Was Jack the Ripper caught at Southern Cross, Western Australia? Chapter Two

Recently I began revising an article Norma King had written about the first piano of Southern Cross and then of Coolgardie. In it, she stated that the notorious murderer, Frederick Deeming, who had many aliases, used to play it. She claimed in this article that his reputation as a good pianist helped detectives unravel his alias, which led to his arrest in Southern Cross. The article then went on to tell of how the piano also played a role in saving another man's life.

I was interested in learning more about this notorious murderer, so I began searching for articles written about Deeming at the time and it turns out he is one of the suspects for being Jack the Ripper. This podcast looks into the life of the murderous Deeming.
