I agree. It is highly improbable that official police records will provide any definitive evidence of the identity of the Whitechapel Murderer.

If his identity is ever to be established, it is likely, in my opinion, to be from the family/descendants of the murderer who have information/artifacts that have not yet been made public. Though, I wouldn't bet on that ever happening.

Or maybe, one day, we invent a time machine or time viewer that answers the question for us. This is probably more likely.

Do you have something in mind, PS?

Unless more of them turn up, I don't think that those pictures could be any more analysed than they have been already. Advances in technology maybe? I'm not sure what advances though.
