Mary Jane Kelly — Remembering the Victims of the Whitechapel Killer

Mary Jane Kelly is the final known victim of Jack the Ripper. This is about her life.

Mary Jane Kelly’s murder is by far the most researched out of all the Jack the Ripper victims. And this is probably due to two things. The first is that her killing was the most brutal and the second is we know so little about who she actually was.
