He didn't. Jack the Ripper was never caught.

Jack the Ripper sent a letter to the police saying at the end "Yours truly JACK THE RIPPER" ever since then it has been his alias

Police did not possess the tools needed to catch this type of killer. The science was just not there. It had nothing to do with conspiracies involving the royal family or Scotland Yard cover ups, the Ripper case needed modern forensics.

Jack the Ripper was never found.

Catching criminals was the job of Scotland Yard's police force. When the Ripper proved uncatchable of course police were criticized for 'letting him get away.' Most people don't know that the police tried very hard in their pursuit of the Ripper. They just did not possess the knowledge and tools needed to catch the type of killer the Ripper was. Chances are very good that Jack would have been apprehended had the police had modern crime solving techniques.

Some Ripperologists believe that the police actually did capture Jack the Ripper. Some say the police were to blame for not cathing him. The reports of Jack the Ripper were collected and reported by the police, but then the different newspapers with their political influences slightly distorted the stories to give them their own effect.

Police found no evidence on Jack The Ripper pertaining to Mary Kelly or any of the other victims either. Jack was never caught.

Jack the ripper was the first serial killer to reach the media. The world has eyes on him. It was a scandal about the condition the police was at that time. There were no false starts in this case. There was nothing to go on but the remains of the victims. Even today it takes quite some time to catch a murderer on the run, but in the case of Jack the Ripper, there were many aspects police today would not come across.

Scotland Yard never claimed to have captured Jack The Ripper and in fact were ridculed for their inablity to catch him. It resulted in many conspiracy theories, some involving the royal family, the police force and even Inspector Fredrick Abberline.

He killed and ripped woman's bodies. The police received a boasting letter from a man claiming to be the killer. It was signed Jack The Ripper.

The serial killer from London's Whitechapel district in the late 19th century gave himself this name in letters sent to the Metropolitan Police at Scotland Yard, and to the local press. It is not uncommon for serial killers to correspond with police in a risky game of cat and mouse. The goal, to prove he is smarter that those who are trying to catch him, namely, the police.

The police used many techniques to try to catch Jack the Ripper that were mainly traditional and involved trial and error. One of the methods used by the police was the questioning of eyewitness's. This was done to some success but the people questioned were often vague and did not give away much information. An example of this happening would be Elizabeth Long's statement where she is clearly unsure about what the murderer looked like, "He looked to me like a foreigner, as well as I could make out." These eyewitness accounts often were either useless or sent the police out looking for someone who was not Jack the Ripper and therefore wasted police time. The main way of catching Jack the Ripper was thought to be using local appeals. This was because the police believed that he was living in the area.

The London police never held the opinion that Jack the Ripper was murdered... he just stopped killing for reasons known only to him.

The killer refered to himself by several different names, Jack The Ripper and Saucy Jack are just a couple. He obviously had a flare for the dramatic. Jack The Ripper has become almost legend thanks in part to that 'oh so appropriated' name.

They printed up fliers, added extra police to patrol the streets of the East End, but the technology was not advanced enough to catch him. Nobody that has done any research into the crimes of JTR can say that Scotland Yard did not try their best to catch the man. There were many in law enforcement, from the lowest "bobby" to the highest detective, that put 110% into his capture. Unfortunately, the Victorian era did not have the science yet to catch a killer of his sophistication. I'm sure Abberline went to his grave with feelings of frustration at not being able to apprehend the biggest case of his career.

The Jack the Ripper Murders presented the Victorian Police with a type of crime that they had little experience of handling. The secrecy of the criminal elements greatly hampered the police as they struggled to find the killer. Another aspect of the case was that the police who conducted the investigation into the Jack the Ripper murders lacked many of the techniques that their 21st century counterparts would take for granted in a murder investigation of this kind. Fingerprinting, Crime Scene Investigation, modern forensics and even Crime Scene photography were simply not used in police investigations at the time of the Jack the Ripper Murders.

Frederick George Abberline - Chief Inspector for the London Metropolitan Police.

Thomas Cutbush was named as the Ripper by the Sun newspaper on the 13th February 1894. The possibility of Thomas Cutbush being Jack the Ripper was thoroughly investigated by the police at the time, and shown to be without foundation.

The physical evidence in the Jack case, was evidence within the victims not a evidence surfaced against Jack the ripper since he was not aprended. Prostitutes were slashed and bloody letters were sent to the police.

police was not as affective as they are now and there was no way of finding pepoles DNA
