Steve Wright was convicted of murdering five women in Ipswich and all the news reports have concerned themselves with the women’s occupations.
The dead women were the children, sisters, and cousins of other living people. They had nieces and nephews. Some of them had their own children. They had friends. They had interests in life.
They were human beings, and they were killed by a savage, murdering pervert.
What they did for a living has nothing to do with this story.
For the record, I’d like to list for you the names of these women.
Gemma Adams, aged 25. Someone’s daughter.
Tania Nicol, aged 19. Someone’s daughter.
Anneli Alderton, aged 24. Someone’s daughter. Someone’s mother.
Paula Clennell aged 24. Someone’s daughter. Someone’s mother.
Annette Nicholls, aged 29. Someone’s daughter. Someone’s mother.
