American Ripper

HISTORY | 10:03 pm

Herman Mudgett, aka H.H. Holmes, is widely considered America’s first serial killer, and even constructed a 19th century hotel in Chicago designed expressly to lure and dispatch his victims. In this new unscripted series, Jeff Mudgett, his descendant, seeks to prove that his ancestor and England’s Jack the Ripper actually were the same man. He partners with ex-CIA analyst Amaryllis Fox to launch an investigation, using modern science and methodologies.
