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 ……..AARON KOSMINSKI POLISH JEW
The following Six were commonly beleived to have been Jack the Ripper
The landmark discovery was made after businessman Russell Edwards , 48, bought the shawl at auction and enlisted the help of Dr Jari Louhelainen, a world-renowned expert in analysing genetic evidence from historical crime scenes.Dr Jari Louhelainen is a leading expert in genetic evidence from historical crime scenes, combining his day job as senior lecturer in molecular biology at Liverpool John Moores University with working on cold cases for Interpol and other projects. He agreed to conduct tests on the shawl in his spare time.
A shawl found by the body of Catherine Eddowes, one of the Ripper’s victims, has been analysed and found to contain DNA from her blood as well as DNA from the killer.
Using cutting-edge techniques, Dr Louhelainen was able to extract 126-year-old DNA from the material and compare it to DNA from descendants of Eddowes and the suspect, with both proving a perfect match.Using an infrared camera, he was able to discover that the dark stains were not just blood , but consistent with arterial blood spatter caused by slashing – exactly the grim death Catherine Eddowes had met.
But the next revelation was the most heart-stopping. Under UV photography, a set of fluorescent stains showed up which Louhelainen said had the characteristics of semen
Since only mitocondrial DNA could be extracted the expert had to trace a direct descendant through the female line of Catherine Eddowes. Luckily, a woman named Karen Miller, the three-times great-granddaughter of Eddowes, had featured in a documentary about the Ripper’s victims, and agreed to provide a sample of her DNA.Jari managed to get six complete DNA profiles from the shawl, and when he tested them against Karen’s they were a perfect match.
Jari used the same extraction method on the semen traces on the shawl, warning that the likelihood of sperm lasting all that time was very slim. He enlisted the help of Dr David Miller, a world expert on the subject, and in 2012 they made another incredible breakthrough when they found surviving cells. They were from the epithelium, a type of tissue which coats organs. In this case, it was likely to have come from the urethra during ejaculation.
Then Dr Louhelainen used a new process called whole genome amplification to copy the DNA 500 million-fold and allow it to be profiled.
Once he had the profile he decided to match the DNA of the descendant of the perv most commonly believed to be Jack the Ripper Kosminski He compared it to that of the female descendant of Kosminski’s sister, who had given a sample of her DNA swabbed from inside her mouth.The first strand of DNA showed a 99.2 per cent match, as the analysis instrument could not determine the sequence of the missing 0.8 per cent fragment of DNA. On testing the second strand, they achieved a perfect 100 per cent match.
