Jack the Ripper's Identity May Finally Be Revealed

Over 100 years after his gruesome murders, new DNA evidence may have finally revealed the name of the infamous Jack the Ripper.

During the late 1800s, Jack the Ripper murdered at least five women between the months of August and November of 1888. The murderer was never arrested or prosecuted, and since then, no one has been able to figure out who Jack the Ripper was.

However, NBC reports that the Journal of Forensic Science has finally identified him.

After analyzing semen and blood stains on the shawl of his fourth victim, Catherine Eddowes for eight years, two scientists have linked DNA to Aaron Kosminski. Kosminski was a 23-year-old barber and one of the police's prime suspects at the time.
