Catherine Eddowes, murdered on 30th September 1888, was the fourth victim of Jack the Ripper.
Her murder is of interest for several reasons, not least of which is the fact that she was murdered in the City of London, meaning that a second police force, The City of London Police, became actively and officially involved in the hunt for the Whitechapel Murderer.
For this, the latest in our series of quizzes on the crimes, we have devised a series of 10 questions related to people and locations connected to her murder..
As with all the quizzes, you have 10 questions to answer, some of them are multiple choice whilst others simply require you to decide whether a statement made in the question is true or false. The question is, how many of them will you answer correctly?
If you’ve done our quizzes before, then you might prefer to bypass this preamble and, instead, head down to the foot of the page and get stuck in to the quiz as quickly as possible.
