British writer detectives Patricia Cornwell claims to have found new evidence that sheds light on the identity of the infamous serial killer Jack the Ripper, writes British newspaper Daily Star.
In his new book, Cornwell concludes that the killer was British painter Walter Sickert.
According to the writer, three letters signed by Walter Sickert, and two notes sent to the Metropolitan police by Jack the Ripper in 1888, was from one of the bundles of paper, consisting of 24 sheets.
Cornwell also claims that instead of five proved murders on account of Jack the Ripper more than 20.
