Retired murder squad detective Trevor Marriott brings his show Jack The Ripper - A 21st Century Investigation, to Derby’s Guildhall Theatre on Thursday, March 28.
The show is touring the country as we reach the 125th anniversary year of arguably the most infamous unsolved murders in British criminal history.
Trevor Marriott is a leading Ripper expert who, since 2002, has been conducting a cold case re-investigation into The Whitechapel Murders of 1888, which were attributed to a fearsome killer who came to be known as Jack the Ripper.
For the past 125 years, this mystery has captivated the imagination of people worldwide and still does today.
There have been over 100 books published and numerous films and television documentaries. Many have over-dramatised and distorted the facts to the point that the public now accepts the fiction more readily than the facts.
Trevor Marriott has now concluded his long and protracted cold case investigation with startling results which now have completely dispelled many of the original theories which have been readily accepted as being fact for 125 years.
It was generally accepted that the killer only killed five prostitutes between August and November 1888.
However, Trevor Marriott uncovered other murders outside of those dates both in London and in The USA and Germany.
This led to a new suspect emerging who had never been mentioned before who had been arrested for committing a Ripper like murder in the USA.
Trevor Marriott now believes that all of The Whitechapel murders were not committed by the same killer and in fact Jack the Ripper may have been nothing more than a myth created by sensational journalism at the time of the murders.
Jack the Ripper- A 21st Century Investigation is a two-hour show hosted by Trevor Marriott himself where he talks about and describes his lengthy investigation and discloses the new startling results.
Tickets to see the show at the Guildhall Theatre are available by calling the box office for further details on 01332 255800.
