That is the reality of the situation, and that's how the victims are who the victim's are.
Yet, the young and fair Frances Coles was picking up sailors in the Princess Alice.

I am not saying the victims where written in Stone Jon. What i am saying is that the majority of women walking the streets at say 2 in the morning would be more like Polly than Francis.
The Yorkshire ripper attacked Prostitutes, yet all his victims weren't, but the majority where because they where the easier targets for him

Hi Eten

This is pretty much a myth that serial killers target women who look a certain way. Basically its been put down to forensic psychologists pet theories trying to justify there existence.

Ex-It was widely circulated by some that Bundy was targeting women that looked like his first girlfriend who spurned him. Thing is he got her back and blatently spurned her. she was going to marry him.

and when asked he said that idea was bunk. he said its just because all girls basically looked like that at the time, and specifically denied he was trying to target girls that looked like her.

I'm sure the ripper was after any woman who would accompany him to a secluded place. and desperate prostitutes were the ones.
