Have Your Say: Another city link to ripper
WITH reference to the article about Antonia Alexander finding evidence that Jack the Ripper was Welsh surgeon Sir John Williams (Post, Sept 26).
In John Morris's book The Hand of a Woman, the author goes along with the theory that Sir John and Mary Kelly were lovers but the real Jack the Ripper was Sir John's wife, the Morriston-born Lizzie.
She was jealous of the affair and also could not conceive a child and killed these woman for womb revenge and eventual theft of the womb in some of the murders.
Lizzie had surgical experience from watching her husband carry out hysterectomy operations.
It is another interesting theory which goes along with Antonia's theory but gives a different twist.
