Default Pacific Standard-The Science of Society

Probably not a Ripperologist, but here is a quote from the below article

I solicited the opinion of Ruth Richardson, a scholar of 19th-century social history and certain of its more gruesome aspects. Over email, Richardson writes:

Although there might well be DNA on the clothing, there was absolutely no notion of forensic cleanliness at the time. I would want far more proof than that; it would have to be on the clothes of more than one of the victims at the very least. But if this man’s DNA really was found on the shawl, and the shawl really was the victim’s, then the story might be real news. I think the jury will be out until more data is on the table.


Of course, no clothing (except Ta-Da! this shawl) exists.
