Richard A. Patterson
Australian author and researcher, Richard Patterson, first saw that the English poet Francis Thompson could be the Ripper in 1997. The 47-year-old has travelled the world researching his suspect, including visiting the Burns Library in Boston, which holds the world's largest collection of Thompson's work and letters. He has researched in Lancashire, Thompson's birthplace, and London's East End, the scene of the murders. On the strength of his theory, Patterson has twice been a guest speaker at the annual UK Jack the Ripper Conference, in 2005 in Brighton and more recently, in 2016, in London. Patterson's research has resulted in news articles in papers, magazines and journals, podcasts, and television. Currently there is a documentary being made on him the theory and the making of the book.
