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.
