So far it still looks like James Kelly.

James Maybrick is the most popular suspect among "Ripperologists," but the "Diary of Jack the Ripper that emerged in the 1990s has been confessed to being a hoax by Michael Barrett, an unemployed former Liverpool scrap metal dealer, who probably needed the money at the time. Maybrick would not even be considered a suspect at all if it weren't for the diary, he was too ill from being poisoned from his wife at the time!

Francis Tumblety, second most popular suspect, well I agree that a gay man probably wouldn't be interested in prostitutes, his 'candidacy' probably derives, in part from gay-bashing.

Mystery writer Patricia Corwell taps Walter Sickert as the suspect from DNA evidence on the letters. But how reliable is DNA evidence over 100 years old? No one else has ever used it for a murder suspect, especially from letters!  Only the 'From Hell' letter has been conclusively linked to the murders anyway (and it was unsigned), that is the one that had the piece of the kidney.
