    Atlanta's Jack the Ripper

    On July 1, 1911, a 20-year-old woman named Emma Lou Sharpe sat in her house on Hanover Street in Atlanta and waited for her mother to come home. It was a Saturday evening, and Emma Lou was worried. Her mother had left an hour before to fetch some groceries and still had not returned.

    Usually, this wouldn't be a cause for concern, but these were unusual times. Just two weeks before, a neighbor of the Sharpes named Addie Watts was hit on the head with a brick. Then, as the local papers described in a mysterious understatement, "a coupling pin was brought into play." Watts' attacker then dragged her into a clump of bushes and slit her throat.

    oh Cindy, that is creepy, reminds me of the Servant Girl Annihilator, where an axe murderer would target young girls, who were servants, I think this happened in 1884-1885

    We had another ripper right after the Atlanta Missing and Murdered case. But I can't find it anywhere.
