Possible victim of Jack the Ripper Emma Elizabeth Smith is possibly attacked by unidentified serial killer Jack the Ripper at the age of 45 in The London Hospital, Whitechapel Road, Whitechapel, London, Greater London, United Kingdom.

Smith was assaulted at the junction of Osborn Street and Brick Lane the night before. She was taken to the hospital, fell into a coma and died. Medical investigation by duty surgeon Dr G. H. Hillier revealed that a blunt object had been inserted into her vagina rupturing her peritoneum. The case was listed as the first of eleven Whitechapel murders in Metropolitan Police files.
