About the Author:
Colin Kendell became a professional genealogist in 1988 and has been able to combine research into the Ripper murders with my work. He had several articles published in the now defunct "Criminologist" magazine, including one suggesting that the badly disfigured woman found dead in the room of the final victim Mary Kelly was not actually her. Other authors have since taken up that idea. He conducts the occasional "Ripper Walk" around Whitechapel. He also has had a lifelong interest in Puccini. He took Puccini as his specialist subject in the Mastermind semi-final in 1995. He lives in Middlesex.
