UK Fears New "Jack The Ripper"

Blame Bush for not catching the first one.

Three prostitutes dead, two missing, with fears of "the worst." Five prostitutes.

English police said Wednesday they continue to "fear the worst" about two missing prostitutes from a town where three other sex workers have been killed, one of them strangled, by an apparent serial killer.

The naked corpses of two women found at the side of a busy road on Tuesday were thought to be those of Paula Clennell and Annette Nicholls, two prostitutes who were recently reported missing, according to Detective Chief Superintendent Stewart Gull.


Their being left close to the side of the road — instead of in a more secluded area — prompted British media to ask officials whether the killer may be growing hasty in the disposal of victims' bodies.

Gull told Sky News that it could just as well mean the killer — or killers — deliberately dropped the body in a location where it would be more easily found.

"I can't anticipate what's going on inside his head, but clearly he's a dangerous man and we need to find him as quickly as we can," Gull said.


Authorities have pleaded with sex workers "to get off the streets as soon as possible," as the story grips the nation and evokes fears of a contemporary serial killer in the land of "Jack the Ripper".


Like, William Gull?
