THE father of murdered Gemma Adams has spoken of his hope that the “evil force” behind the string of killings is stopped as quickly as possible.

As Suffolk police launched its fifth prostitute murder inquiry in just 10 days, Mr Adams sent his condolences to the families of the other victims.

His 25-year-old daughter was found naked in a brook in Hintlesham on December 2 after being missing for two weeks.

Speaking exclusively to the EADT, Mr Adams said: “My heart bleeds for the families of the other women. It's just so horrendous how this has all developed. Let's just keep our fingers crossed that this evil force is halted as quickly as possible.

Mr Adams said drugs were likely to be the indirect cause of each of the five murders.

“If it wasn't for heroin driving these girls out on to the streets, perhaps none of this would have happened - that's the fact of the matter,” he said.

“As far as I'm concerned, no woman puts themselves out on to the streets through choice. It's the addiction to drugs that's the driving force behind all the activity that goes on in the red light district.”

Since her late teens, Miss Adams had battled a devastating addiction to heroin that dramatically changed her personality and appearance.

In the past two years before her death, she gradually became more distant from her family and took to working on the streets to feed her habit.

Miss Adams lived with her partner, Jon Simpson, in Blenheim Road, Ipswich before her disappearance. Her clothes have yet to be recovered and police still do not know how she was killed.
