Police investigating the deaths of two prostitutes in eastern England said Sunday they had found the body of a third woman.
The corpse was found at Nacton in Suffolk county, several miles (kilometers) from where two women's bodies were discovered earlier this month. Police said the body was that of a prostitute in her 20s, but did not name her.
Police have already linked the deaths of Gemma Adams, 25, and Tania Nicol, 19. Their bodies were found about 2 miles (3 kilometers) apart in a waterway near the city of Ipswich Adams' on Dec. 2 and Nicols' on Friday.
Tests are under way to determine how they died, reports AP.
Detective Chief Inspector John Quinton of Suffolk Police said the deaths were "strikingly similar." Both women were prostitutes who worked in Ipswich's small red-light district.
