New theory causes waves among those pursuing Jack the Ripper.

Ripperologists - self-appointed sleuths on the trail of Jack the Ripper - are in a spin over a book proposing Britain's most famous serial killer was a sailor who murdered when his ship visited London.
Trevor Marriott, a former detective and author of "Jack the Ripper: The 21st Century Investigation," says police wrongly assumed that the killer lived and worked in London's East End and failed to see a pattern between the dates of the crimes. "I believe the police were blinkered and didn't choose to look at the possibility the killer could be a merchant seaman," he said.
In London's grimy East End, the Ripper killed five prostitutes over 10 weeks in 1888.
Marriott believes the murderer arrived on one of a handful of ships that were docked in or near the East End around the dates of the killings, but he doesn't focus on any individual sailor.
He did find reports of six other Ripper-style killings in Nicaragua over 10 days in January 1889, just two months after the London spree supposedly ended.
A second new book, "Uncle Jack," by Tony Williams, proposes the killer was the author's ancestor, John Williams, a gynecologist to Queen Victoria's children, who had a clinic in the East End. - Reuters.
