Documentary examines Jack the Ripper suspect

The finance is now in place for a new documentary that promises to explore a major new scientific development in the gory story of Jack The Ripper.

Jack The Ripper: Prime Suspect is a doc being coproduced by Australia's Network Seven, UKTV and Discovery Channel in Canada, with BBC Worldwide handling distribution.

With top-up finance from government funding body Screen Australia, Fremantle-based indie Prospero Productions is all set to produce the show. Prospero founders Julia Redwood (Gallipoli's Deep Secrets) and Ed Punchard (Dino Stampede) are the doc's executive producers.

The doc will explore the possibility that Australia's first serial killer Fredrick Bailey Deeming was behind the notorious murders in 19th century London. He was a suspect when he was executed in 1892 and some DNA was recently extracted from his skull in an Australian lab.

"If DNA can be discovered that can be linked to the crimes, Deeming could finally be proved to be the world's most notorious killer or once and for all eliminated from the enquiries. The hunt is now on," according to the producers.

COMMENT: There are two chances that Frederick Bailey DEEMING was Jack the Ripper - Buckley's and none! 
This will be money wasted by the 7 Network Australia, although a few gullible souls might believe the story.
