DETROIT — After it was found that three of the four women who were found dead in the trunks of cars in Detroit had pages on the classified ad website, BackPage.com there is speculation that a serial killer may be responsible.
All four women found dead where African-American. Two of them were found burnt beyond recognition.
Channel 6 Detroit reports:
The chief said at least three of the victims were working as escorts and had posted ads on BlckPage.com, a website which is similar to Craigslist but allows postings for adult services such as escorts, massages, strippers and fetishes. “The link between the three females and this website specifically dealt with prearranged adult dating services,” he explained.
Police stopped short of calling it the work of a possible serial killer, but Godbee warned people using the site to be careful. “We are not passing judgment on any individual who is utilizing this website, yet we felt it was imperative to alert the public that deciding to meet unknown persons via the internet, can be extremely dangerous,” he said.
