This has been debated before .Kosminski was not a suspect .The evidence against him were low standard .If that list/pronouncement happens today, with the supposed suspect possibly being mobbed and he then have to changed his name because of the stigma ,the police will be liable for damages/retraction.I have not but it's obvious enough, ask any lawyer.
Anderson's suspect does not matter because in the first place he did not say the witness verbally/explicitly told him he recognized the suspect but won't testify because he was a fellow Jew which I think he would have explicitly mentioned because it would have made his statement "the suspect was positively identified" (if I remember right) or something similar definite/unassailable. Then case would have made a different turn. More likely it was a hunch/read based on the reaction of the witness.

I was paid 1p for every "um", so I made out like a bandit. Otherwise, I appreciate the polite indifference.

Um...Um..Um.. It's all made up.

Why hasn't anybody considered the possibiity that Cohen or his family had simply anglicised their last name from Kosminski to "Cohen"?

If that happened then there were two "Aaron Kosminskis" of the same age walking around the East End in 1888.

Of course there are no workhouse or asylum casenotes that identify the former hairdresser, Aaron, or the former tailor, Aaron David, as a Ripper suspect. I wonder why that is.

Mark my words : when Scott kicks the bucket there will be found, among his papers, a dusty and yellowing document headed "Lifetime Achievement Award - Acceptance Speech." This tragically undelivered speech will break new ground.

One thing I have to address: When talking about the witness/suspect confrontation, I proposed a scenario where the witness may have been familiar the suspect beyond the episode in Berner St. On second thought, this is a silly suggestion.
