Stride, nicknamed "Long Liz," was discovered dead about 1 a.m. in the Whitechapel district. A single clear-cut incision severed the main artery of her neck.
Less than an hour later, Eddowes' mutilated body was found. She was last seen talking with a man, presumably Jack the Ripper.
Authorities later received a package containing half a human kidney, probably Eddowes', accompanied by the "From Hell" letter, signed "Catch me when you Can."
The Ripper murders caused a panic and were the first to unleash a worldwide media frenzy.
The identity of Jack the Ripper, the most famous serial killer of all time, remains a mystery.
