Mitre Square is now surrounded on three sides by modern office blocks and bordered on its south side by the Sir John Cass foundation school. Nothing remains1 of the victorian square, except a few cobblestones across which people hurry on their way to and from work, not giving a thought that they are walking over the spot where one of london's most infamous2 crimes occurred.
 
Catherine Eddowes was the second victim of the night of Sunday 30 September 1888, a night which already had seen the killing3 of Elizabeth Stride less than an hour earlier. These two murders are commonly referred to as the "double event" and have been attributed to the serial4 Killer5 Jack6 the ripper.
 
It was in the south-west corner of mitre square that the horribly mutilated body of Catherine Eddowes was found, the fourth victim of "jack the ripper". The body was discovered at 1.45am on the 30th september 1888.local tradition maintains that on the anniversary of the killing, people have occasionally glimpsed catherine's ghostly figure lying upon the spot where her life came to such a tragic7 and gruesome end. The photograph of mitre square to the right was taken last year during a jack the ripper ghost walk it shows a ghostly white mist.
 
In the days of the brewery8 it was often noticed that a strange chill drifted through the boardroom at 6am on the anniversary of the murder and it was also reported that annie chapman's headless ghost was sometimes seen standing9 by the wall of the storeroom that occupied the spot where she died.
