Has Jack the Ripper been identified for real this time?9/4/2012
Another pair of writers think they've figured out who Jack the Ripper was. Authors Christer Holmgren and Edward Stow have decided that the infamous Ripper was Charles Cross, a cart driver who discovered the body of Mary Ann "Polly" Nichols and who lived within walking distance of the other four victims. "The police at the time were looking for some sort of special individual," Stow said. "But most crimes turn out to be someone quite ordinary." Cross was never considered a suspect at the time, despite his presence at the first murder scene or the fact that he lied to police officers when they questioned him. [Source]
