TEDx Vancouver Features Jeff Mudgett for “TILT”

    On Saturday, October 18, 2014 Jeff Mudgett will step into the spotlight of the TEDx Vancouver live event being held at the Queen Elizabeth Theater in Vancouver, BC. Mudgett has created something a little “tilted” to comply with the theme of the TEDx Vancouver conference, TILT. His presentation will swear in the audience as a “Grand Jury” to interactively conclude a legal decision: if evidence he produces is enough to show probable cause and take his case to trial, something never done at TEDx. What case? The possibility of the true identity of Jack the Ripper, none other than Mudgett’s great-great-grandfather, Herman Webster Mudgett, known in American criminal history as H. H.

Jeff Mudgett Talks About Jack the Ripper Grand Jury on The Roth Show

The back story of Jeff Mudgett’s BLOODSTAINS has been told many times over the last two years since its publication, but the recent news of DNA proof of the identity of Jack the Ripper has “Ripperologists” all abuzz about its veracity. Could bloodstains on an alleged victim’s shawl contain DNA evidence of the Ripper? The controversy continues to be debated. (Check out the Twitter hashtag #JackTheRipper for all kinds of opinions!) During presentations in Philadelphia September 26, Mudgett will use the audience as a “grand jury.” He will present the evidence collected through his research since writing BLOODSTAINS that the true identity of the Ripper may be his great-great-grandfather, America’s first serial killer, H. H. Holmes (Herman Webster Mudgett). Dr. Laurie Roth has welcomed Jeff Mudgett as a guest on her nationally syndicated The Roth Show several times. He has talked about his nefarious ancestor and the heinous crimes he committed in Chicago’s infamous “Murder Castle.” He’s related to listeners his personal encounter with the ghosts that haunt him in the form of remembering victims, …
