Has Jack The Ripper’s identity finally been determined?
by Torkel Ødegård • September 7, 2014 • 23 Comments

Another claim to have “definitively” solved one of the world’s most enduring mysteries. This time using modern technology.
‘Jack the Ripper was Polish barber called Aaron Kosminski’, new book claims.
Jack the Ripper was a 23-year-old Polish immigrant called Aaron Kosminski, according to an author claiming to have exposed the serial killer’s true identity using DNA evidence.
Russell Edwards, who describes himself as an “armchair detective”, believes he has identified the Victorian murderer for the first time after more than 120 years of mystery.
Police had identified Kosminski as a suspect, Mr Edwards said, but never had enough evidence to bring him to trial.
A blood-stained shawl belonging to one of the Ripper’s victims bought at an auction in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, in 2007 was used as the basis for the research.
As well as being soaked in her blood, it was found to have traces of semen thought to belong to the killer.
Mr Edwards said: “I’ve got the only piece of forensic evidence in the whole history of the case.
“I’ve spent 14 years working on it, and we have definitively solved the mystery of who Jack the Ripper was.
“Only non-believers that want to perpetuate the myth will doubt. This is it now – we have unmasked him.”
Aaron Kosminski was one of the top suspects in the Jack The Ripper case back in the 1880s. But as we all know, no one was ever convicted for the Whitechapel murders, as there was never any conclusive evidence back then to make a conviction.
The shawl that Russell Edwards is now in possession of is that of Catherine Eddowes one of the five canonical victims of Jack the Ripper. Sergeant Amos Simpson, a police officer on duty the night Eddowes was murdered, took the shawl from the crime scene and was planning on giving it to his wife as a gift. His wife was however allegedly appalled by the notion and supposedly never wore it. Yet the shawl remained in the family for generations until it was sold at the auction where Edwards bought it.
Edwards enlisted the help of Jari Louhelainen, an expert in analyzing DNA from old collectibles. Louhelainen has been analyzing the shawl since 2011 and have been comparing the DNA with Eddowes’ descendants and Kosminski.
However there are circumstances that might put a damper on this sensational claim that Jack The Ripper’s identity has been determined. Susanne Bodman at Oregon Live is one who’s rather skeptical of this claim. She says there is no mention of any of this going to be published in any peer-reviewed journals. Edwards is releasing a book on about it, but that’s not the same.
Another point she makes is that while the shawl is claimed to have been found next to Eddowes’ body, there’s no provenance for it and the only thing we have to go on is a letter from the previous owner that one of their ancestor was a police officer in London at the time of the Jack The Ripper murders. Not exactly iron clad evidence.
However, if this new DNA evidence is correct, it will hopefully put a stop to the outlandish theories like the one that Jack The Ripper was a woman, that it was Walter Sickert (a theory not taken seriously by most) or the one about how the Jack The Ripper was just a hoax.
