Jack the Ripper letters written by the same person, forensic linguist confirms

In addition to the historical value of my findings, they could help forensic linguists to better understand the important issue of individuality in linguistic production," researcher Andrea Nini said.

Jan. 29 (UPI) -- Two of the most famous letters signed by Jack the Ripper were penned by the same person, according to the analysis of a forensic linguist at the University of Manchester in Britain.

Jack the Ripper is an unidentified serial killer believed to be responsible for a string of brutal murders in the Whitechapel district of London in 1888.

The killings were known as the "Whitechapel murders." In a letter to a local neighborhood watch group, an author claimed responsibility for the violence. The author signed the letter "Jack the Ripper."

A flood of similar letters -- to newspapers, police stations and neighborhood groups -- followed.

The vast majority of the letters were obvious hoaxes. Criminologists and historians have suggested many were written by journalists hoping to boost newspaper sales but some believe the earliest letters were authentic.
