"...it can be argued that it is hardly conclusive evidence that Kosminski was the Ripper (the DNA of a Whitechapel resident on the belongings of a known Whitechapel prostitute merely proves Kosminski met Eddowes at some point)..."
I guess that they won't get any closer than this unless there are more items from murder scenes with DNA on them. Still it is very compelling circumstantial evidence, especially the murders stopping when he went into the asylum. Fucking polish immigrants again.
Other than popularity, there's no point really in solving murders where the perpetrator undoubtedly died 100 years ago. But still fun to know.
every year they have a new suspect. the last one i heard was a suspected serial killer in the US that the murders stopped here when he moved to london around the time the whitechapel murders started
It seems like every 5 years they alternate between "Jack the Rippers identity found" and "Was Shakespeare gay/illiterate/french/really a woman/really an illiterate, gay, french woman???"
And he's from Russia originally, proof positive that Araysar is wrong about Russia being great.
Come and knock on our door...

I swear, if you read the news semi-diligently for a decade you start to see a pattern emerge. A pattern that looks somewhat like a steaming pile of bullshit.
Edit: I wonder who they will announce was "definitely" Jack the Ripper a couple of years from now?
The real question should be: why is Jack the Ripper still famous? Children are now beating that score.
