The Contributions of Dragan Milovanovic to the Understanding and Explanation of "Jack the Ripper"

Matthew C. Peterson, Northeastern Illinois University

Unsolved crimes are always filled with theory, opinion, and speculation. Jack the Ripper case is no stranger to these things. Theorists have spent much time and resources in attempt to explain the reasoning behind such horrific acts. Since the yet solved murders were well thought out crimes that involved much preparation we truly will never know the reasoning. The only way to go about explaining Jack the Ripper is by examining the way in which a person could come to such acts. Through using the postmodern way of thinking as developed by Dragan Milovanovic, Bruce Arrigo, and Staurt Henry I will illustrate the thought process of serial killers such as Jack the Ripper.
