Sex Worker Murdered In Boston

When I was eating lunch yesterday some guys at the next table were talking about a murder at the Copley Hotel in Boston, but for some reason I didn’t realize they were talking about something that had just happened.  I think the discussion stemmed from talk about a shooting here in Providence at a local gentleman’s club the other week, in which one angry patron managed to shoot three people. The people were joking about it, because the Copley’s pretty fancy and not the kind of place where shootings would ever happen.

I didn’t know the details of the Boston murder until now, though, and they’re pretty gruesome.

The victim was a 26-year old New York woman offering massages through Craigslist, and she was shot multiple times in the chest. Police believe that the murder was possibly related to an armed robbery at the Westin recently, in which a woman was held at gunpoint in her hotel room.  Surveillance photos, including the one above, have been released to media, though they’re not really much to go by.

I have a number of sex worker friends to regularly travel to Boston, and I’m worried about them, so hopefully this deranged individual gets caught soon.  (Also, hopefully the media will report sensibly on this; I’ve only read about it so far on sex-positive blogs, so I’m not sure what regular news coverage is like.)
