Jose Rizal is Jack The Ripper


"Jack the Ripper" is the best-known name given to an unidentified serial killer who was active in the largely impoverished areas in and around the Whitechapel district of London in 1888. He was so called because of a letter who was written by someone who claims he was the killer, however the letter was considered as a hoax. Another names to him are "The Whitechapel Murderer" and "Leather Apron".

While Jose Rizal was in London, Jack The Ripper was present and when he went back to the Philippines, the killings had stopped. It was very mysterious! Could it be just a coincidence? Or not?

By the way, Jack The Ripper likes girls, while Jose Rizal was quite similar to him. They both have the same initials too, J.R.

For those who don't know Jose Rizal, he is the national hero of the Philippines though not legally official.

José Protacio Rizal Mercado y Alonzo Realonda (Jose Rizal) was a Filipino polymath, patriot and the most prominent advocate for reform in the Philippines during the Spanish colonial era. He is regarded as the foremost Filipino patriot.[Click Here]

Let's find out...


While searching everything about Jose Rizal in the internet, I stumbled upon this summary of his life while living at London.
Rizal was in London from May 1888 to January 1889, in the British Library copying "Sucesos de las islas Filipinas" by hand because there were no photocopying machines at the time. Jack the Ripper was active around this time, and since we do not know what Rizal did at night or on the days he was not in the library, some people would like to believe Rizal is suspect. They argue that when Rizal left London, the Ripper murders stopped. They say that Jack the Ripper must have had some medical training, based on the way his victims were mutilated. Rizal, of course, was a doctor. Jack the Ripper liked women, and so did our own Rizal. And -- this is so obvious that many overlooked it -- Jose Rizal's initials match those of Jack the Ripper!


Actually the case was still unsolved. Till now everything about it is a speculation. Here's a brief information about Rizal and the Ripper in London:

Jose Rizal
Jack the Ripper
He was a doctor. (An ophtalmologist particularly) He is suspected to be a doctors (the removal of the victims’ organs implied anatomical knowledge).
He is a multi-talented person, and could even speak English fluently. The Ripper is an Englishmen.
Rizal lived in Beckett family at Crescent, London. Ripper killed prostitutes in Whitechapel, London.
He is known for having many lovers. His victims are all women.
Rizal copied, by hand, the book Sucesos de las islas Filipinas at daylight. Ripper killed prostitutes always at night time in the East End.
Rizal is a Freemason. In the word 'Juwes', which might mean Freemason, makes him related somehow to it.
He leaved London on January, 1889. On July, 1889, another victim was believed to be killed by the Ripper.
Jose Rizal's initial is JR. Jack the Ripper's initial is also JR.

This is the events that happened in London at the time when Jose Rizal and Jack the Ripper was in the said city. (In chronological order.)

Jose Rizal
Jack the Ripper
February 3, 1888 As the controversy over his novel raged, Rizal got involved in the Kalamba tenant's fight to correct generations-old abuses commited against them. Thus, the security for the Rizal family became a problem. Then, they advised Jose Rizal to leave the Philippines. He departed secretly for Hong Kong, then to Japan, and to United States.
May 13 to 16, 1888 Dr. Jose P. Rizal stayed at the Fifth Avenue Hotel, New York City.
May 16, 1888 He gathered enough funds for a trip to London onboard the luxurious liner CITY OF ROME.
May 24, 1888 He arrived in Liverpool, then went on to London, where he eventually settled down at No. 37 Chalcot, Crescent (with the Beckett Family).
While in London, Dr. Rizal copied the book Sucesos de las islas Filipinas written by Antonio de Morga in the library of British Museum.[1]
June 13, 1888 He wrote a letter to his family informing them where he was that time.
August 31, 1888
Jack the Ripper started his killings. (First victim, Mary Ann "Polly" Nichols)
September 8, 1888
Jack the Ripper killed his second victim - Annie Chapman.
September 25, 1888
A post card was sent to 'Dear Boss', the head of the Central News Agency, signed 'Yours truly, Jack the Ripper.'
September 30, 1888
Jack the Ripper killed two women in the same day - Elizabeth Stride and Catharine Eddowes, found half-a-mile apart.
[The words 'The Juwes are the men that Will not be Blamed for nothing', were chalked, seemingly by Jack, on a doorway immediately above a portion of the bloodstained apron of victim Catharine Eddowes. The word 'Juwes' may mean a code-word for the Freemasons, or the Jews.]
November 9, 1888
Jack the Ripper killed his last victim, Mary Jane Kelly.
[Dr. Jose Rizal wrote letters to his friend Blumentritt from London, however there were no letters written to his family or friends from July, 1888 - November 14, 1888.] [Between August 31 to November 9, 1888, five prostitutes were killed in Whitechapel, always late at night.]
January, 1889 Dr. Jose P. Rizal left London.
July, 1889
After nine months from the last Ripper killing, Alice Mackenzie was murdered, and once claimed as a Ripper victim, although the police did not think so at the time.
There were fifteen leading candidates for the true identity of Jack the Ripper. Three of them were highly suspected, namely Montague Druitt; 'Kosminski’, a Polish Jew; and ‘Michael Ostrog, a Russian doctor.’ All were documented in MacNaghten Memorandum. But the more highly suspected and convincing of the three is Montague Druitt.[2][3]
[1]The book tells a fair presentation of a 16th century Philippine culture and civilization. (If you notice some defects in Filipino race, maybe you read the book yourself in order to make a better judgement of the present.)

[2]There appeared to be a good deal of evidence linking him with the Ripper. In 1913, Mac-Naghten told the Daily Mail that he had ‘a very clear idea’ who the Ripper was, but had ‘destroyed all the documents and there is now no record of the secret information which came into my possession at one time or another.’ A journalist with good police contacts, G.R. Sims, stated in 1903 that ‘the body of the man suspected by the chiefs of Scotland Yard, and by his own friends, who were in communication with the Yard, was found in the Thames.’ Druitt indeed committed suicide in the Thames around November 30th, 1888, shortly after being dismissed as a schoolteacher in Blackheath, and three weeks after the last Ripper murder. Druitt, who was also a barrister, had chambers at King’s Bench Walk, within walking distance of the East End, and apparently had a cousin who was a doctor with offices in the Minories, on the border of the East End.

[3]In some sources, the evidences pointed James Maybrick to be Jack the Ripper. Well, all or almost all of the evidence pointing him are highly convincing making him the killer.

Other things about Jose Rizal:
  • He was a Malay.

  • He would have been 27 years old at the time of the Ripper killings.

  • He was short, had dark skin, dark hair, and dark eyes.

  • He came from a well to do family, was well dressed and looked respectable.

  • He was executed in the Philippines on December 30, 1896 at the age of 35.

  • Had a romantic relationship with Gertrude Beckett - daughter of Charles Beckett.

  • After he died, his mother tried to procure his assets which consisted of some pretty nice jewelry including gold cuff links and other baubles of diamonds and amethysts (gold chain with a red stone seal?)

  • Conclusion:

    Well, as soon as Jack the Ripper is still unknown, no one can say that Jose Rizal isn't him. We, Filipinos see this intelligent little guy a hero, good, patriot, and brave man for writing Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo. Are we so sure that there is no bad side of him? If you notice, in El Fili, Simoun is brave, dark and vengeful who thinks of killing the influential people in Paulita and Juanito Pelaez's wedding day. I don't mean of anything. I just open some possibilities which make him suspect of being JACK THE RIPPER.

    However, if it is true that Alice Mackenzie was indeed one of Jack the Ripper's victims, then probably Jose Rizal was not him because at the time she was killed, Jose Rizal was not present anymore in London. Aside of that, there is no strong evidence to prove that he is the Ripper. They don't even have a connection with each other. I personally believe he is NOT.

    I asked my professor in 'The Life of Jose Rizal' once about this intriguing controversy. She didn't tell me exactly if she do believe that Dr. Jose Rizal is indeed Jack the Ripper. She told me that even the the most silent person in the world do have a secret, and Rizal might be one of them. She also told me that there are some proofs that point him to be the killer, but not too strong to hold the claim. I asked her what proofs, but she just became silent and closed the topic eventually. I don't know if she knew something. But one thing for sure, as long as Jack the Ripper is still not identified, claims of his identity will just rose from no where.

    I highly advise you to search for yourself information that disproves the legend, not to prove it. You know, its embarrassing if you believe he is. Jose Rizal is the perfect picture of a true Filipino, not only for being small but for being just HIM - patriot, talented, multi-lingual ... name it. Remember, Ninoy Aquino died the same reason why our national hero die for. I can't imagine if my favorite hero is a killer. I don't know if you feel the same way too.

    Book: The Hunt for Jack the Ripper by: William D. Rubinstein


    1. come on! this is just another urban legend!

    2. Based on profiling, the probability that Jose Rizal was indeed Jack the Ripper is over 90%.

    3. There may be a possibility but we are certainly not sure. we may conclude but our conclusions do not have valid evidence to prove that jose rizal is Jack the Ripper

    4. I love Rizal.. However I believe that everyone has a secret... Which infact, all the info doesn't have a valid evidence/proof. It's really intriguing...

    5. Jose Rizal ...Is Jack The Ripper.
      The evidence lies in an old vault that is being secretly held by The Jesuits of Manila.
      JRCF#344 (This code is the clincher.)

    6. it was Rizals pleasure to kill, may be..

    7. Jose Rizal and Jack the Ripper are not the same. Ripper hates girls uhmm.. because he's not capable in something in girls... His true name is Walter Sickert... So please respect Jose Rizal...

    8. Accdg to my Prof., Rizal was molested as a child. And that COULD BE a reason for those killings.

    9. You who believe in this theory has nothing but a brain as small as pea, they call it pea-brain and dick-head. To believe that a person like Rizal who would risk his life to protect the honor of a woman will be Jack the Ripper is downright outrageous and disrespect the National Hero of the Philippines. I doubt whether you are Filipino. You dont even know that the Official National Hero of the Philippines is Rizal. A man in the stature of Rizal who is a friend of many great men in those hard times, who cured people and help people in Dapitan, who was brave to defend his innocence against Spain, and who is a genius with prophetic mind can even do such evil deeds as you try to convince the readers of this blog. Rizal was of many talents he has no lost time and would spend writing not just letters but but many ideas. As written in his diary, he would write at night and when he is not writing he would do sculpture works while in London and socialize with new found friends. Jack the Ripper to escape detection after killing must be knowledgeable of London which is for a first timer like Rizal would be like a maze. One can get lost in London if you have not been there. So even that alone, its impossible for Rizal to be the Ripper such he was new and didn't know London. He could have easily been caught. Jack the Ripper is one who lived and died in London and certainly that's not Rizal idiot.

      1. you know i have a secret book of rizal it contents a magic words.. rizal used an oracion to escape his enemy many times...

      2. You who can't speak (write) English correctly is the idiot.

      3. I pity your ignorance. You claim like you are 100% sure, but your arguments are laughable.
        "One can get lost if you have not been there." <- So he is not Rizal?
        "He could have easily been caught." <- That does not prove anything.
        "A man in the stature of Rizal..." <- Fool. There are noble killers. That doesn't cross Rizal out.
        "Rizal was of many talents he has no lost time..." <- Being talented doesn't make you a suspect?
        "I doubt whether you are Filipino." <- Being not as ignorant as you and being open to possibility determines your nationality?

        By all means, you are an idiot. Speaking in English with a long paragraph or nonsense? Yeah. That proves a lot.

    11. To the blogger, You may research also if Rizal was the father of Adolf Hitler.....

    12. Rizal is Jack the Ripper. this is true.. that's the real reason why he was executed.. As per Dr. Rogie F. Uckmann and Atty. Cheskalyn A. Dickins

    13. the mystery of who really is Jack the Ripper can never be solved. not unless we have a time machine which can transport us back to that time period. Jose Rizal was a great man, he died for his beloved country the Philippines, that is a fact. suggesting that he is Jack the Ripper seems far fetched. but thinking logically, we can never really be sure, can we??? we weren't there when all this happened. also remember, every person has his/her own dark secrets, that includes Jose Rizal. so until a solid evidence comes up, the real identity of Jack the Ripper will never be known......

    16. Its could be a coincidence that when Jose Rizal was on London the killings have started and besides the place where the killings were made was on Whitechapel and based on my research Rizal didn't stayed there. But we still don't know the real identity of the notorious serial killer of all time, Jack the Ripper

    17. Please bear with me if this stuff that im about to mention are a little bit to far-fetch.
      Here's my little understanding (Personal Perception) about the peeps that happens to be very famous in our History:

      I don't know where to start.. well how about from this guy

      -Leonardo da vinci - a freemason

      This site is quite rare : Here is the main

      Here are the sub:

      Remark: Lots of site in google search engine provokes you to believe that Leonardi wasnt a Freemason.

      Our beloved All-star National B.S heroes according to our BS "Historian ignorant teachers" in class. -sigh. But we MUST not blame them for they were just also taught by their preceding lecturers and so on..

      The list:


      Do not look to shock if your Most Wanted National Hero is on the list.

      Bottomline: If you become a Freemason, 50 years from now the WORLD will remember you. All members ARE all ACTION STAR, ACE PLAYER, KEY PLAYERS, TOP BRASS, BIG WHEEL, TOP CAT, CAPTAIN, YOU NAME IT ALL. wanna know why? hmmmm.... its very.. very.. very.. very SIMPLE!

      1 John 2:15

      Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.…

      Jesus Christ owns the World, But Satan Dominates the world since from the beginning of time that eve disobey Jesus order.

      In heaven, there is already a rebellious act. Lucifer VS. The Holy Father, i think he's really jealous of The Father for we. humans, dont have a freakin clue. Envy much?? lol.

      The Holy Father created humans. Then Lucifer created science, sci-fi, Robots, Cartoons, Walt Disney, even adoption, Birth Control.

      Everything that the Lord hath created, the curse (satan) wants to compete and rebel. well, i think that's really his thing lol...

      Think all you wanted to think, we all are rationale being anyway but that's how i perceived the B.S of this world. plain and simple! :))

    18. Satanism is a vital philosophy which asks you to take your fate in your own hands--break the barriers that confine you--sweep aside all that is smothering you--realize your full innate power. The most important commandment of Satanism is: Satanism demands study - not worship.

      Satan does not need to receive worship to achieve his goals. All he has to do is to keep a man from following Jesus. Satan knows that anyone who does not follow in the teachings of Jesus does not have God. (2 John 9)

    19. The knowledge that Jesus offers is not the same as the 'knowledge' that the Illuminati offers. Christ tried to teach us the power of love, grace, forgiveness, and goodness, and He tried to teach us how to reconnect to God the Father. The knowledge of the Illuminati is the same old 'new age' crap that the serpent used to trick Eve in the garden of eden... the false believe that we can become as God. They view our God as only an advanced being and that with enough knowledge and development anybody can become like Him. That's worked out really well for Lucifer so far...

      The sight Jesus was referring to was an advanced understanding of the importance of love. Humans did not understand love during His last visit, they only understood obedience to rules and rituals. His message was a vision that most could not see and could not understand because they were blind to love.

      What value is there in worshiping yourself? Anything that is, came from the one Creator, and only the Creator deserves our worship.

    20. in your conclusion 2nd paragraph.
      maybe rizal contacted one person to kill alice so others will think that rizal is not Jack Ripper.

    21. Ewan ko at ewan natin sinong may pakana? At ngayon di pa rin alam kung bat tayo nandito.

    22. Ewan mo at ewan natin sinong may pakana? wahahahahaha.... how deep could the motors of your brain capable of deciphering a positive result? I mean, don't you have the capacity to dig up some relics from our "PAST" our human race? HISTORY!

      who doesn't love his history will experience the same BS all over again.. and we HUMANS, we love to complain.. WTF is wrong in our world?? wahahahahha.... seriously?? i mean, give yourself a favor my friend. dig a little bit, just a little bit you might figure out it's worth doing. :))

    23. and when you start digging bring Jesus the Christ with you.. soon in time you'll understand why you need him or MUST be with him. ^_^

      it is scary btw!
