Several weeks ago, there were numerous UK publications that reported the assertion that Jack the Ripper was actually Polish Jewish immigrant Aaron Kozminski. Author Russell Edwards, "Naming Jack the Ripper" explains that he had secured a scarf of one of the victims, that had been found next to the body, and had it tested for DNA. He based his declaration on this examination. The results of the exam have not been published in any scientific paper, and were performs by a company hired by the author, and he possesses the results of this test and has not shared the results with others.

However, it has been discovered by a number of independent researchers and scientists that this DNA exam was seriously flawed, and give serious doubt as to their validity.

Also the scarf's authenticity has been called into question - it was obtained by the author, from a family who claimed that they were just storing it, as a family ancestor had been a police officer working on the original investigation (126 years ago), and there is no "chain of evidence" to the possession of the scarf - is it truly the scarf of one of the victims?

The mystery of these horrific crimes from 126 years ago and suspect Jack the Ripper actually still remains unresolved.
