  • Jack the Ripper is Britain's Roswell: an old case, where everyone involved has kicked the bucket from old age, where there are loads of theories, tantalizing tales of government cover-up, but no 100 percent definitive answers - and just like Roswell, that's how it will always be!

  • Hmm...skeptical DNA expert Todd Disotell has now said on FB that "the matches are likely valid"

    Very interesting....

  • It may well be the case that he was the killer, but the problem is that (and just with the Roswell parallels) someone (rightly or wrongly) will come along and give an explanation as to why the new explanation is wrong.

    In the same way that some people consider it likely that Roswell was a Mogul balloon and others vehemently disagree.

    In other words, no matter what surfaces, when it's a very old case/incident, people will always find ways to disagree with the new data.

  • Of course the chain of custody will be questioned; that's the only logical point of attack since DNA is infallible (isn't it?). But at the moment it looks tight. Still . . .

    "I've got the only piece of forensic evidence in the whole history of the case."

    Seriously? There's no bloody apron from the night of the double killings? Nothing from the carnage that was left behind at Mary Jane Kelly's flat? Nothing that can be examined again with modern techniques? Hard to believe.

  • And to demonstrate how the Jack the Ripper is even more like Roswell...

    We have the new story that will no doubt convince many, but it's already being doubted:

    That's what I meant: Roswell and the Ripper are so alike in terms of having those who hold tight to certain theories, deny others, have no-one left from the era to interview, and which just becomes an old mystery with people fighting and arguing on opposite sides and still not getting anywhere.
