OMG, a skull believed to be that of Ned Kelly may really be….wait for it…the skull of Jack the Ripper. Yes, that’s right folks, Jack the friggin Ripper. For many years it was believed the wife and child killing British bigamist conman Frederick Bailey Deeming was in fact the infamous Whitechapel murderer. He was hanged in the Melbourne jail in 1892 but before his execution he boasted to fellow prisoners he was the notorious Jack the Ripper.Witnesses say they saw a man fitting Deeming’s description in London’s East End in 1888 buying knives. Anywho, at some stage a skull believed to be that of Ned Kelly was stolen from a glass display cabinet in the prison . A West Australian farmer Tom Baxter handed it in last year and since then experts have been trying to verify who the hell the skull belongs to, Kelly or Deeming? They are currently asking any female relis of the hanged English killer to come forward to give DNA. It is believed that his brothers and sisters were so horrified by his crimes they changed their names to Bailey.
