"In the year 1888, citizens of London, England, particularly those of
the poor district of Whitechapel, were terrorized by a villain whose
ghastly deeds have notched his bloody name forever - Jack the Ripper.
The Whitechapel community was reeling from severe economic recession.
The stark reality of starvation forced women into the streets as
prostitutes. Here they became vulnerable prey. As each victim fell
beneath the Ripper's bloodied knife, the hideous mutilations of the
bodies horrified the most seasoned investigators. When the British
tabloids printed the gruesome photos, shock and fear turned to anger.
Vigilante mobs roamed the streets while Scotland Yard desperately
scoured for a man who disappeared into the shadows of the night.
As suddenly as the murders began, they ended - but the identity of Jack
the Ripper has remained one of the greatest mysteries of the nineteenth
For a century later, these mysteries have given rise
to unending speculation. Stewart Evans, a police officer with the
Suffolk Constabulary and Paul Gainey, a press officer for the Suffolk
Police, believe they now have the answer. Their investigation began
with the recent discovery of a letter typed by a former inspector of
Scotland Yard naming one Dr. Francis J. Tumblety as the prime suspect
of the Ripper slayings. The police, unable to hold him on suspicion of
the Whitechapel crimes, succeeded in getting him held for trial under a
special law. The elusive Tumblety quickly raised bail, slipped through
the tight police surveillance and escaped to France. He travelled to
New York, followed closely by a team of detectives from Scotland Yard.
In The Lodger: The Arrest & Escape of Jack The Ripper Evans and
Gainey, present a well-argued case of how Tumblety fits the place, time
and circumstances surrounding the slayings. Drawing from contemporary
American newspapers, probate and judicial records, Evans and Gainey
have reconstructed the life and times of the doctor in North America
previous to and following his daring escape from England. Among the
highlights of his fascinating career was Tumblety's arrest as a
conspirator in the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. As well,
he was once ousted from a hotel in New York City. There were two
persons evicted from the hotel that day, the other being Charles J.
Guiteau, who three months later assassinated President James Garfield.
For a New Brunswick audience, the most astonishing aspect of Tumblety's
career is that he lived in Saint John and may have claimed his first
