    Needs to be peer reviewed by other more credible sources though!

    Agree it needs to be reviewed.

    Who would you consider more credible?

    from io9: Three Thing to Keep in Mind

    1. Wouldn't you know it, Edwards has a new book to promote. Naming Jack The Ripper comes out Tuesday, and is the latest in a long line of books that speculate on the identity of the infamous killer.
    2. Edwards and Louhelainen saw fit to announce their discovery to the world – a discovery based on a "DNA breakthrough" that Edwards describes as "innovative," "amazing," and "incredible" – not in the pages of a reputable, peer-reviewed scientific publication, but the Daily Mail.
    3. The discovery hinges on a 126-year-old, unwashed, blood-and-semen-soiled shawl said to have been recovered from the scene of one of Jack the Ripper's murders, though the shawl's actual provenance remains far from certain.

    Think the true idenity of Jack will be about the same as knowing who wrote hebrews" the lord only knows"
