Jack the Ripper’s identity finally revealed, forensic scientists claim

A few years ago, I had the chance to wander the Whitechapel District of London, England in the footsteps of Jack the Ripper, the serial killer responsible for a series of ghastly murders that haunted Victorian London. It was a haunting experience, further exacerbated as the sun set on the River Thames and the bells of St. Paul’s rang in the distance. I could only imagine how terrifying it must have been walking those lonely streets a century ago with the Ripper on the loose. “From Hell” indeed.

The Ripper, whose identity Scotland Yard was never able to determine, is once again making headlines. You see, two British scientists believe that DNA evidence finally confirms the identity of the heinous killer. Could the mystery finally be solved? For more information, follow the link below.

DNA research may finally unravel Jack the Ripper mystery

Forensic analysis by scientists in the UK may have unmasked Jack the Ripper more than a century after the murderer’s brutal killing spree sent shockwaves through Victorian London. Research by Dr. Jari Louhelainen, senior lecturer in molecular biology at Liverpool John Moores University and Dr. David Miller, reader in molecular andrology at the University of Leeds, claims to shed new light on the notorious serial killer.
