    The Mafia? Serial killers? Pirates? No, it's the latest theory on "Who was Jack The Ripper?"

    I love true crime, especially unsolved serial killer cases, but Jack the Ripper never quite captured my attention. I do remember reading one interesting theory that the killer was a member of the Royal Family who was committed to an insane asylum immediately after the murders stopped.

    My favorite unsolved serial killer case is, without a doubt, the Zodiac Killer.

    The Mafia is alive and well or, in this particular case, pretty much completely dead.

    Do you have a preferred potential perp? My money (but not a lot of it) would be on Louis Joseph Myers.
