I personally believe that this "Malay cook calling himself Maurice" is Jack the Ripper. No doubt in my mind that he is. I know there is abosolutely no evidence that supports this connection, but from the information that I have been reading about the two cases I think the cook was defiantly the murderer.
I believe this website will sum it up quite well and gives even more information about "Maurice" than the TrueTv website does:
I don't know if this connection has been posted before...I tried looking it up in the search bar, but nothing popped up. So I was inclined to share.
