Stephen Griffiths Is Back In the News

by | 11th, August 2010

WHAT news of Stephen Griffiths, whose, allegedly, murderous quest for fame was stymied by the lunacy of Derrick Bird and Raoul Moat? This was to be a summer of dead prostitutes, woman allegedly killed by Griffiths who worked in vice in and around Bradford. Journalists would give us lurid tales of dirty sex, death and more dirty sex.

Well, Suzanne Blamires has been laid to rest. It was the discovery of her remains in the River Aire at Shipley, near Bradford, that led to Griffiths being charged with her murder, as well as those of Shelley Armitage and Susan Rushworth.

How do media lead with the burial of a murdered woman? Let’s look at the headlines:
