We Might Have Unmasked The Ripper – Now To Find Out Why

The ripper was always a mystery, but we knew that sooner or later he would be unmasked through DNA technologies.  Now that we have a face for the killer, the mystery remains very much the same.  Why did he kill his victims?  And perhaps, for who?

From the Daily Mail:

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.

From the Masons to the Queen, (or should I say, from the Queen to the Masons?) hiring to kill or simply a killer on the streets?  Your guess is as good as mine.

A good book to get your hands on is entitled “Jack The Ripper:  The Final Solution” written by Stephen Knight.  I don’t remember the book in fine detail but I do still have a copy and I do remember it had some great information as to why The Ripper was doing what he was doing.
