Harold Jones

"I know it looks black against me"

In the cold winter month of February 1921, the brutal murder of a young girl shocked the residents of the quiet Welsh colliery town of Abertillery. When the suspect of this foul crime was revealed, the community was in further shock, because at fifteen-years-old, young Harold Jones was still just a child himself. On the wealth of evidence pointing to his guilt, he was placed on trial for murder, and although most believed him innocent, to the surprise of some he was acquitted. But as he walked free, few realized that Jones was harboring a malevolent secret.

Just over two weeks after his acquittal, another young girl disappeared and her body was later found in the Jones family home. This time justice caught up with Jones, and he found was found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment. After serving twenty years, Jones was free, but little is known of his time spent in London. In recent years it has been proposed that Jones was responsible for the series of murders known as the Hammersmith Nudes Murders that occurred in London during the 1960’s, which were committed by a killer the press dubbed Jack the Stripper.
