OK, Maybe It's 118 Years Too Late, But Here's Jack The Ripper

Or rather, scientists best reconstruction of what "Jack" looked like based on supposed eyewitness accounts.

Interestingly, the widow of one of the major suspects in the London-based killing of prostitutes happened to move to my home town long before I was born. My grandmother knew her but she was something of a local celebrity (not related to the murders).

Only much later did I realize the woman I'd heard about in old stories was the same woman discussed in an (I believe) ABC profile of the case.
