The suspects have included everyone from Queen Victorias grandson the Duke of Clarence to Alice in Wonderland author Lewis Carroll.

Some even said a Sioux Indian warrior called Black Elk, who toured Britain with Buffalo Bills Wild West Show in the 1880s, was the guilty man. Others believed child charity campaigner Dr Barnardo was Jack.
