    Forensic expert: Jack the Ripper never existed
    'Jack the Ripper' is one of the most infamous serial killers of all time. Now that more information about the 125-year-old cold case has been brought to light, could it solve the mystery for good, or is it just another theory?

    This theory is nothing new and I see he's trying to hawk a book.
    I think the cannonical five murders were commited by the same individual but I doubt he was any of the famous suspects that have fallen in and out of vogue.
    Unfortunately this case is so old and so little remains in the way of evidence or even reliable information and has been so distorted and clouded by popular culture you can float ANY theory or suspect and and it really cant be 'ruled out' per se.
    And as long as the name Jack The Ripper still draws attention Theories and suspects will continue to pop up.
    The Truth though my be lost to History forever.
