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.
