    That's a fascinating read!
    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    The missing and murdered cannot cry out for Justice. It is the duty for the living to do so for them.

    There is no record (from a very detailed list) of a shawl found with Eddowes so what does that tell you?
    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

    I would be very surprised to find enough usable DNA still on the shawl over 100 years later.
    And if there was it would most likely be contaminated.
