania, Ukraine and the People’s Republic of Moldova. Michael returned to Scotland to serve a four-year sentence which saw him in every jail in Scotland………as Head of Communications at the Scottish Prison Service! The last eleven years before retiring were spent as principal spokesperson on Military Search and Rescue events.

Michael has done this presentation to a variety of audiences from village halls to the United Nations Commission in The Netherlands, the Whitechapel Society in London, and the British Academy of Forensic Sciences.
