What are the victims names of Jack the Ripper?

There are many aspects of the Jack the Ripper case that are not simply black and white. There are still considerable areas of gray, or the unknown. The Ripper was never apprehended which makes it hard to get to the truth. Victim count is not a certainty. The five canonical victims are: Mary Ann "Polly" Nichols, Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Catherine Eddows and Mary Jane Kelly. My own opinion is that there were more victims than the five listed above. Serial killers that are not apprehended will continue to kill unless they develop health problems or finally grow too old for the hunt. It is now widely accepted that Martha Tabram was a Ripper victim, several weeks before Mary Ann Nichols. For many who have studied the Ripper's crimes, the murder of prostitute Frances Coles on February 13, 1891, in Swallow Gardens,Whitechapel, is most likely a victim of the Ripper.

Did Jack the Ripper kill only five people?

Five were proven, although some stories credit him with up to eleven In a probability no. Although most people believe that Mary Ann Nichols (aka:Polly) was the Ripper's first victim most experts say no. There were at least 2 murders that fit the profile as being Ripper murders. A prositute was found murdered in March of 1888 and another by the name of Martha Tabram was found murdered just weeks before Nichols. And although after the murder of Mary Jane Kelly the murders continued for years the publicity surrounding them was almost non-existant. The police knew about the later crimes but without the publicity and no arrest ever made this led to the idea that Jack the Ripper had stopped.
