Catherine Eddowes

Catherine Eddowes (14 April 1842 – 30 September 1888) is the fourth of the canonical five victims of the notorious unidentified serial killer known as Jack the Ripper, who is believed to have killed and mutilated a minimum of five women in the Whitechapel and Spitalfields districts of London from late August to early November 1888. Eddowes was the second person murdered in the early hours of Sunday 30 September; a night which already had seen the murder of Elizabeth Stride less than an hour earlier.
