For the first time in over a century the actual police file for London's notorious "Jack the Ripper" case will go on public display, the Guardian reports. The cache even contains a note that may have been written by Jack himself: It warns detectives that he will soon "set to work again and I think that my next job will be to polish you off."
The documents "are absolutely amazing," said the curator of the upcoming exhibit at London's Museum in Docklands. "As a step-by-step account you get a real sense of what happened. The documents bring home the fact that these are real people and real events. They are very moving." Some 170 names have been floated as the Ripper, who killed and carved up 5 prostitutes in 1888.
