From 1961 to 1966, a total of fourteen of bodies were found in Nottinghamshire, each with blunt force trauma to the head and scuffs on their body.
Police didn’t treat the deaths as suspicious initially, as they believed that the victims just tripped and fell in unfortunate places. - However, when the 7th body with the same cause of death was found within 3 years of the first, police teams across the county finally became suspicious.
News began to spread about a potential serial killer, now dubbed “Jack the Tripper”, and the public became panicked.
The police investigated for years, but were not able to find the murderer.
