    I always bought the Walter Sickert theory that he did it. Patricia Cornwell put out a pretty good book on it a few years back

    A few years ago I was invited to go to the Black Museum at New Scotland Yard in London. It was a fascinating place. One of the exhibits was the evidence collected from the "Jack the Ripper" murders. There was dried blood on them. We were asked not to touch anything, but unlike museums in the USA, no guards were around and the pieces were out in the open where you could pick them up.
