Oh, when I read this I thought he was trying to tell us that it was not true that another Jack the Ripper is again lurking …. when a 5th prostitute was found dead, murdered.|
The most notorious such killer was the 19th century murderer known as "Jack the Ripper", who was blamed for the deaths of five prostitutes in east London in 1888 but was never found.
The most prolific was Peter Sutcliffe, called the "Yorkshire Ripper", who murdered 13 women, mainly prostitutes, in northern England from 1975 to 1980 before he was caught.
"No one has ever had to deal with this before," said Alastair McWhirter, chief constable of Suffolk Police.
"If you think back to the Yorkshire Ripper, that was over weeks and months that those murders took place. This is unprecedented and we are dealing with it," he added.
The massive police inquiry began on December 2 when the body of Gemma Adams, 25, was found in a stream in the west of the town. Police divers then discovered 19-year-old Tania Nicol in the same stretch of water on December 8.
Officers are still only officially linking these two murders but say there are similarities with the death of the third prostitute Alderton.
She was found strangled but there were no signs that Adams and Nicol were asphyxiated.
Police have warned prostitutes to stay off the streets and women have been advised not to go out alone.
Earlier on Tuesday, Gull said he believed sex workers might have vital information that could help identify the murderer.
"I am convinced the working prostitutes in Ipswich probably hold the key as to who is responsible," he said.
What precedence, what history and what a record when it comes to cases of murders and murdered prostitutes in "your Majesty", my tmphgt.
Yeah, there is really no need to have a point. NO POINT! This is FREE TALK, after all.
