Was Jack the Ripper hanged in Dundee, Scotland in 1889?

William Henry Bury - Jack the Ripper suspectDundee is one of the four major cities of Scotland. Dundee is known as 'The City of Discovery' taking that name from Scott of the Antartic's ship "Discovery" which was built in Dundee and returned here a few years ago.

Author Euan MacPherson of Dundee claims that after fifteen years of research he is convinced that William Henry Bury, a disturbed man who arrived in Dundee from London by steamer in January 1889 is Jack the Ripper.

Bury murdered his wife in Dundee by strangling her and plunging a knife into her abdomen. MacPherson also claims the following:

The hangman who executed Bury in April 1889 later told a journalist that he was known to have been Jack the Ripper.

When Bury was arrested two messages in chalk were found at his lodging - one reading "Jack Ripper is at the back of this door".
Currently William Henry Bury, or W.H. Bury, is considered the 10th most likely Jack the Ripper suspect at a popular Ripper website.
