The Hunt For The 60s Ripper by Robin Jarossi
Frank Sinatra, The Beatles and The Who were all performing in the Queensway and Shepherds Bush areas of London in 1964-65.
But in those same areas, during the early hours, a meticulous serial killer was stalking local prostitutes and dumping their naked bodies on the streets.
Seven, possibly eight, women fell victim making this killer more prolific than Jack the Ripper 77 years previously. His grim spree sparked the biggest police manhunt in history.
But why did such a massive hunt fail? And why has such a traumatic case been largely forgotten today?
One detective makes the astonishing new claim that all the original evidence from the crime scenes has been destroyed.
Using secret police papers, crime reconstructions and interviews with contemporary police experts along with insights from the world's leading geographical profiler, The Hunt for the 60s Ripper revisits this chilling case. What do modern experts say about the case today? And why did the leading detective, John du Rose, claim to know all along who the killer was?
