Police found no evidence on Jack The Ripper pertaining to Mary Kelly or any of the other victims either. Jack was never caught.
The actual identify of Jack the Ripper is still unknown. There have been dozens of individuals suggested as the killer. While Mary Pearcy, who was later convicted for murdering her husband and child, is a possibility, there's no real evidence definitively linking her with the Ripper murders.
The first victim of Jack The Ripper is Mary Ann Nichols.
The police at the time couldn't do much. The Jack the Ripper Murders were investigated by two police forces - The Metropolitan Police, whose headquarters were at Scotland Yard, and the City Police, who had responsibility for the one square mile of the City of London. The Metropolitan Police investigated the murders of Mary Nichols, Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride and Mary Kelly, and the City of London Police investigated the murder of Catherine Eddowes, who was murdered in Mitre Square, which was on their territory.
She was the first canonical victims killed by Jack the ripper on 31st August 1888.

Jack the Ripper did not get to America. He continued to kill long after the death of Mary Kelly in November of 1888. He was in London all along.
She was the 5th believed to have been killed by Jack the ripper. She turned to prostitution when her husband died in an explosion.
Mary Jane Kelly was killed on 9th November 1888 in Whitechapel by Jack the Ripper
Mary Jane Kelly who was murdered on 9 November 1888, is the woman listed as the last confirmed kill for Jack the ripper but this does not mean she was the last person he murdered.
Her throat was cut. That is how all of the canonical five were killed.
The Jack the Ripper deaths occurred in 1888. There is some uncertainty about which murder victims at the time died at the hands of Jack the Ripper, but he is thought to have killed at least three women: Mary Ann Nichols (31st August), Annie Chapman (8 September) and Catherine Eddowes (30 September).
The five canonical victims are Mary Ann Nichols, Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Catherine Eddows and Mary Kelly.
Her name was Mary Ann "Polly" Nichols and she was murdered when she was 43.
I wish there was a hard and fast answer to this question but there has been so much debate about which victims belonged to the killer we know as Jack The Ripper. There are different opinions on when he started and if he really disappeared. Most experts now believe that Mary Ann Nichols was not the first victim and Mary Kelly was not the last. We may never know for sure how many victims were killed by the Ripper.
There is some debate as to how many victims belonged to the killer Jack The Ripper. The 5 that are most commonly attributed to the Ripper is Mary Ann Nichols, Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Katherine Eddows, Mary Kelly. There were actually two murders earlier in the year of 1888 that are most likely the Ripper's also. And many up until the 1891 at least.
Jack the Ripper was a serial killer in England who targeted women in the mid-19th century(4/3/1888-2/13/1891). Jack the Ripper is also known as "The Whitechapel Murderer" and "Leather Apron". Because of the depression of the time, many violent acts - such as robbery, violence and alcohol - were committed. This is why people disagree over how many women he killed (5-11) but the official count is 5(Mary Ann Nichols, Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Cathrine Eddowes, and Mary Jane Kelly). Jack the Ripper sent letters to police and media about his killings. One letter received by George Lusk of the Whitechapel Vigilance Committee contained half of a human kidney, presumably from one of the victims.
Jack the ripper was a mass murderer who raped and killed prostitutes. He could have been a butcher but his knowledge on the human body (eg: when he took kidneys and dismembered Mary Jane Kelly's torso.) made it obvious that he was more of a doctor. ; )
Mary Ann Nichols was killed on 31 August 1888. This is the first wowan in the rippers case.
You might think that the ripper committed his last crime on November 9th 1888, with the demise of Mary Jane Kelly. Many researchers agree that Jack might get a new modus operandi and perhaps moved to another location. Wherever they think, we might conclude that the Jack the ripper killing stopped on November 9th 1888 for whatever the reason.

It could have been anyone but most historians think that it was Mary Jane Kelly. This is just one of many misconceptions that get passed on through books and the media. Scotland Yard knew Mary Kelly was not the last victim just as the felt strongly that Mary Jane Nickols was not the first. According to Patricia Cornwell's best seller 'Jack the Ripper Case Closed' the Ripper went on killing right into the early 20th century. After Kelly the papers stopped printing much about the notorious killer. Things cooled down and it appeared that the Ripper was gone.
The canonical victims are the 'original five' women that are most commonly associated with the Jack The Ripper killings. Mary Ann (Polly) Nichols, Annie Chapmen, Elizabeth Stride, Katherine Eddows and Mary Kelly. For reasons that are not clear the 'hoopla' over the Ripper crimes diminished greatly after the death of Mary Kelly. The killer kept on killing most likely for years but was mostly ignored by the press. But the detectives that worked the case know that the Ripper went nowhere. It does seem that after the Kelly murder his made some adjustments to his MO, possibly to avoid detection.
Unfortunately, the killer known as Jack The Ripper has become a legend. He is by far the most infamous serial killer of all time. The fact that he was never caught lends an air of mystery about him. This single killer has inspired books, movies, Ripper walks, and Ripper websights, and the interest seems to grow with each passing year. I think it is very sad that he is remembered, yet his victims seem almost inconsequential to the public. In the 1990's headstones were finally placed on the graves of Mary Ann Nichols, Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride and Mary Kelly, a long overdue memorial to the women that had the misfortune to cross paths with Jack The Ripper.
This question pops up periodically and gives substance to the theory that the Ripper was a cop and that's why Scotland Yard never made an arrest. Protecting one of their own. There was also the theory that Inspector Frederick Abberline was the Ripper, again, why there was no arrest. Of course almost anything is possible, but this theory is flawed. Abberline could not have been the Ripper for the simple fact that when the crimes were committed he was home with his wife of many years. If the Ripper was in fact a police officer, his behaviour would have aroused suspicion long before the murder of Mary Kelly.
He didn't. Jack The Ripper's crimes continued long after the murder of Mary Jane Kelly on November 9, 1888. Many believe the Ripper was still killing as late as 1891, and possibly after the turn of the 20th century.
