A delayed reply--this was a fascinating article! I had read a book that Patricia Cornwell had written awhile back theorizing (incorrectly now) that Walter Sickert was the killer, but that was before this particular DNA could be extracted and studied, and perhaps before the shawl's existence was known. Writing the murder dates on the shawl was very creepy, too. Eww.

Subsequent articles are saying these results should be subject to peer review, something I agree with. I do, however, buy this particular story since Kosminski being the killer does add up with alot of accounts by police officers and a few of the witnesses.
