Was Frederick Deeming, Jack the Ripper or was he just Australia's first serial killer? Was he Mad Fred or Bad Fred - you decide.

Join Twisted History for a walking tour around Melbourne CBD, as you explore the evidence followed by the Victorian police to catch one of the most wanted man in the world.

In 1892, the body of Emily Mather was found buried under the floor in a house in Windsor, sparking an international search for her killer. Hear the antics of the flamboyant Frederick Deeming and his adventures from Whitechapel in London to Melbourne and his victims that were left behind.
