Go ahead, tell me what you think about the concept. Believe it’s ridiculous? Then say so, but what are you basing that on? Years of Van Gogh research? Ripper research? Consider yourself a Ripperologist? Have you researched both areas? Or do you just love Van Gogh and think no way? Regardless, all I ask is that you understand I’ve researched both areas in detail and my conclusion is based on the facts and evidence, not on feelings about how lovely or great an artist Van Gogh was.
If you believe you know something that disproves my claim, go ahead and give it a try. You will fail.
If you believe it’s possible and find it fascinating like I do, then feel free to say so and ask any questions you like. I’ll try to answer as promptly as possible.
I realize until I find my way forward and the book is available, this will continue to be viewed with great skepticism and doubt. The day will come, though, and the reality of Van Gogh’s true nature will be widely known, and the Jack the Ripper case will be viewed as being solved.
The recent story that received lots of attention and the book claiming the Jack the Ripper case had been solved by DNA, has come unraveled. The Independent article provides the details:
Jack the Ripper: Scientist who claims to have identified notorious killer has ‘made serious DNA error’
My view: “Swiss cheese tastes good, but it has lots of holes and smells bad.”
Stephen Ryder, who runs Casebook.org, the definitive “everything Jack the Ripper” website, has commented about some of the holes here:
Buzzfeed article provides a timeline to show how Van Gogh’s life matches to murder. A London prostitute was murdered during the same time Vincent obtained a few days of freedom from his asylum.
Here’s a quick summary of Vincent Alias Jack on the place for scholarly research and discovery–Academia.edu.
The curiosity and controversy continue for VINCENT ALIAS JACK on the forum at Casebook.org.
Rush listeners–this is for real. I live in Realville, just like Rush and all of you. The initial discovery of hidden images led to 3 years of intense research, and the evidence is clear–Vincent van Gogh was Jack the Ripper!
Please help spread the news and get the story out there.
Thanks, Snerdley, for letting me on, and thanks Rush for allowing me to tell about the book. It means a lot to me. This one is for real.

For those who haven’t heard . . .
I’ve obtained a literary agent for VINCENT ALIAS JACK! Needless to say, very excited about this. One step closer to getting it on the shelf. Here are the details.
The agency: Corvisiero Literary
The agent: Stacey Donaghy
Stacey is proving to be just the right agent for me. Besides keeping me in line, she’s also a little twisted like I am. Her enthusiasm and fascination for the book also makes her the ideal agent to represent the book to editors and publishers. Expecting great things.
Thanks for the patience of those who are following along with this. It will still require more, but less than before. 🙂
