During the Terror caused by Jack the Ripper's Whitechapel murders, Stephenson wrote a strange newspaper article, in which he claimed that black magic had been the motive for the murders. Shortly after the article was published, Stephenson disappeared.
Having signed himself into a hospital shortly before the murders started, the Metropolitan Police Service considered Stephenson a viable suspect, seeing as he had been able to freely leave the hospital whenever he wanted.
