THE man leading the hunt for the Suffolk serial killer today said that he “could not exclude” the possibility that the murderer may start to target women in general.

So far the killer has claimed five victims and it is thought that all were prostitutes - Gemma Adams, Tania Nicol, Anneli Alderton and the two women found yesterday, feared to be Paula Clennell and Annette Nicholls.

But at today's press conference Detective Chief Superintendent Stewart Gull warned the general public to take care over the festive period, lest the killer strike again.

“I can't exclude anything,” he said. “Clearly we are coming into the festive period. People are going to be out and about socialising and they need to take precautions.”

DCS Gull also appealed to the public to report anyone they thought was behaving suspiciously.

“The offender may be displaying uncharacteristic signs,” he said. “Clearly, if anybody is concerned about an individual then they need to contact Suffolk police.
