A book has claimed Britain's notorious 'Jack The Ripper' was a woman, and was active in London. "Jack The Ripper: The Hand Of A Woman" has been authored by John Morris. The book was written along with his late father Byron Morris, the Daily Mail reports.

Morris, 62, has named Welsh-born Lizzie Williams as the Whitechapel monster - and claims she killed her victims because she could not have children, ripping out the wombs of three in an 'unhinged state'.

Lizzie was the wife of royal physician Sir John Williams, a prime suspect. Both the men went through many medical and legal documents to draw up a compelling case for branding Lizzie the killer.
