Is it okay for him to be holding the shawl (in the pic) without gloves on?

Of course it is, he probably knitted the shawl.

If this is a relative of Kosminski and the d.n.a matched then we all will have to accept this scientific fact but there are some people who will never be persuaded .

Completely agree.

However having seen a documentary featuring Edwards, where he hid the shawl in a 'secret location', I predict that he would not be willing to do this.

Sorry Wolfie

Even that wouldn't do it for me, want more proof on the shawl.

Mitocondrial DNA is secondary

From FBI Website

"The maternal inheritance of mtDNA allows scientists to compare the mtDNA profile from the evidence (hairs, bones, etc.) to that of reference samples from the individual; the individuals mother, brother(s), sister(s); or any other maternally related family member. These samples should have the same mtDNA profiles because all maternal relatives inherit the same mtDNA. Since mtDNA is maternally inherited and multiple individuals can have the same mtDNA type, unique identifications are not possible using mtDNA analyses"

According to Cornwells experts in 1901 the population of England was 40 million of which 1 in 400.000 would have likely to have the same mitocondrial DNA

Primary DNA matches are one in a billion

And as for his idea that the ripper left the shawl at the scene of the crime as a clue????????
