Locations of Incident Murders

Researchers: Operative █████, D-112, and rogue agent Bijhan

Date of Filing: 2 October ████

Incident Report:

This is a retroactive report. It has been filed more than one hundred years after the incident took place. This is because new evidence has appeared within that timespan that has only now implicated the involvement of an SCP artifact.

The SCP artifact in question is ███-███, formerly SCP-215.

On 15 January 1885 a mummified corpse was discovered in Persepolis, Iran. At the time it was believed to belong to one of Alexander the Great's lieutenants who had ruled that portion of Iran. Noted scholars, however, cited the extremely primitive manner of the mummification process in their conclusion that the mummy was much older than the time of Alexander.

On 22 February 1886 the corpse was officially made a member of the London Museum of History gallery, and put on display. It garnered little media attention due to its lack of preservation and its lack of accompanying artifacts. By 3 June 1888 it was placed in permanent storage.

According to the museum's records, the mummy is still in storage. However, Foundation Operatives have been unable to confirm its existence in their missions to the museum. External involvement in an active cover-up is suspected, but the perpetrators are unknown.

On 31 August 1888 Mary Ann Nichols was murdered in the Whitechapel district of London. This was the beginning of a string of murders attributed to "Jack the Ripper". Attached is an illustration of the geography of the murder sites.

The list of victims and dates are public knowledge, as is much of the research and information on this rash of to-date unsolved murders. Many of the details are irrelevant to this report.

What is relevant is that eyewitness accounts place the "Oriental Mummy" (as the remains came to be called) in storage between 3PM and 5PM GMT on 30 August 1888. The murder of Mary Ann Nichols took place at 3:40AM 31 August 1888. From 7PM 30 August 1888 up to the present day the mummy's presence has not been visually confirmed in the London Museum of History's storage facility.

The museum exists on Exhibition Row in Kensington. The murder took place in the district of Whitechapel. The two districts of London are adjacent. In an automobile it would take roughly 25 minutes to traverse the distance between the museum and the murder site.

According to agents of both this organization and others, a mummified corpse identical to the one described by the London Museum of History's manifest has been sighted at numerous paranormal incidents, especially combat areas, and has acted to enable carnage and the loss of lives.

Another identical mummy has been observed in illustrations and reports of a Staten Island Museum Egyptology display between 1 April 1891 and 3 June 1891. The museum contains no logs of a mummy fitting the description in spite of evidence to the contrary. It is also worth noting that Carrie Brown, a Manhattan prostitute, was murdered on 24 April 1891. Contemporary pundits and some historians have credited the killing, based on the modus operandi and timing, to "Jack the Ripper" in a trans-Atlantic movement.

It is the conclusion of this commission of researchers that the murders credited to "Jack the Ripper" by the Metropolitan Police of London and the murder of Carrie Brown in Manhattan are the actions of a single artifact in the form of a mummified corpse from Persepolis, Iran. This artifact was present at the London Museum of History, then at the Staten Island Museum, and has, since 3 June 1891 been missing.

It is also the conclusion of this commission of researchers that this artifact is also the "Oriental Mummy" detailed by other reports.

Note from General Bowe:
In the interest of international security, this report has been given to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard. In spite of ongoing hostilities between the Foundation and the IRG, it is important to note that we two may one day need to join forces to defeat this "Oriental Mummy".
