Default RipperCon 2018 is giving away swag!

Next RipperCon 2018 trivia question, with yet another special prize, all a precursor of the hour-long trivia contest that we will hold in Baltimore on the afternoon of Sunday, April 8.

Gut on Casebook Forums and Melisssa on our Facebook page, you've both won before so you are ineligible. One prize per customer is the rule going forward.

What is this man's real name?

Wow. That was fast!

I'll negotiate your prize on the side a little later, Mr. Linford. Meanwhile, very well done!

The photograph, incidentally, was taken in centennial year 1988 the same year that Michael Caine aka Maurice Micklewhite played Inspector Abberline in the film "Jack the Ripper."

In many ways, still one of the better film treatments of the Whitechapel murders given what is out there, and certainly the actor brought his usual believability to the role of Abberline.

Best regards

Chris

I owe you a prize, my good man. How about some newscuttings from 2000 when Sir Maurice Micklewhite received his knighthood from Her Majesty the Queen? If you are interested, I will need your mailing address and I will have them off to you. Send me a PM.

Best regards

Chris
