Schizoid murderers and handwriting analysis:
Out of tens of handwritings of murderers which I have examined so far, more than 80% were schizoids at the highest level. It is important to state that I only related to murderers who murdered in cold blood and who planned their action in advance and not to those who murdered passionately due to either a love affair gone sour, a sudden fit of rage or an unbearable insult. I had mainly examined assassination style serial murderers.
Unfortunately, or perhaps I should say fortunately, I had never met a murderer, certainly not a serial murderer. I truly regret having seen only a few original handwritings belonging to murderers, as well as not having the chance to see the original handwriting of a serial murderer and therefore will not be able to relate to this type thoroughly.
The obvious element would be the total separatation between intellect and emotion and between “ego” and super-“ego”, otherwise they would not have been capable of commiting such crimes. Most of them show lack of judgement and yet possess well developed planning skills and good self-control.
All the schizoid murderers share something in common with the rest of the schizoid types.
- The charming type - they usually have personal charm through which they manage to contact their victims and gain trust.
- The ambitious type - They have strong ambitions otherwise they would not risk their lives and freedom.
- The security man - They have the ability to keep their secret to themselves, often they follow their victim, plan the murder or the assault almost always on their own without sharing it with others.
- The obsessive - All the serial murderers obsessively repeat their horrible crimes.
- The criminal - They have a captivating charm and an ability to pretend and conceal their true intentions. They can lie without even a blink and completely lack conscience.
- The destructive type - Their destructive instinct causes them to murder and by killing they destroy their victims and in most cases themselves as well.
- We can conclude that the murderer share characteristics with all the types. Their characteristics are at a high leveled and extremely twisted.

Between 3 April 1988 and 13 February 1891, the East End of London became the staging place for a series of sickening murders that caused outrage through the entire nation. Although the killer’s identity has been wildly speculated upon, to this day the murderer is known only as Jack the Ripper
Jack the Ripper was not the first serial killer, and more than likely not the one that killed the most. He was, however, the first to probably commit his crimes in a large city and receive the largest press cover.
The name “Jack the Ripper” appeared on many letters which were mailed to the police and to newspapaers.
Some of these letters where printed in the newspapers, with the hope of someone recognizing the handwriting, and at the same time vastly increasing the Ripper’s fame.
The press was indeed partly responsible for creating many myths surrounding the Ripper. Millions of Dollars are still being spent in order to solve this mystery. The Ripper was never caught and it is the mysterious effect surrounding this killer that both adds to the romance of the story as well as creating an intellectual challege for many people who are investigating the case to this date.
Much of the evidence was lost over the years, but the letters were kept safely at the Public record house in Que, where I had seen them
During the Autumn of Terror around 400 letters were sent to the police and local press purporting to be written by the Ripper. Many Ripperologists believe them all to be hoaxes. Other experts believe some of them, especifically the Dear Boss letter, Saucy Jacky postcard, and From Hell letter are genuine. The problem is that they do not seem to be written by the same writer, therefor, there are 3 options:
- They ware not written by the same person.
- The person how wrote it suffered form multiple personality.
- There was more than 1 Ripper, ( the chances of that are slim to none).
