Jack the Ripper unmasked: How amateur sleuth used DNA breakthrough to identify Britain's most notorious criminal 126 years after string of terrible murders

It is the greatest murder mystery of all time, a puzzle that has perplexed criminologists for more than a century and
spawned books, films and myriad theories ranging from the plausible to the utterly bizarre.

But now, thanks to modern forensic science, The Mail on Sunday can exclusively reveal the true identity of Jack the
Ripper, the serial killer responsible for at least five grisly murders in Whitechapel in East London during the autumn of 1888.

DNA evidence has now shown beyond reasonable doubt which one of six key suspects commonly cited in connection
with the Ripper’s reign of terror was the actual killer ? and we reveal his identity.

A shawl found by the body of Catherine Eddowes, one of the Ripper’s victims, has been analysed and found to contain
DNA from her blood as well as DNA from the killer.

The landmark discovery was made after businessman Russell Edwards, 48, bought the shawl at auction and enlisted the
help of Dr Jari Louhelainen, a world-renowned expert in analysing genetic evidence from historical crime scenes.

Using cutting-edge techniques, Dr Louhelainen was able to extract 126-year-old DNA from the material and compare it
to DNA from descendants of Eddowes and the suspect, with both proving a perfect match.

The revelation puts an end to the fevered speculation over the Ripper’s identity which has lasted since his murderous
rampage in the most impoverished and dangerous streets of London.

In the intervening century, a Jack the Ripper industry has grown up, prompting a dizzying array of more than 100
suspects, including Queen Victoria’s grandson ? Prince Albert Victor, the Duke of Clarence ? the post-Impressionist
painter Walter Sickert, and the former Liberal Prime Minister William Gladstone.

英国人ラッセル・エドワーズ氏が近く出版する新著で、DNA鑑定により犯人の身元を初めて突き止めたと発表、「120年以上にわたる謎、ついに解明か」と話題になっている。
英メディアによると、「探偵」を自称するエドワーズ氏は過去14年間、「切り裂きジャック」について独自に調査研究を実施。2007年、競売に出された事件被害者のショールを購入したが、ショールには殺害犯のものとみられる体液が付着しており、専門家がそのDNAを解析した結果、コスミンスキの子孫のものと一致したという。
