"RIPPER" MURDERS.
DR. FORBES WINSLOW'S BELIEF IN NEW YORK CONFESSION.

Dr. Forbes Winslow, the eminent specialist in diseases of the mind, who investigated the Whitechapel murder mysteries fifteen years ago, is disposed to believe that the man named Charles Y. Hermann, who has just confessed in New York to the crimes, is the original "Jack the Ripper."
In reply to an inquiry, Dr. Winslow has telegraphed to us as follows:

"Inasmuch as similar crimes have been committed in America, and there being no conclusive evidence that the "Ripper" was captured here, but only a supposition that is uncorroborated, I am inclined to believe this is the man. - WINSLOW."

Dr. Winslow has informed the Press Association that he does not believe that the man who has confessed is suffering from a hallucination.
A statement has been made that the original "Jack the Ripper" was captured and confined in a lunatic asylum in England, but Dr. Winslow is of opinion that the perpetrator of the crimes was never captured, and that there is no evidence of his ever having been incarcerated in an asylum.
The doctor's theory is that the man was a homicidal religious monomaniac, who suffered at the time from paroxysmal insanity, which led him to commit the murders.

Source: Daily Mail, Wednesday April 12, 1905, Page 5

Note: It is astonishing to read Winslow's statements found in the above article when, in 1888 he was so convinced that Jack the Ripper was a doctor that he practically knew who the fiend was; and that he even had himself photographed with 2 pairs of boots which he claimed was from the Doctor-Ripper himself.
