Default Jack the Alien

Someone calling themselves, "George W" has posted the following question on Yahoo's Ask website, and hopefully some of the more seasoned Ripperologists can answer this one for him,

Is Jack the Ripper really dead, is he an alien?



I kid ye not.

Well now, he might of been an illegal alien.

As for him being dead. Well the kids who sing the song "JTR is Dead" thought so. I wonder how they knew? I think the children of Whitechapel might be the missing piece of the investigation. I believe that some of them were out and about at night and probably saw a thing or too.

Anyways they thought JTR was dead and they seemed to be in the know. So you can tell George W that the Children of Whitechapel said Jack The Ripper was dead.

Jack The Ripper is dead
he's lying in his stinky bed
he slit his throat in one stroke
Jack the Ripper is DEAD.....

Hi George

I don't know about that variation of the rhyme but the old children's song that I have heard before is

Jack the Ripper's dead,
And lying on his bed.
He cut this throat
With Sunlight soap.
Jack the Ripper's dead.


That children's song can be heard on the recording of Frogg Moody's musical Yours Truly, Jack the Ripper.

All the best

Chris

Hi George

There may be more than one variation of the rhyme. In fact knowing the way folk traditions work, if it is something that is passed by word of mouth, such things probably do get modified along the way...
