Bloodstains – Jeff Mudgett
I’m fascinated by the premise of this book on many levels. On the one hand we have a man who unsuspectingly finds out he is the grandson of Herman Webster Mudgett, better known by the name H.H. Holmes, the notorious serial killer that built the Murder Castle during the Chicago World’s Fair and killed who knows how many people. And if that wasn’t enough, there is the theory that this same H.H. Holmes left the US, went over to London and continued to commit his acts of murder, but this time under the name, Jack the Ripper. Could such a thing be true? Is it possible that two notorious serial killers could in fact be the same person? The truth is stranger than fiction and there is indeed evidence to support this claim.
I can’t even imagine what it must be like to discover Holmes is part of your family history. To have his personal diaries, his actual notes, and even his confessions in your own hands. Shocking would be an understatement. But then, what to find out or make the case that there could be more to the story? Have other Ripper experts not followed this line because it’s just too outrageous, or did they not have access to the same material?
I haven’t actually had a chance to read this book, but as soon as time permits, I’m all over this thing. The whole thing is just so strange, so unusual, so fantastic. Could Jeff Mudgett actually have the answer for all these years? Is this the crucial piece of evidence everyone’s been waiting for? Experts have already said the handwriting between Holmes and the Ripper is a match. Does Jeff Mudgett and his bizarre family line have the ability give yet more like to Holmes and thus solve the mystery of the Ripper?
And when will an investigation of the old Murder Castle site take place? It’s been hinted at. It’s been alluded to. If anyone has more details don’t be shy about throwing them out!
