Rippercast: The Whitechapel Murders Podcast
Professor Turi King on the Eddowes Shawl Paper
March 23rd, 2019
Duration: 00:55:27

We are pleased to welcome Professor Turi King from the Department of Genetics and Genome Biology at the University of Leicester to talk about the 2019 publication of the 'Forensic Investigation of a Shawl Linked to the "Jack the Ripper" Murders by Jari Louhelainen, Ph.D and David Miller, Ph.D in the Journal of Forensic Sciences.

Professor King led the famous genome sequencing project on the remains of Richard III and we are very grateful for the time she was able to spend with us discussing this topic.

Joining the round table discussion were numerous Ripperologists. Those who questioned the Professor were:

Robert House, the author of 'Jack the Ripper and the Case for Scotland Yard's Prime Suspect'.

Steve Blomer, researcher and writer.

Jon Rees, researcher, writer and lecturer.

Brian Young, researcher, writer and lecturer.

Hosted by Jonathan Menges

Very special thanks to Chris Phillips, Paul Begg, Tom Wescott and John Malcolm.
