1. Executive summary
The purpose of this certificate is to help the reader understand what can determine a man to kill and who were the most famous people who become serial killers, or crimes commited to celebrities and even to heads of state.
To conclude my work, I mainly included a web-based research, and I also read some magazines and journals, in which I could find significant information for my paper.
In the first part, the main interest went on searching for data of most well known murderers as Jack the Ripper,the unidentified serial killer who terrified the whole London in 1888, Charles Manson,an American criminal, Albert Fish, again an American serial killer, cannibal and child molester and last but not least Ted Bundy, a serial killer who murdered 36 young women. I gathered information about their lives and about the murders that they had committed.
Next, a briefly review of the organised crime in the U.S.A. and the UK. I looked for some definitions of the organised crime,and read some BBC interviews regarding this subject.
All these are being followed by some notorious murders and deaths. In order to describe these famous deaths, I thought I should choose personalities from different areas of celebrity, therefore I included Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States of America, John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States of America, Malcom X, an African American Muslim minister, public speaker, and human rights activist, Martin Luther King, American clergyman, activist and prominent leader in the African-American civil rights movement, John Lennon, an Academy Award-winning English rock musician, singer, and songwriter and Tupac Shakur, an American rapper.Furthermore, there are presented some psychologycal features that can be met when portraying a serial killer and the review of some movies that are based on murders.
Finally, I tried to formulate my own point of view about the subject I have chosen, taking into consideration all the information that I gathered and included in this certificate.
2.1. Jack the Ripper
Jack the Ripper is a pseudonym given to an unidentified serial killer active in the largely impoverished Whitechapel area and adjacent districts of London, England, in late 1888. The name originated in a letter sent to the London Central News Agency by someone claiming to be the murderer.
The victims were women earning income as prostitutes. Most victims' throats were slit, after which the bodies were mutilated. The removal of internal organs from three of the victims led some officials at the time of the murders to propose that the killer possessed anatomical or surgical knowledge.
Newspapers, whose circulation had been growing during this era, bestowed widespread and enduring notoriety on the killer because of the savagery of the attacks and the failure of the police to capture the murderer.Because the killer's identity has never been confirmed, the legends surrounding the murders have become a combination of genuine historical research, folklore, and pseudohistory. Many authors, historians, and amateur detectives have proposed theories about the identity of the killer and his victims.
