It managed to find Joan vigor-Mungavin, researcher of the life of the elephant Man. It should be noted that this finding is related to another well-known figure of Victorian London: Jack the Ripper. The researcher said that many victims were killed by a serial killer in Whitechapel in 1888. In the same area of London after only two years died and Joseph Merrick. Such a coincidence allowed us to understand where they were buried two victims of Jack the Ripper. There was seen a grave that could belong to the Merrick: burial was dated 24 April 1890, Joseph died April 11. In addition, it was stated that the deceased was a patient of the Royal London hospital and died at the age of 28 years. Vigor-Mungavin said that the actual age of Merrick at the time of death is 27 years, but often wrote it wrong. “It all fits, it can’t be just a coincidence,” says vigor-Mungavin.

Recall that Joseph Merrick was born in Leicester in 1862. In early childhood he showed an unknown disease – on the whole body, especially on his right arm and his head began to develop strange tumors. In 17 years, Merrick took to the circus, where he performed for several years. At the end of life the elephant Man came to the London hospital, where he was trying to study doctors. April 11, 1890, a strange patient died from choking in his sleep.

Scientists still don’t know what disease tortured Merrick. Also recall that the archaeologists found in Iraq lost city of the Akkadian Empire.
