  1. Still have no idea who the Ripper was. Kosminski fits the profile up to his asylum inclusion. There was no record of him creating any issues or disturbances, which one would expect from a psychopath. And to be honest I don’t want to know who the Ripper was. It would take all the intrigue away.

    My great grandfather was one of the investigating officers in 1888 Whitechapel.

    Very good documentary. Throws a different light on the murders with the aid of modern technology.

  2. i think he turns his coat inside out so the blood is not on the outside. when hes finished turns it around. that would explain different jacket colours by witnesses.

  3. Peter Ustinov compared a TV show in 1988 with a panel of experts who came to the conclusion that Arron Kosminski was the Ripper. The verdict was unanimous

  4. wow i can’t explain

  5. I believe Charles Lechmere, the man who “discovered” Polly Ann Nichols meets the map profile. In fact, he walked past many of the murder sites to go to work, including Martha Tabram. He’s an equally viable suspect. Plus, Kosminski’s symptoms sound schizophrenic in nature, and as such, he might be less likely to remain uncaught and more likely confess to someone about the crimes – especially as his mental state worsened over the years.

  6. Hmm. Seems likely that they have nailed the Ripper. Bit of a shame really as the mystery was more interesting. Not the greatest doco I’ve ever seen but worth a watch.
