What Do You Think?

There appears to be a serial killer on the loose in England. His/Her victims seem to be prostitutes. When the story first broke they kept comparing this new serial killer to an old one, Peter Sutcliffe, the Yorkshire Ripper, who killed 13 women, mainly prostitutes, in northern England between 1975 and 1980.

Do you think that comparing drives the current serial killer to committ more murders? I can see how it could. They would want to try and “one up” the past almost to say “hey, I’m bigger, badder and better.” Do you think that this new person isn’t even paying attention to the comparisons?

Let me know what you think about the comparing of old and new killers.

  1. Hmmm. Don’t know about old vs new. I asked recently on my own blog, would serial killers still do it, if nobody paid any attention? If the man they arrested today is the actual killer, then he was interviewed by the BBC and a tabloid (and he’s got his own myspace page). Seems to me he possibly doesn’t mind if he gets caught. Or maybe he thinks he’s cleverer than everyone else?

  2. I saw that they arrested someone. I hope it really is the guy and not someone trying to put themselves into the story, ya know what I mean?

  3. Something like that, you’d never know. Your guess is as good as mine. Either he could be some kind of Copy Cat or it could just be a mere coencedence. You never know.
