Suspects have ranged from a member of Royal Family to a local butcher – but it is now claimed that Jack the Ripper was the very detective who led the hunt for the killer.
Mr Abad is a handwriting expert and has compared Abberline’s writing with that in the Ripper’s diary – which surfaced in Liverpool in 1992. Mr Abad, says: ‘I have no doubt Abberline was the Ripper. Handwriting does not lie.’

Wouldn't be shocked if it was the investigator, explains who he got away with the crimes. Or even that of a doctor involved in the case(as the Hollywood movie illustrates). Earlier this years news on Jack the Ripper, said that Scotland Yard was trying to keep the files a secret. See here A conspiracy of the Scotland yard to hide the truth, or a writer just claiming what he thinks is the truth...we'll see...maybe.

I doubt Chief Inspector had the scientific skills The Ripper had. Check 4 first canonical victims and finally "admire" the fifth. Abberline? In my opinion, impossible. Or even worse, inconsistent. Could have Abberline written that diary? Of course. But in my opinion all this are just summer tales (to be turned into summer sales)

I wasn't aware that Scotland Yard refuses to release the Jack the Ripper files. That is insane! Who are they protecting? It can either be a member of the establishment/Royalty or a colleague.edit on 6/8/11 by Lebowski achiever because: (no reason given)
