Martha Tabram, originally Martha White is stabbed to death by unidentified serial killer Jack the Ripper at the age of 39 in George Yard Buildings, Whitechapel, London, Greater London, United Kingdom.

Tabram was stabbed 39 times in the body and neck including nine times in the throat, five in the left lung, two in the right lung, one in the heart, five in the liver, two in the spleen, and six in the stomach, also wounding her lower abdomen and genitals. Tabram's murder differs from the canonical five Jack the Ripper murders in that she was stabbed rather than slashed at the throat and abdomen, and many experts today do not connect it with the later murders because of the difference in the wound pattern.
