  • Jack The Ripper Fingerprints

    I believe those are Jack the Ripper left hand fingerprints on Kelly's right leg.

    Based upon this, I think Jack the ripper was a right-handed person.

      Wikipedia - Fingerprint:

      In 1840, following the murder of Lord William Russell, a provincial doctor, Robert Blake Overton, wrote to Scotland Yard suggesting checking for fingerprints.
      The referenced article is Vital clue ignored for 50 years ...

      Letter shows Scotland Yard might have nailed Jack the Ripper on fingerprints, had it heeded a humble country surgeon
      Another crucial piece of evidence, destroyed?
      Andrew's the man, that is not blamed for nothing

        Based on the presumption its a left hand print. Since the bedding is stuffed down between the bed and the partition wall its presumed that he didn't do any cutting from the right hand side of the bed, but I don't see any reason why he might not have pulled it out a bit to work and slid it back after, catching the bedding between. Possible anyway. Also, if he is right handed and she is first cut while on her right side facing the partition wall, how does he get the knife to her throat using his right hand? Chokes her first and gets her on her back? No..the splatter on the wall suggests her artery was cut while she faced that wall.
