Author Claims Jack the Ripper Was Actually Aaron the Ripper

The true identity of the infamous serial killer known as Jack the Ripper has eluded investigators for over a century, but in his new book, Naming Jack the Ripper, author Russell Edwards claims to have solved the mystery at last. He points the finger at 23-year-old Polish immigrant and hairdresser Aaron Kosminski, long considered one of the key suspects in the so-called Whitechapel murders. Edwards arrived at this conclusion after linking DNA left on a shawl at one of the Ripper's murder scenes to the descendants of Kosminski. More...

"Aaron the Ripper" just doesn't have a good ring to it.

I think, It would be difficult to convict Mr. Kosminski based on this piece of evidence.

Too much obsession over a killer so far into the past.

Perhaps, these cases attract attention, because they were first in their kind. Besides, the way the victims were mutilated was especially gruesome.

An Australian retired policeman wrote a book and put forward a very plausible theory that Jack was a sailor, his times back in England coinsided with each of the murders.

When he went home (don't remember which European country) there were similar murders in his own country, creepy.

The least believable book has been Patricia Caldwell's, this is my opinion only.

We were obsessed with Jack the Ripper in primary school. Mind you, we were also obsessed with the Bermuda Triangle, alien abduction & the Loch Ness Monster.
Ah the enquiring young minds we had. I also remember hearing a rumour that they'd removed the word 'gullible' from the dictionary.

I once lived a couple of doors away from the former abode of one of the unlikely suspects (Walter Sickert). I like Tov's retired policeman's theory. I wonder how many other such serial killings have been solved 'by default'

I think it is a 'Who Dunnit' that has never been solved, and there is no final page, each book continues our fascination,

mix in a little Royal cover-up and its a classic.

That is interesting Pedro, there must have been rumors galore.
