About Jack the Ripper Experience
The Official Jack the Ripper tour from Russell Edwards. Our tour guides have over 50 years experience and expertise into the case and have an untold wealth of knowledge to pass onto the fellow travelers on our thrilling and utterly engaging journey into the 'Autumn of Terror'. The only tour to include Aaron Kosminski's home. Tours run 3 times every day, starting at 10:30am, 13:30pm and 19:00pm from Aldgate East Tube Station, Exit 2. Tours last approx 2 hours. Look out for the man in the Bowler Hat. Using DNA evidence, Russell Edwards is able to conclusively name Jack the Ripper as Polish born Aaron Kosminski. The biggest murder mystery of all time has now been solved, thanks to DNA on a Victorian shawl and forensic science. In 2007, businessman Russell Edwards bought a Victorian shawl at an auction. The shawl was large - over 7 feet long, made of silk, obviously very old, and damaged, with pieces missing. The shawl had been taken by a policeman from the murder scene of Jack the Ripper's fourth victim, Catherine Eddowes, on 30 September 1888. Since then, aside from a few years in Scotland Yard's Black Museum, it had been safely stored away by the direct descendants of that policeman. In his book, Naming Jack the Ripper, Russell Edwards details the years of dedicated historical and scientific research that have gone into proving without doubt that Aaron Kosminski was Jack the Ripper.
