Israel Schwartz

Posted: May 13, 2009 in Other Ripper Research
On the night of the "Double Event", a term which describes the murders of Elizabeth Stride and Catherine Eddowes on September 30, 1888, a Jewish man witnessed Elizabeth Stride being attacked by a man in Berner Street just minutes before she was murdered. He was watching the attack with much interest until another man who was hiding in a doorway smoking a pipe, began following Schwartz. Schwartz saw that the man was following him and began walking away from the scene in order to escape a possible violent attack on him by this "Ripper Accomplice." Schwartz may be only one of two witnesses who got a clear look at the Ripper on the night that Stride was murdered by the East End "Ripper." Here is a photo of said Israel Schwartz:
