Sad news again this morning that another young prostitute has been murdered. Police say a fourth woman missing and hasn't not been seen since late on Saturday.

Sadly the last time this happened in the late 1970's, I noted a national lack of sympathy because of their profession. We shouldn't judge anyone. They are people and still have a right to life.

Let's hope the police make a better job of this case than they did of the last Ripper one.

There is a person in B.C. that has been associated with dozens of murders. He has recently been formally charged with 7, I think.

I understand the arguments for the abolition of capital punishment. Removing the possibility of executing an innocent person is the most prevalent.

So, let's change the criteria. A person shall not be executed on the sole basis of circumstantial evidence. Eyewitness testimony is unreliable at best. But if the guy is caught on video, at the scene, standing over the dead body(bodies)with the barrel of the gun still smoking, I say introduce him to "Old Sparky"!!!!!

Strange because I did. I remember reading in the papers at the time the initial fears and reactions of all women living in the area seemed to ease somewhat after it became clear all his victims were working women.

A lot of people sadly tended to take the attitude it was a risk that came with the job. Had they been traffic wardens or police women I would image there would have been a greater outcry.

Ah sure Keith, what would a thick paddy know about it anyway !

I remember the Sutcliffe murders well. Not being in the area they did not make me feel unsafe but I did feel for the families of the murdered women. I also felt sorrow and disgust at yet another sick puppy targeting women, be they prostitutes or not - they all had a right to be safe.

I'm not aware of the latest murders - I now live in the States - but despair of the same old same old - almost always a disturbed male taking out on innocent women whatever grudge he bears against one or two. That, it seems is always the excuse given when these monsters come to trial.

I sincerely hope it NOT another Sutcliffe out there.
I do remember that a lot of people were appauled at the horrific nature of Sutcliffe's crimes but there was an underlying current of well.... look what some of the Victim's did for a living
In my opinion there are Prostitutes who work in other areas of Business not just the sex Industry....!

As Jacqui says ALL Women have the RIGHT to be safe regardless of their job description.

Let us hope that this Monster is stopped as soon as possible.
I too now live in the States but will watch this Thread for any updates.

These women are easy prey for creeps like this. When he's caught by the police no doubt we will hear of how his mother rejected him as a child, or his aunt kicked him in the balls when he was eleven. Or better still, God sent him messages.

Sadly some families will only hear the news for the first that their daughters were working girls instead of holding down a great job in an office somewhere. This will sadly add to their pain and suffering.

You will all be aware of what I think justice should be for men who attack, abuse or harm women.

This one looks particularly nasty, four in such a short period of time in a small area is pretty scary. Whilst 'the profession' of the victims may have helped to make them easy targets, I dont really feel that anyone in the Ipswich area can feel complacent. The next one could be a sixteen year old on her way home from a school Christmas Party. Profession has nothing to do with it, vulnerability is what it is about.

The bodies seem to be have been dumped and the murders took place elsewhere. These girls get into cars without arousing suspicion. The police have said examinations on the first two victims showed no signs of sexual assault.

Good point raised there Flash Company, he could graduate onto this, but sadly I imagine his victims walked quietly into their place of death without a struggle and that assisted him.

I remember the time of Sutcliffe's so-called "Ripper" murders very well as I was living in Bradford at the time. As somebody above has said, not all his victims were prostitutes. One, as I recall, was a young university student. Women did feel very vulnerable - you wouldn't have gone out to a corner shop in Manningham on your own after dark.

I was a young girl who lived in the area visited by the Ripper back in the 70s, believe me, there was NEVER a time that I felt safe because I was not a lady of the night! These kind of people make mistakes, they also are opportunist, who knows what is going on in this person's mind? it may be that these girls are easy prey rather than just that they are working girls. Nobody should take this lightly and no one should think these girls deserve the fate they have been dealt. For most there isn't a choice, they do their job out of need to survive rather than as a great career move. I'll keep them all in my thoughts and hope that whoever it is, is caught soon, the fear of going out knowing someone is preying on young women is terrifying, I remember it well.

On Monday of last week in a Belfast park there was one of the worst sexual assaults in recent times. A young girl in her twenties was subjected to a double rape then repeatedly beaten (held by one while the other kicked her about the face and body). She was then robbed of her handbag, mobile phone and £40.00. The attack took place at 6.15pm.


Two 13 year old boys were charged with the attack yesterday and appeared in a Belfast court his afternoon.

Nobody anywhere deserves to die the way these women have. I have long thought that the really sick part of society's attitude is the need to see prostitutes as being something "lower" than themselves. Selfish, bullying crooks of all colours, even when exposed, get less despised than women, who spend a part of their lives selling sex. I also suspect that many of those women, whom we call prostitutes, are supplying sex in a more tangibly honest way than many others, who (ab)use it to get their way. Like many other posters, I feel for these tragic women and their heartbroken families.

I remember well the in the 70's the fear that the Yorkshire ripper caused. I was living in Leeds at the time and worked at the ABC cinema in the centre of town. It meant getting the last bus home with a 5 minute walk to my home. I carried a metal afro comb in my pocket thinking this would put up a sort of defence if attacked. Knowing what we know now, I would never have had a chance to get the damn thing out of my pocket if I had been unlucky enough to be a victim.
I hope the women in the Ipswitch area stay indoors until this sick individual(s) is or are caught.
The media are not interested in anything else than the best headline, which is sad because you never know the real struggle that some of these women have had to put up with. it can't be an easy choice to sell your body. maybe it was their only choice - who knows.
I will think about this some more. In the meantime my heart goes out to their families and friends.

There is also another side to this, which will not be a popular thought. When the person(s) who have done this are found and the press do their thing, their families will have to go through hell as well. I have a friend whose son was an accomplice to a murder and the guilt that she felt over this was unsurmounable - she was a good mum and all that, but she kind of died with hers sons victim. So I will also have sympathy with the killers family.

Some of Pickton's victims were not even missed, for years, except by their working friends. To BC's credit, when the numbers finally emerged, there was general horror expressed by pretty much all, and without too much dwelling on the women's profession, other than to express shame that it took so long to see what was happening. More air time was given to the endless searches made by family members, often sisters of the disappeared, and often other prostitutes who had continually told police women were missing.

It is a very sickening case, and I wouldn't want to be a jury member either. Pickton is a despicable monster.

De-criminalisation of some things seems to work in Holland. Unless someone tells me otherwise? These women are not criminals - the people who exploit them and live off their earnings are a different kettle of fish but the women themselves should never be branded as such.

Would 'making honest women of them' realy protect them any more though? Surely whatever their trade they should receive the same protection as everyone else anyway?

If a murderer targets a specific subgroup of the population I think this information should be in the article or even in the headline. We had a murderer targeting shop owners of Turkish origin only (once he made a mistake and killed a Greek origin shop owner). The information that the victim was a Turkish origin shop owner was a necessary information in those cases and gave a warning to the targeted group.

We should not even discuss that prostitutes may not be murdered (raped, assaulted, robbed, cheated), we should take it as granted.

Thankfully forensics have moved on in the last century and he will be caught. Hopefully before he kills again, although I have a feeling there are victims to be getting into strangers cars as we 'speak.'

He will make a mistake as he gets away with more murders or an associate of his will be suspicious. Strange his dna hasn't led the police to him yet. Is he a new arrival to the UK? It seems incomprehensible that a man capable of these killings has no record. But then I don't really know enough about dna to know if it is quick to examine/foolproof.

The UK has had a spate of programmes lately all going into great detail about the gory tales of past serial murderers or serial paedophiles etc etc etc. The infamy gained from these kind of crimes is a turn on to a sick sick mind. He isn't doing it for sexual kicks. Power is a heady aphrodisiac.

I remember the Sutcliffe days well and the vigils held by women on the streets. I don't recall any apathy. Quite the reverse.

A review of the work of the Forensic Science service in Northern Ireland found mistakes in more than a third of cases.


Thankfully forensics have moved on in the last century !!

In the last six years, the service had its accreditation suspended twice, after revelations of a falsified signature and lab practice concerns.

About 1,200 cases were checked and 555 were found to contain mistakes.

The UK Accreditation Service had suspended the service's accreditation.

A series of cases were checked between 2001 and 2003. In that two-year period it was responsible for about 2,400 cases - of those, a sample 1,200 were reviewed.

The firm found 555 of the cases contained mistakes - more than a third.
