How about the fact that they were first and foremost women. Women with families and friends and loved ones. And since when did it become acceptable to broadcast the fact that the two (then) missing women were sex workers before their families knew of the missing girl’s secret?
I was just about to write about the media coverage of the recent murders in Suffolk I stopped after typing the title to do a quick blog check and saw that Gert has summed up just exactly what I was thinking and expressed it far better than I could so could I point you over there instead?
If I was an investigator..and this is purely the work of a mind who reads too much…I would wonder about the recent prostitute murders in New Jersey, and a link to the England murders. Now, just follow me for a second…The murders in Jersey apparantly took place over a couple of months. The bodies were all located in close proximity. So what if the murderer took a flight from Atlantic City airport to England to escape the investigations? And could not help his mania, and killed the English girls in quick time before he returns to the USA? Sound plausible?
I don’t know if there are many similarities and to be honest, I don’t want to do the research to find out but it’s something to ponder.
There’s a website devoted to this already?
