Soon, three more Jack the Stripper victims were discovered. Police were able to find the same automotive paint on two of the bodies. And because there was no other evidence , he was acquitted. Others have suggested that famous boxer and actor Freddie Mills was behind the killings.

He discovered that Jones was living in west London at the time of the murders under an assumed name, and has handed a file of evidence to the Metropolitan Police.

Professor Wilson suggests he was Jack The Stripper because he was living locally, had changed his name to Stevens, and had links to an industrial estate where police say the bodies were kept before being thrown into the Thames.

Professor Wilson says he hopes his 15-month investigation will help get justice for the victims' families.

'This is the biggest unsolved serial murder case in British criminal history with a killer who's even more prolific than Jack the Ripper,' he said.

The first victim was 30-year-old Hannah Tailford, who was found by the River Thames at Hammersmith in February 1964.

Irene Lockwood, 25, was found in April on the same stretch of riverbank where Hannah's corpse had been dumped

Several weeks later, passers-by came across the body of 22-year-old Helen Barthelemy in an alley.

In July, just up the river at Chiswick, the remains of Mary Fleming, 30, were found in a garage forecourt.

The corpse of a fifth victim, Frances Brown, 21, was discovered in Kensington during November the same year.

Professor Wilson's team eventually tracked down Jones' daughter, who had no idea of his background, describing him as 'an unassuming family man' who kept a 'terribly dark secret' until he died of cancer in 1971.
