Reading about the murders in Suffolk from my mostly news free zone here in Spain, I immediately recall the work, still quietly ongoing since last year, three paintings and a silhouette of Norwich prostitute Michelle Bettles who was killed in March of 2002. Could those girls be killed by the same man that killed Michelle? A comment that someone had thoughtfully left in response to the posting above closed with the words, 'It's the bette Noir of any image that it never really gives itself away.'
