2015 EDU: WRITE: A dark place of dark deeds. Whitechapel, 1888.

A dark place of dark deeds.  
Whitechapel, 1888
A story from history.  With no ending from history.  Some of the scene rendered here. More to show.  But it will take guts to show it.  Of interest to writers, historians, journalism teachers, and mystery fans.
