DNA Evidence of Jack the Ripper's Identity

Researchers believe that they may have identified who Jack the Ripper was with the help of genetic analysis.

However, this still may not be enough to say for certain that the man being pointed as the notorious serial killer was indeed the one who committed all the murders. It might give researchers a bit of direction toward finally cracking the case.

So who is it?

It's not that it's old hat, it's that it is invariably wrong and misleading. The murders have not been solved, no one knows the identity of the perpetrator, and there is no evidence or artifacts that remain from the crimes. There may BE such evidence, and I have speculated that there is, but the chance of it ever being found and/or identified is very, very, low.

If you are interested in JTR, try and and see for yourself.
