Are you refering to the theory put forward by Patricia Cornwall regarding Sickert. Actualy, just remembering off the top of my head, the DNA evidence although compelling was not entirely conclusive. Most of the evidence she quotes, his paintings seeming to echo or refer to the whitechapel murders, his disturbed early life and sexual dysfunction certainly wouldn't rule him out as a suspect but my money is still on the American self styled Dr, Tumblety sic, who fled Whitechapel for New York after coming under police suspicion and was followed over by two British detectives but managed to disappear. He was named as prime suspect in a recently released letter from that era by one of the men involved in the case.

What a load of absolute crap some of you have just spouted.
I'm a Brit. Jack the Ripper is our most notorious serial killer.
Nobody knows who he was or where he went. There is lots of speculation, but NOBODY, I repeat NOBODY, knows.
There is no proof he was a mason. No proof that he was a royal. No proof of anything.
Even the suggestion that he had medical training is pure speculation.
To suggest that he was a royal or a mason is very, very ghey. Thousands of researchers haven't been able to pin a single thing on him, yet you claim this bold statement here.
Either show me the facts or think before posting something that you so boldly assert to be true.
