SUBJECT: Jack the Ripper (From the FBI Files)
In 1988, Cosgrove-Meurer Productions were working on a special episode of Unsolved Mysteries dedicated entirely to the Jack The Ripper murders from a hundred years prior. Ostensibly to gather new evidence and establish credibility--but more likely to be used as a marketing gimmick--they contracted the FBI to analyze the case.
It's not terribly fascinating, nor does it offer much of anything new to anybody who has read any books or seen any films about the Ripper, but it is a curious historical document which is now available to the public (along with a host of other interesting files) thanks to the Freedom of Information Act.
