Was Frederick Deeming Jack the Ripper? Or was he just Australia’s first serial killer?
Join us during Law Week for a walking tour around Melbourne CBD as we explore the evidence found by the Victorian police to catch one of the most wanted men in the world.
In 1892 the body of Emily Mather was found buried under the floor of a house in Windsor, sparking an international search for her killer. Hear the antics of the flamboyant Frederick Deeming and his adventures from Whitechapel in London to Melbourne, and his victims that were left behind.
