British serial killer Jack the Ripper has been identified as an Essex doctor called Stephen Herbert Appleford - by a Uruguayan mathematician who has never set foot in London.

Eduardo Cuitiño says two years of painstaking research has uncovered what Scotland Yard has failed to do since 1888 - in naming the man who murdered at least five prostitutes that year in the capital's East End.

The Professor of Statistics at the University ORT of Montevideo said Appleford was a surgeon working in the London Hospital of Whitechapel - the area where the victims died.

The Jack the Ripper stories has fascinated me for years, I wonder if we'll ever know the identity of the killer?

I think it is likely to be this guy:

DR THOMAS NEILL CREAM: Cream, a doctor specialising in abortions, was hanged in 1892 for several murders he committed in London and his last words were reportedly ‘I am Jack…’.

Yes well, my last words are going to be "I am Batman", doesn't actually make me Batman, does it?

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

I've also always been intrigued by old Jack. I think it's the unknown factor that keeps people fascinated.
I like the theories that he went to New York and continued to kill. Not cause of the killing, mind you, but because of the mystery.

We will never know for sure who Jack the Ripper is.  I'm afraid his identity has been long buried.  It is an interesting story though and always will be.

Yet another theory on the Ripper's identity, and again no real evidence. We will never know who the Ripper really was, and maybe it's better that way.  The main reason we still talk about the murders now is because of the mystery,

I wouldn't tell you now, would I???

I wouldn't call myself famous, just a talented amateur ;)

Dr. Thomas Neil Cream was in prison at the time of the Ripper murders, so it couldn't have been him. I suppose he just wanted to add onto his so called 'legacy ego' before died.
