Jack the Ripper has sensationally been revealed as a 23-year-old Polish barber after fresh DNA tests were taken from a blood-stained shawl.

Aaron Kosminski was the notorious serial killer who hunted on the streets of Victorian London, according to scientists.

New evidence finds that two sets of DNA traces on the clothing matches that of both Kosminski and one of his murdered victims Catherine Eddowes. The Polish immigrant lived with his two brothers and a sister in Greenfield Street, just 200 yards from where his third victim, Elizabeth Stride, was killed. The identity was confirmed by researchers from Liverpool John Moores University who shared their findings in the Journal of Forensic Sciences.

They wrote: 'We describe for the first time systematic, molecular level analysis of the only surviving physical evidence linked to the Jack the Ripper murders.

'Finding both matching profiles in the same piece of evidence enhances the statistical probability of its overall identification and reinforces the claim that the shawl is authentic.'

Just read this. The shawl was also investigated and appears to have originated in eastern Europe in the 1800's (probably in the report in the link) so it wasn't the victims as she had apparently pawned her shoes that night, the shawl would have been the more valuable to pawn surely, so considering its origins, it seems Kosminski could have brought it with him from home but why? Did he already know the victim and brought her a present to put her off guard, there's no evidence he had done anything like this previously though.
I'll have to read it again.
