Jack the Ripper Never Existed, Claims Top Detective

Trevor Marriott, a former homicide detective from the UK, believes that he has solved one of the world's greatest mysteries since Victorian times- the identity of Jack the Ripper.

Marriott, formerly of the Bedforshire police department, has devoted years of his life studying Jack the Ripper, performing a detailed case-by-case review of the evidence.  Evidence, which Marriott contends, has been tainted by exaggeration.

“The facts of this case have been totally distorted over the years,” said Marriott in a newspaper story published over the weekend. “The general public have been completely misled by any number of authors and publishers."

According to Marriott, numerous murders of the era which were similar in nature were attributed to Jack the Ripper, in spite of flimsy evidence.  Thanks to the former detective's professional credentials, he has been able to obtain access to documents which are unavailable to the general public.  Based on his findings, Marriott believes many of the murders were committed by a German merchant seaman named Carl Feigenbaum, who was executed in New York in 1896 after being caught fleeing the scene of a Ripper-style murder committed there.

“The reality is there was just a series of unsolved murders, and they would have sunk into oblivion many years ago, but for a reporter called Thomas Bulling,” stated Marriott.  And therein lies the origin of the myth.

Bulling was a sensationalistic crime reporter who had many police contacts at Scotland Yard. In 1888 Bulling was working for the London-based Central News Agency, where he was paid to supply crime stories for newspapers.  By signing one of his stories "Jack the Ripper", Bulling unwittingly created an icon that would endure for 125 years.

"Around 80 per cent of the books about him have a picture of a chap on the front stalking the streets of London in a long black cape and a top hat," explains Marriott.  “They were the clothes of an upper class, wealthy man."  He adds that anyone who skulked around Whitechapel wearing such a get-up would be an irresistible target for highwaymen and ruffians.

“It wasn’t just one of the most crime-riddled areas of London, it was one of the worst areas in the country. It’s a false image that has been created by the likes of Hollywood film makers."

In regards to busting the myth of Jack the Ripper, the former homicide detective points to new evidence which proves that the organs of the victims weren't removed at the scene of the crime, but after the bodies were taken to the mortuary.  Since these murders took place during the dawning of a the age of modern surgery, it was not unusual for medical students to "steal" bodyparts for research purposes.

Marriott is currently in the middle of a 36-date theatre tour of the UK with his one man show, “Jack The Ripper A 21st Century Investigation”, in which he discusses his findings and presents forensic evidence which he used to reach his conclusion.

The Incest Capital of the World?

At the far eastern edge of Kentucky, nestled in Appalachia, resides Letcher County. In spite of its isolation and poverty (approximately 30% of the county's population lives below the poverty line), Letcher County has managed to grow at an impressive rate, from a population of just 9,172 in 1900 to a present-day population of nearly 25,000. However, even if Letcher County tripled or quadrupled its present population, there's still a pretty good chance that virtually all of the county's inhabitants would be related to each other-- thanks to one particularly fertile family whose astounding rate of reproduction can put even the friskiest rabbit to shame.

Around the year 1900, Letcher County was the home of a man by the name of Jason L. Webb, who made national headlines for having the one of the largest families in the world. According to newspaper reports of the era, Jason had 19 children, 175 grandchildren, and 100 great-grandchildren. Perhaps even more impressive was his b…

Black Eyed Children Finally Explained!

Last month, we received an email from a reader in Michigan, in response to our article debunking the "black eyed children" phenomenon, which links these so-called "paranormal" entities to recreational drug use.  The reader, whom we will call Onizuka in order to protect his identity, claims that not only is he familiar with BEKs- but that he was one.  "Onizuka" agreed to speak with JOTB via Yahoo instant messenger.  Ironically, this conversation took place on 4/20, a date which is embraced by those who are part of the drug culture.

JOTB:Thanks for taking the time to speak with us.  In one of your previous emails, you stated that you were a "black eyed kid".  What did you mean by that?

Onizuka:  Last November I was driving late at night at turned on the radio and came across an episode of Coast to Coast AM and the topic of the show was black eyed children.  It convinced me to do some research on the topic, and that's how I found your article.  A…

Jesus Campos Disappears; Las Vegas Mystery Deepens

Yesterday we delved into the mystery surrounding the Las Vegas shooting and the unanswered questions surrounding Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos, such as his peculiar GoFundMe page and the fact that his home is being protected by a private armed security guard. Independent investigative journalists have revealed that the company protecting Campos-- identified as "On Scene Investigation & Security, Inc."-- is a Las Vegas-based company whose business license expired in January of 2017.

Also adding fuel to the conspiracy theories was the report by investigative journalist Laura Loomer claiming that Campos' name has been "scrubbed" from the casino's employee database.

It was also reported earlier this week that gunman Stephen Paddock's Reno home was broken into.

But things have just taken a new bizarre twist. Gateway Pundit just announced that Jesus Campos is missing.

Campos was scheduled to appear on Sean Hannity's show on Fox News but, a…
