After more than 130 years of mystery, researchers believe they might have finally discovered the true identity of one of the world's most notorious killers, Jack the Ripper.

Jack the Ripper committed five murders in London's Whitechapel district, and up to six more deaths have at times been attributed to the killer.

The evidence is a stained silk shawl found next to the mutilated body of one of the victims: Catherine Eddowes.

They wrote: "We describe for the first time systematic, molecular level analysis of the only surviving physical evidence linked to the Jack the Ripper murders". The shawl's provenance is unproven, but it is spattered with stains that appear to be blood and semen.

However, many researchers dispute Miller and Louhelainen's physical evidence, claiming there is no proof the shawl was ever present at Jack the Rippers crime scene.

Over a century later, scientists from Liverpool John Moore's university in the United Kingdom claim to have conducted the "most advanced study to date regarding this case". They pointed out that Louhelainen and Miller failed to mention the specific genetic variants they identified and compared between DNA samples.

Eddowes was the second woman to have died at the hands of Jack the Ripper that night - he had slit Elizabeth Stride's throat an hour earlier.

Scientists say Aaron Kosminski, whose name has previously been connected to the case, was the notorious serial killer who murdered women on the streets of Victorian London.

The study also includes an analysis of the killer's appearance which suggests the killer had brown hair and brown eyes. which matches the only reliable witness statement, according to Science.

"To our knowledge, this is the most advanced study to date regarding this case", the authors noted.

Businessman Russell Edwards, 48, who bought the shawl at auction in 2007, contacted the university scientists several years ago.

"In the test, 99.2 percent of matches were shown in the first result". He was criticized by geneticists for not releasing enough technical details about his analysis.

Kosminski was a Polish Jewish immigrant who, fleeing persecution in his Russia-controlled homeland, came with his family to England in 1881 and lived in Mile End Old Town.
