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…’.
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.

Many theories have been put forth some even accused George 111. We shall never know the truth,but this cannot be proved by some idiot foreigner quoting maths,how dare he interfere with English History,cheeky swine.

(2) try your second best, ........if that dont work
(3) give up you aint gonna win
Someday we'll look back at this and plow into a parked car.

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,
