This morning, I read an article in the newspaper about the British serial killer Jack The Ripper. Apparently, now his identity has been unmasked and one of the biggest mysteries in British history is finally brought to an end.
According to the article, a businessman named Russell Edwards (48) bought a shawl at an auction. This shawl was found near the body of Catherine Eddowes, one of the Ripper's victims. It was covered in blood and semen.
Edwards brought the shawl to Dr. Jari Louhelainen - a world renowed expert in using genetic evidence in tracing back killers - who used cutting-edge techniques to trace DNA found on the material.
Apparently, there is no doubt who the killer really was. He was a Polish-born hairdresser, named Aaron Kosminski. He used to be considered a suspect at the time of the killings, but no evidence was foudn of his guilt.
Well, I don't know whether this is true or not. After all, the story was brought to the The Mail on Sunday by Russell Edwards himself... who is without doubt obsessed by the Ripper killings.
