Sue Smith's heart skipped a beat.
She had just discovered that Jack the Ripper may have lived in Rockhampton, and if he did, most likely in a house in East Street – what's now Peter Busby's home.
Frederick Bailey Deeming, an Australian serial killer, had lived in Rockhampton and was thought by a prominent forensic researcher to possibly have been Jack the Ripper.
Jack the Ripper was an unidentified serial killer who terrorised those in and around the Whitechapel district of London in 1888.
“Jack the Ripper is one of the great mysteries, so many books have been written about him ... as a journalist, it was a very exciting story,” Sue said.
