~Evil Grin~ I like the Ripper murders too. From a fairly scientific point of view, of course.
Hahahahaha, I always get that question when people find out I'm interested in the Jack. The weird thing is, I have no interest whatsoever in any
other murder investigation, something about Ripper just fascinates me.
I don't want to go breaking any rules on my first day or anything and I'm not sure this is the forum for this but here's my short answer: I don't
know. Cornwall presents some interesting evidence, particularly the mitrochondrial dna stuff she did that really points the finger at Sickert but I
doubt it. A lot of people desperately want it to be linked to the royal family but I doubt that too. Maybrick had the diary about 10 years ago or so
that seemed to implicate him, although I think that's a hoax. Chapman wouldn't surprise me, actually.
I'll get more in detail later, but what I do believe is that Abberline knew who it was and took it to the grave with him, for whatever reason. I
think his clue about "looking up and not down in society" is dead on, but I just don't know who to look at! hahaha
As far as "From Hell" is concerned, I have it on DVD and find it an entertaining movie, but you can't blame the Freemasons for everything! I think
their premise is a bit off.
