Researchers say they have finally unmasked Jack the Ripper, the infamous serial killer who terrorized London in the late 1800s.


A forensic investigation published in Journal of Forensic Sciences has identified the killer as Aaron Kosminski, a 23-year-old Polish barber and prime suspect at the time.


Kosminski was previously named as a suspect over 100 years ago and once again in a 2014 book by British businessman and Ripper researcher Russell Edwards. But the latest finding marks the first time that Edwards' DNA evidence has been published in a peer-reviewed journal, according to the magazine Science.

 

Researchers compared fragments of mitochondrial DNA — which the magazine noted is inherited from one’s mother — to samples from living relatives of Eddowes and Kosminski and found they matched those of Kosminski’s relative.


The study also includes an analysis of the killer’s appearance which suggests the killer had brown hair and brown eyes. which matches the only reliable witness statement, according to Science.

Holy shit.

 

I've been interested in him for a while. It just always made me queasy how these women must have felt and the fact that they never found out who he was.

 

 

The pictures with the reconstructed women are public domain and on the Wikipedia. It was weird seeing them. O_O And even weirder how insane this guy was.
