The more aggressive and extreme of the lot conceived a plan to attack British strongholds in Canada. The idea was to hold Canada hostage. This would be accomplished by seizing key cities and centers. The raids were doomed from the start, not only because the whole scheme was incredibly far-fetched, but also because of the work of spy Henri Le Caron and his handler, Robert Anderson.
They made sure the best-laid Fenian plans were betrayed long before implementation. Shortly thereafter he began writing books, many of which are still widely read by Bible students today. It was quite remarkable that Anderson could think through and produce so many detailed studies of scriptural issues while immersed in a demanding and intense career.
The Gospel and its Ministry was published in , dealing with the great themes of grace, faith, repentance, reconciliation, and justification. A bit later he wrote what was likely the most widely read of his books — The Coming Prince. In it he dealt in-depth with prophecies found in the Book of Daniel about an end-time ruler.

Anderson thought of leaving government service in the early s, possibly to pursue his writing full time. But the rise of Fenian violence in London — including several bombings — kept him connected to secret work. He was involved in the creation of a new intelligence organization called the Special Irish Branch. This role put him in the perfect position at Scotland Yard to step into what would become the most sensational and controversial murder investigation in history. And he was the man in charge of the big case as fear gripped East London.

The crimes have never been solved and opinions abound. The list of suspects involves more than 30 names, including a member of the Royal family, author Lewis Carroll Alice in Wonderland , and at least one woman. Robert Anderson actually believed that the crime had been solved, and over the years he left hints as to the identity of the killer.
For example, this item was in the March 21, , edition of the Washington Post :. Sir Robert Anderson, for more than 30 years chief of the criminal investigation department of the British government, and head of the detective bureau at Scotland Yard, has at length raised the veil of mystery which for nearly two decades has enveloped the identity of the perpetrator of those atrocious crimes known as the Whitechapel murders.

Anderson retired from public life in and was knighted. Not at all. That's according to two experts, a geneticist and a Ripperologist a Jack the Ripper historian , who spoke with Live Science about the new study. In fact, this study has so many holes in it — including the provenance of the shawl, contamination of genetic material on the shawl, and the methods used to analyze this genetic material — that it's a wonder it was published at all, said Turi King, a reader in genetics and archaeology at the University of Leicester, who was not involved in the study.

Jack the Ripper is notorious for killing and mutilating five women in London in just three months during According to the new study, a silk shawl was found by the body of Catherine Eddowes, a victim killed by Jack the Ripper during the early morning hours of Sept. Acting Sgt. Amos Simpson reportedly took this 8-foot-long 2. Soon after, descendants of Eddowes and one of the top suspects , Aaron Kosminski, who at the time was a year-old Polish barber, were located by study lead researcher Jari Louhelainen, a senior lecturer of molecular biology at Liverpool John Moores University in the United Kingdom.
Then, with study co-researcher David Miller, a reproduction and sperm expert at the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom, Louhelainen looked at mitochondrial DNA genetic material passed down by mothers on the shawl. The researchers found the genetic material on the shawl matched the descendants of Eddowes and Kosminski.
The analysis also revealed, the researchers claim, that the killer was a man with brown hair and brown eyes , which matches an eyewitness account from that time.
It's unknown how common brown eyes and hair were in , but today in England blue eyes are more common , the researchers noted. These results were initially made public five years ago in Edwards' book "Naming Jack the Ripper" Lyons Press, , but this is the first published study on the analysis.
