Mary Jane Kelly (c. 1863 - 9 November 1888) was the fifth and final "canonical" victim of the notorious unidentified serial killer Jack the Ripper, who killed and mutilated prostitutes in the Whitechapel area of London during the late summer and autumn of 1888. There is some dispute about her true origins, and whether the dead woman was actually the person named in the report.

It was at Mary Kelly's dwelling that the Sanguine Club finally caught Jack, who was gloating over her corpse.
