Ep 115 @RippertourLdn (Russell Edwards)

Russell Edwards (and Dr. Jari Louhelainen) brought the story out about the true identity behind the mythe and legend of "Jack The Ripper".

Using DNA evidence, Russell Edwards was able to conclusively name Jack the Ripper as Polish born Aaron Kosminski

The biggest murder mystery of all time has now been solved, thanks to DNA on a Victorian shawl and forensic science.

 In 2007 Russell Edwards bought a Victorian shawl at an auction. The shawl was large – over 7 feet long, made of silk, obviously very old, and damaged, with pieces missing. The shawl had been taken by a policeman from the murder scene of Jack the Ripper’s fourth victim, Catherine Eddowes, on 30 September 1888.  Since then, aside from a few years in Scotland Yard’s Black Museum, it had been safely stored away by the direct descendants of that policeman.

On the day we did this this interview  (September 16 2015)Russell met with Dr. Jari for the first day of project No. 2.

 

Enjoy our conversation. *smile*
