Frederick George Abberline
Birth: Jan. 7, 1843
Death: Dec. 10, 1929

Law Official. He was the Scotland Yard Inspector in charge of the investigation into the 1888 "Jack the Ripper" murders. He joined the London Metropolitan Police in 1863 and in 1887 moved to Scotland Yard, where he was promoted to First Class Inspector. After the brutal murder of prostitute Mary Ann Nichols in 1888, and because of his familiarity with Whitechapel, Abberline was selected to lead the investigation. Four similar killings occurred in the area through 1889 but the case was never solved. In 1892, and after 29 years of service, Abberline resigned at the rank of Chief Inspector. The rest of his career was spent in the field of private investigation. He died at the age of 86 and was originally buried in an unmarked grave next to his wife. Almost eighty years after his death a memorial stone was erected at the gravesite. In films of the "Jack the Ripper" story, fictionalized versions of Abberline have been played by actors Michael Caine and Johnny Depp. (bio by: ahley)
