Join us this Thursday at 6:30 pm PST / 9:30 pm EST LIVE as your host Norene Balovich sits down with Jeff Mudgett to get the real story behind the worlds most honorific, scary, disturbing serial killers, Jack the Ripper and HH Holmes.

Searching for the truth after inheriting the personal diaries belonging to his great-great-grandfather, Herman Mudgett, AKA: H.H. HOLMES and discovering he was America's first and most notorious serial killer who struck terror into the nation by being the proprietor of the infamous Murder Castle and stalking the streets of Chicago during the 1893 World's Fair.

While awaiting execution, Holmes admitted killing 27 innocent victims, but the evidence the author locates indicates hundreds more likely. Jeff Mudgett, the direct descendant, learns that H. H. Holmes' reign of terror was worldwide and not limited to Chicago as has been so widely believed. Based upon never before revealed historical facts, Jeff pieces together a dynamic and extraordinary puzzle, including the strong possibility that Herman Mudgett was also Jack the Ripper.

"Jack the Ripper" is the best-known name given to an unidentified serial killer who was active in the largely impoverished areas in and around the Whitechapel district of London in 1888. The name originated in a letter, written by someone claiming to be the murderer, that was disseminated in the media. The letter is widely believed to have been a hoax, and may have been written by a journalist in a deliberate attempt to heighten interest in the story. Other nicknames used for the killer at the time were "The Whitechapel Murderer" and "Leather Apron".

Herman Webster Mudgett (May 16, 1861 -- May 8, 1896), better known under the alias of Dr. Henry Howard Holmes, was one of the first documented American serial killers in the modern sense of the term. In Chicago at the time of the 1893 World's Fair, Holmes opened a hotel which he had designed and built for himself specifically with murder in mind, and which was the location of many of his murders. While he confessed to 27 murders, of which four were confirmed, his actual body count could be as high as 200. He took an unknown number of his victims from the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, which was less than two miles away, to his "World's Fair" hotel
