Jack the Ripper killed his victims by slashing their throats, proceeding to eviscerate them when they were dead. Because bruises older than the cuts were found on the necks of many of the canonical victims, it has been suspected that the Ripper strangled his victims into submission with his bare hands before slashing them. He would often take an organ or two as a trophy and once sent a kidney to George Lusk, head of the Whitechapel Vigilance Committee, as proof of his identity. It is reported that the body of Mary Jane Kelly was so grotesquely slaughtered that she was unrecognizable (as you can see in the second picture). Her body was also posed with the legs parted, as was another victim.
