3.) Atlanta Ripper
The Atlanta Ripper terrorized the city from 1911-1915 and although the killer was never identified, the Ripper was blamed for the murders and mutilations of more than 20 people. At some murder scenes, police found notes signed "Jack the Ripper" with various threats. Victims were young black or mixed race women, so the first seven murders got scant attention from the news media. It was never proved that the same person was behind the murders. No one was ever convicted in the slayings.
