Russell Edwards, a longtime Ripperologist, as those obsessed with studying the unsolved case are known, has published Naming Jack The Ripper, a book that claims to offer DNA evidence that the 19th century killer was Aaron Kosminski, a 25-year-old Jewish immigrant from Poland.

Kosminski’s family fled Poland in the early 1880s, escaping Tsarist pogroms, and settled in London. Kosminski, a barber, is said to have been a suspect at the time, and was ultimately institutionalized. He reportedly died in a mental hospital in Hertfordshire in 1919, at age 53.
