    Keep off the streets, British prostitutes urged By Alessia Pierdomenico
    Wed Dec 13, 8:17 AM ET

    LEVINGTON (Reuters) - Police hunting a serial killer who is murdering women at a rate unprecedented in British criminal history urged prostitutes on Wednesday to stay off the streets.

    Five naked bodies have been found near the eastern English port town of Ipswich in the last 11 days, terrifying the community in an area where serious crime is relatively rare.

    Detectives have identified three of the dead women as prostitutes. Police said they feared the other two bodies may be sex workers from Ipswich who had been reported missing.

    Paula Clennell, 24, has not been seen since Saturday and Annette Nicholls, 29, has been missing for at least a week.

    "Three of their peers have been murdered, now tragically possibly another two. It's not safe. They need to stay off the streets," Detective Chief Superintendent Stewart Gull told BBC radio.

    The discovery of so many victims in so few days has raised fears another "Ripper" targeting prostitutes is on the loose.

    For Cindy Lou Who to find out the Grinch is a flaming ****.

    In sincerity, for a Jack the Ripper copycat.

    Is this the liberal media's method for changing the word "prostitute" into the "politically correct" designation of "sex worker"?

    Excuse me, but what the fuck does this have to do with whether or not the media is liberal?

    Maybe they were trying not to be redundant since prostitute is used in the sentence immediately prior? D'uh? *rolling eyes*
